Effective Strategies for Staff Inspections   

This course will provide comprehensive instruction on the staff inspection process. The value of these organizational elements will ensure your operational efficiency, effectiveness, and readiness of your organization. You will learn how to establish a staff inspections component within your agency and methods of selecting inspectors/assessors.
