Coroners Court Training Course

  • 5 CPD Hours Apex Building, Blackthorn Road Sandyford Business District D18 (map)

Presenting evidence at an inquest can be a very daunting and stressful experience. Some feel they themselves are on trial rather than assisting the coroner. Knowledge of the witness’s specialist area of work may be tested and technical information need to be portrayed in a simple and concise manner. 

This training course is designed to ensure delegates have the knowledge to give a truthful, confident and coherent account at a coroner’s court inquest.  Delegates will undergo realistic questioning by an experienced tutor.
After this one-day course, you will leave with the skills to attend and present information at a coroner’s court inquest with renewed confidence and knowledge. You also receive our full tutorial pack which will allow you to refer back to your course content after the course is finished, enabling you to continue to access key points and refresher topics as you need them. And you receive 5 structured CPD points towards your professional education requirements.
