ONLINE - The Centre for Investigative Journalism organizes different regular training courses on a wide range of investigative skills. All these courses are taught by working investigative journalists and experts in their field.
Each course is designed to teach participants both theory and practice through real-world examples and hands-on exercises. These courses build in time for responsive guidance from the trainers that can be shaped around the participants’ own projects and areas of interest.
CIJ courses are open to all, but you will have to pay booking fees on a sliding scale to ensure that larger newsrooms subsidise places for freelancers and small organisations.
If the course you’re interested in is already sold out or not yet showing on our schedule, register your interest on the determined seminar, and CIJ will inform you as soon as places become available. Check out the list of these courses:
