PSP40416 - In-House Organisation Specific Certificate IV in Government Investigations

Private Course - Face to Face / Virtual Classroom Learning Pathway

Investigation Compliance & Enforcement Training Systems has delivered in house training to organisations in the public and private sector since 2008.

Investment in the ‘front end’ of the investigation process delivers immense long-term benefit. Effective and competently conducted investigations significantly improves the ability of decision-makers to implement appropriate outcomes following investigations, be they criminal, administrative or disciplinary actions or systemic improvements designed to prevent misconduct or maladministration occurring in the future.

Our course programs go well beyond programs provided by other providers in that our course programs are contextualised to the client-agency environment so that course participants have ownership over the course programs and clear application of course knowledge and skills to their regulatory and law enforcement environments.



Frequently Asked Questions

Which course should our employees do?

The Certificate IV in Government Investigations is aimed at an operational level. This qualification is the recommended course for operational investigators. The Diploma covers managerial aspects over operational skills. The Certificate IV in Government Investigations is not a prerequisite for the Diploma. Students wanting to enrol in the Diploma who have not completed the Certificate IV in Government Investigations qualification, ideally will have advanced knowledge of operational investigative practices.

What is an ‘in-house’ organisation specific program?

ICETS provide a service to contextualise certain assessments in the Certificate IV in Government Investigations course program to align to a client organisation regulatory scope, legislation and processes. This service generally costs $6,990 for a standard contextualisation process that takes approximately eight weeks. In-house programs do not need to be contextualised. ICETS can be engaged to deliver the standard Certificate IV in Government Investigation program to employees from one or more organisations in an arranged delivery strategy.

Can our employees RPL the course?

Yes, they can RPL one or all units of competency in a qualification on our scope. They may RPL up to three units of competency whilst being enrolled in a course, without incurring any additional fees. Application for a full RPL of the Certificate IV in Government Investigations qualification costs $2,325. Application for a full RPL of the Diploma of Government Investigations qualification costs $1,705.

What is the RPL process?

After we have received a request for RPL, ICETS will email a pack which is made up of two separate documents. The first document details the competency requirements for every unit in the course package. The second document is the RPL application form. The application form is to be completed by the applicant addressing the requirements detailed in the form including evidence of competency for the unit/s you are applying for. The application form along with all indexed evidence is emailed back to ICETS for evaluation. Payment for an RPL application does not guarantee the application will be successful. Applicants will have up to three attempts to prove competency.

How long do I have to finish the course?

From the commencement of the course, students have 12 months to complete the Certificate IV in Government Investigations and 24 months to complete the Diploma of Government Investigations. Enrolment extensions for either qualification cost $250 per student for three months.

Is there a Face to Face or Virtual Classroom program for the Diploma?

No, experience has shown that the volume of work required for the Diploma qualification does not suit an intensive classroom delivery pathway. The Diploma learning pathway is via full distance learning. ICETS recommends students aim to complete one unit of competency per month as a structured way of completing the qualification. To support the distance learning students ICETS have video tutorials for each unit of competency. Students can also schedule an online tutorial with their course facilitator if required.

How many hours does the course take?

According to the National Centre for Vocational Education Research (NCVER) the combined nominal hours for the units of competency in ICETS Certificate IV in Government Investigations qualification is 680 hours. For the Diploma of Government Investigations qualification, the combined nominal hours are 565 hours. However, the nominal hours required to complete the qualification will vary from student to student.

Can I get a discount?

For specific organisation training programs: Discounts are offered for programs with 10 or more enrolments in a single transaction.

Are the course fees subsidised?

No unfortunately we don’t have any government funding available as ICETS is a private Registered Training Organisation (RTO).

Do you offer payment plans?

ICETS do not generally offer payment plans for in-house programs. An in-house program is secured, and contextualisation commences on payment of a 50% deposit. The balance of the invoice is due on the start date of the course delivery or as arranged with ICETS.

What options are available to pay the contextualisation / course fee?

We have several payment options available to choose from once the organisation has accepted the quote. Options available are electronic funds transfer and debit or credit card. ICETS uses the secure EZYPAY payment portal. Full distance learning students must pay the full course fee before access to courseware will be provided.

What should I do if I want to discuss an in-house program?

Complete the Expression of Interest form and an ICETS representative will contact you to arrange a consultation to discuss your organisation’s training need.
