Bespoke training

Members of the Institute have substantial experience in providing Continuing Professional Development (CPD) training for lawyers, law enforcement investigators, and forensic scientists. This includes open CPD events, and tailored training delivered to law enforcement agencies, government departments, and commercial organisations. Please contact us if you want training tailored to your needs.

Topics we offer training on include:

  • General forensic linguistics
  • Interpreter-mediated interviewing
  • Linguistic investigative skills
  • Online identity assumption for undercover police officers
  • Forensic speech science
  • Forensic inference and statistics

This is the first in a series of CPD offerings in forensic linguistics/forensic text analysis that we will be offering. It has developed out of bespoke training that we have offered to police and other investigators over the years. This day is stand alone but is designed also to complement future offering from AIFL CPD in this area
