The series of Analytical Interview System (AIS) training courses held across the US and Canada during 2009-2010 set a new standard in the field of Interview and Interrogation training. Without exception this course received the highest ratings from the local, state, federal and military professionals, as well as the international students who attended. The US Army AIS course held at Fort Bragg, NC, was a particular highlight for both the students and instructors – and provided US Army members with new skills and strategies for interviewing under a variety of unique conditions.
Based on the feedback received from our military and federal students a NEW 5-day AIS course has been created and is now approved by GSA. The skills taught during the AIS course can be used by any law enforcement, military or security professional – new or seasoned – and will dramatically improve their interviewing proficiency. Most of the comments received from those who attended AIS mentioned the new Comprehensive Statement Analysis and the Team Interviewing techniques as being among the highlights of the course.
These are just a few of the comments from our students concerning the advanced interview techniques taught only in the AIS Course:
“Excellent instructors, who were very knowledgeable and experienced in the field of interviewing and interrogation. I found the AIS course to be professionally valuable, and the methods and techniques taught in the course can be easily applied to my investigative duties. I found the AIS information and supporting materials pertaining to Body and Verbal Cues, Statement Analysis and Interview Planning to be very enlightening. AIS will definitely assist me in conducting more effective and comprehensive interviews and interrogations. I highly recommend the AIS Course to all law enforcement professionals.” – Detective/Sergeant Bernadina Trujillo, SMU Police Dept., Dallas, Texas
