Hearing Skills and Decision Writing courses in 2014:
Both courses very well done and very useful. I took these courses to refresh my information on the administrative justice community as I had been in a different role for 18 years, and I felt I needed an update in protocols and procedures for writing decisions, and to benefit from the knowledge of those around me to make sure my decisions are as sound as possible. Being able to connect with BCCAT was very important to me and is very important for everyone in this community. People taking on these roles are not necessarily aware of what the role requires when first appointed. These courses should be a requirement for all BRDO appointees.
Administrative Justice for Decision Makers:
This was a great course. I learned both the principles of administrative justice and the practical skills of writing decisions and conducting a hearing. The instructors were very knowledgeable and created a comfortable learning environment. I would recommend this course to anyone working in administrative justice.
