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

I wanted to become a Certified Forensic Interviewer to increase my interviewing knowledge, “hone” my interviewing skills that I have built up over the years, and be able to get all the details during an investigation.

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

Overall, I found the study course easy to navigate and access, for me the most challenging part was finding the time to study.

Do you use social media? If so which ones?

Although I did not use any social media, I did note that many of my connections on LinkedIn have been certified.

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

I have admired many people over the years, the common factor seems to be how they lead others.  They always encourage, mentor and genuinely care about others around them.

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

If able to change places with anyone, I guess it would have to be George Lucas, as he gave birth to the Jedi.  Anytime that a Star Wars movie is on I have to watch, even now I can’t count how many times I have seen them.

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

If stranded, a “Lightsaber” would be the ultimate tool, but until that becomes available I will have to say a machete’, tarp, and flint.

Lastly I would recommend CFI for anyone wanting to increase their knowledge of interviewing, it is a must for anyone’s “interviewing tool box”.
