Course Objectives
Course Overview:
10:00AM-Noon Eastern
In today’s Environment and the introduction of the new NFPA®921 2021 edition it is necessary to understand the changes that have been made in this new edition.
This is the most changed document since its introduction in 1992, there are many keywords they have changed or been added. These changes need to be considered when preparing your report. Remember your report will likely be reviewed and evaluated by others before depositions, grand juries, or trials take place.
The intent of this webinar is to share valuable information with the attendee’s involving some considerations you may want to include into your report, along with references from the current edition you would want to include.
After spending more than 80 hours dissecting the document, Tim will be referencing important areas of the document including keywords you may want to consider when writing an expert report.
It is imperative that the investigator stay up with the constantly evolving changes that have occurred during this revision process.
As an expert, you are expected to be able to communicate your findings to those not involved in the investigation in a concise, understating format for all to understand, including the prosecutor, ADA, insurance professionals, the jury and even the judge.
You will be evaluated and graded on your testimony and report in these cases.
Should this case go to trial, deposition, grand jury, or civil trials, there have been to many rulings in the recent past about why an investigator did not do a particular thing in the investigation, or why he/she did not explain it in his/her expert report.
