Certificate IV in Government Investigations

If you are a misconduct investigator in the public sector, or likely to undertake misconduct investigations as part of your job, the Commission would like to hear from you - Places are limited!

Since 1 July 2015, the Commission has had responsibility for the oversight of minor misconduct of public officers and for misconduct prevention and education programs across public authorities (public sector agencies, local governments, public universities and government trading enterprises) arising from the Corruption, Crime and Misconduct Act 2003. The capacity of public authorities to undertake investigations into misconduct has been identified as an area that needs expansion. 

To support public authorities, the Commission is providing centrally managed and funded investigation training for public officers involved in, or likely to be involved in investigating non-compliance within their organisation. 

The training provides participants with the practical skills and knowledge to investigate non-compliance and report on investigations.

Participants completing this training will also gain enhanced career pathways and opportunities through workplace development within their own agency.

The training covers the recognised competencies required by those responsible for statutory investigations under a range of legislation, regulations, mandated government and organisational policy and instructions. On successful completion, participants will receive a nationally accredited qualification Certificate IV in Government Investigation.

All applications must be submitted by 28 September 2017 with nominees being informed of the outcome of the assessment process by 6 October 2017. The first course commences on October, with further intakes expected throughout the financial year. 

For further details about the course and the application form, please go to the Information for public authorities and candidates.
