Randy Lima, CFI

Why did you become a Certified Forensic Interviewer (CFI)?

For me it was about demonstrating credibility and building confidence in my skills.  I had taken Wicklander- Zulawski’s 2-day course twice, however that was many years ago and I wanted to ensure I was up-to-date with new legislation considerations and techniques.  I wanted to give myself a competitive advantage in the job market and show that I was engaged in ongoing education.  I also obtained my LPC and CFE certifications this year as well.

What was the most difficult challenge you came across while preparing for the CFI exam?

Setting aside time to study without interruption.

Do you use social media? If so, which ones?

Facebook somewhat, Twitter rarely and LinkedIn often

What are you passionate about?

My family, my faith, my Harley and music.

Who do you most admire? Who is your favorite person? Why?

Walt Disney.  Once told he lacked imagination, yet he provided so much joy for so many children and adults.  His legacy continues today.

If you could trade places for a day with anyone, who would it be?

A homeless person in the inner city. I think it would be humbling and allow me to articulate that we should be happy with what we have and recognize it could all be gone tomorrow.

If you were stranded on a desert island, what 3 things would you bring?

a.)  iPhone, lol

b.)  My wife and children (maybe not so nice sticking them there with me!)

c.)  Water in large quantities (drinking water)

What’s your favorite movie?

Rather than list a favorite movie, I will list my favorite actor, which is Sandra Bullock, because she is so humble and giving.
