IAJ Training Programs

Whether training participants are experienced or new to the job, they will benefit from one of IAJ's in-depth training programs. IAJ has a variety of highly qualified and experienced trainers who develop customized programs for attorney and non-attorney hearing officers, case presenters, investigators, expert witnesses, and other professionals.

Innovative Training Model

Whether participants are experienced or new to the job, they will benefit from one of IAJ's in-depth training programs. Each program can be customized to meet your unique training needs. Our training staff consists of highly qualified professionals with extensive experience in administrative law. One frequently requested component of IAJ's training programs is the use of filmed mock hearing exercises where the subject matter taught is reinforced. As part of these exercises, your hearing officers will conduct simulated hearings in a realistic setting. Portions of the recording are replayed, giving your staff the opportunity to see themselves as others do, and to discuss the issues and problems that arise during actual hearings.

Representative Courses

Each training program is structured in a progressive, logical sequence. Although the subject matter is tailored to your organization's needs, topics typically include:

  • Role of the Adjudicator
  • Elements of Due Process
  • Gathering and Weighing Evidence
  • Ruling on Objections
  • Role of the Attorney
  • Use of Interpreters
  • Receiving Confidential Information
  • Effective Questioning Techniques
  • Use of Expert Witnesses
  • Decision Writing
