Expert Witness Preparation and Testimony Training
From LEVA.org - Expert Witness Preparation and Testimony (Nov. 15-17): This 24 hour seminar is designed to teach you what to expect in court, what your role is and how to make the most out of testifying. Having important information to give is not enough. You must also be able to effectively communicate that evidence to the jury, lawyers and judge. Practical in format, this seminar will help you to become an effective witness and a true contributor to the administration of justice. Satisfies LEVA Certified Forensic Video Analyst (CFVA) requirement.
Most agencies will send you to the local DA's testimony prep course. Sitting in mine, I couldn't help but think how much more I could have gotten out of it if it was specific to my discipline. That's what's great about LEVA's offering ... it is specific to our discipline. This helps you get the most in-depth training possible.
If you are planning to go to the LEVA conference, this is a "must attend" module.
