CII Community Training Initiative

The primary purpose of the initiative is to create a network of focal points among the CII community for identifying, sharing, conducting, and developing general and specialist training courses and programs for investigators, analysts and managers. 53 organizations within the CII family nominated a Focal Point from their investigative or ethics offices to be their point of contact for this great and long-awaited CII initiative. We have finally established the network!
