It will assist participants to appreciate fair hearing principles; refresh the guidelines for admitting evidence; recognize issues that arise in hearings; conduct hearings more effectively, and gain confidence in conducting hearings within their tribunal context. The course will also assist administrators or advocates in providing support for the hearing panels and participating in hearings.
