WZ currently conducts over 360 seminars a year. Since 1982, WZ has conducted thousands of seminars and educated hundreds of thousands of professional investigators. WZ has developed customized basic and advanced seminars for law enforcement agencies, federal agencies, military units, human resource professionals and private sector investigators. The principles and techniques taught by WZ are accepted world wide. WZ opened an office in The United Kingdom in 2009 and has conducted seminars across Canada, Europe, Mexico, South America, Africa and Asia.
WZ has developed distant learning opportunities including webinars and the WZ Campus to meet the diverse learning needs and challenges that investigators face in the 21st century. WZ also offers support materials to augment our classroom instruction including an Audio CD, an interactive CD-ROM and the second edition of our text book; Practical Aspects of Interview and Interrogation.
At WZ our commitment to our partners does not end at the completion of the seminar. Our instructors make themselves available to consult with seminar attendees on investigations, strategies, training opportunities and their career development.
