EEO Investigator Certification

Interested in Becoming a Certified EEO Investigator?

Our 32-hour online course, which meets EEOC’s requirements for investigator training, provides potential investigators with knowledge and skills necessary to investigate Federal sector EEO complaints.  The course includes an overview of the EEO discrimination complaint process, the role and responsibilities of the EEO investigator, the theories of discrimination, interviewing techniques, and report writing.  You’ll be a certified investigator at the conclusion of the training.  

What’s the benefit to becoming certified?  You’ll be able to investigate Federal sector EEO complaints.  Check out a previous post where we discuss becoming an EEO investigator.  

We know there are other options for obtaining online EEO investigator certification.  Ours is superior, and we think you’ll agree.  When considering other options, here are a few of the factors to take into account:  

  • This is our primary line of work.  EEO investigations is what we do.  We have conducted investigations for numerous agencies and our training incorporates many of the unique requirements these Federal agencies have.  Upon completion of the training, you’ll have an understanding of what to expect when you are assigned work.
  • Our instructors have more than 75 years combined federal sector experience in the EEO field. They have served in a variety of capacities:  as investigators, reviewers of investigations, managers of the EEO complaint process, management officials, HR managers, and EEO specialists.  Our training is built around this extensive knowledge.  What this means is that our team brings recent and real-life experience to the training, and you’ll have the benefit of our experience through personalized feedback on all of your assignments.
  • We also know the successful recipe for training and developing extraordinary investigators having trained 100’s of investigators who are now successfully performing investigations for the Federal government.  
  • Our training exceeds EEOC’s requirements as prescribed in Chapter 6 of its Management Directive-110. 
  • Don’t take our word for it.  Click here for testimonials from former students.

    Do you.offer job placement after the course?

  3. Anonymous says:

    We don’t offer job placement, but when we have had a need for investigators, we have entered subcontracting relationships with students who excelled in the course.

  4. Vee says:

    I am interested in taking the EEO certification course. But before I do, where can I verify that your company is recognized as a certified training facility?

  5. admin says:

    The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) doesn’t certify individual vendors who offer training certification. However, our 32-hour online training certification meets EEOC’s training requirements as outline in its Management Directive-110, Chapter 6. Many of the participants, who successfully completed the course, are now conducting EEO investigations for Federal agencies. We have received positive feedback from several vendors who have engaged our former students as subcontractors.

    Once registered, how long does one have to complete the course?
    Thank you

    We suggest that students complete the course within 90 days. Some complete it in a week, and others take 30 to 60 days.

    Is the course self-paced? I work a highly demanding job that I am looking to get out of, but financially I cannot do so until I can set up a new venue of employment, preferably with the EEOC. As a result, I do not have much in the way of spare time to myself.

    Hi Ryan,
    Yes, the course is completely self-paced. While we recommend the course be completed in 3 months, we know that it is often not possible so that can be extended. Please let us know if you have other questions.

    Annually. This is from EEOC’s MD-110, Chapter 6: “B. Standards for Continuing Investigator Training
    The continuing eight hours of investigator training every fiscal year is intended to keep EEO Investigators informed of developments in EEO practice, law, and guidance, as well as to enhance and develop investigatory skills. Agencies are encouraged to conduct a needs assessment to determine specific investigative staff training needs. The Commission anticipates that these eight hours of continuing investigator training will include segments on legal and policy updates, regulatory and statutory changes, and investigative skills development.”

  13. Vera says:

    Is this course pre-approved for HRCI or SHRM credits?

  14. admin says:

    Currently, it is not pre-approved for either.

  15. Ron Bell says:

    Do you need to have an approved EEOC application before taking the course?

  16. admin says:

    EEOC does not have an application for individuals to become certified. You can read more about the training requirements here:

  17. Danielle says:

    Once I am done with your course, does that mean I am certified? Or how do I get the certification?

  18. Aapril Cumming says:

    Do you offer the annual re-certification coursework or is that something that is solely available via the EEOC and how much does it cost to re-certify annually?
