The course includes electronic versions of the manual and all of the presentations. You can download them and print all materials.
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.
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?
We recommend completion within 3 months, but if you require additional time, we will work with you. The course is always available online.
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.
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.
HOW OFTEN IS RENEWAL OF CERTIFICATION REQUIRED?
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.”
Is this an actual online course or do you just send us the course materials? Also, is there a course instructor we can talk to during the class who grades our assignments?
Great questions. The course is online, and you can download all course materials. An instructor is available to answer any questions, and the instructor reviews all assignments. You’ll get feedback on all assignments.
In the midst of COVID19, is online training suspended or is it continuing? Thank you.
COVID19 has not impacted the online course. It is available 24/7 and is self-paced. Instructors will review all assignments, provide feedback and are available for questions.
Is this an actual certification course? Is the certification the same as the EEOC program? Would I be able time use a certification designation after successful completion of this course?
Yes, upon successful completion of the course, you will receive a certification that will meet EEOC’s 32-hour certification requirement as outlined in EEOC’s Management Directive 110 (MD-110). Our course meets the training requirements outlined in Chapter 6.
Where can I find more detailed information about the course curriculum and materials provided?

Doing research of this career path states you have to have a certain educational background to take course or to be able to get into career field. I only have 2 years of working in a law firm at a front desk and doing research for new clients and making files. I don’t want to pay for the course and find it hard to land a position, I’m very interested in course. Any suggestion?
I would like to know this as well.
