When an investigator of an allegation, be it criminal or civil, faces the task at hand, it is done so with the hope of success.
Success will be the discovery of truth whether it imprisons, frees, fines, vindicates or any other consequence; it is the discovery of truth, itself, which is the emotional satisfaction to the investigator.
An "A to Z" success is one in which an allegation is made, statements are written, analyzed, truth discerned, and a confession (or admission) is obtained.
This is the ultimate conclusion for the studious investigator.
The Advanced Course offered has as a prerequisite, a solid background in analysis by formal training. Analysts who, for example, have successfully completed the SCAN course, along with subsequent practice and implementation, come into advanced work with a solid background; a sturdy foundation of which to build and enter into entirely new realms of analysis.
One such success is the psychological profile that emerges from a statement that is so clear that it allows the investigator to know the strategy and even detailed tactics of which to employ in the interview, to bring the case to competition.
When such an analyst has obtain a confession, the opportunity for growth has just arrived: he or she may now see the "unity" between investigator and subject, who has "made friends" and "fulfilled the pronoun 'we'" by telling the truth and can have the subject review the analysis, point by point.
This is done, not with the psychological profile, but the actual event analysis, point by point. The analyst does not show the subject the work, instead, with work in hand, reviews the events, allowing, in particular, the subject to address the missing information.
Remember: most deception is via missing information, leaving behind, even in deceptive statements, a large volume of truth and reliable information.
Recall the CNN analyst who made everyone laugh when he said, "I can tell when Casey Anthony is lying; her lips are moving!"
It is the polar opposite of sound work.
Recently, another "A to Z" success was reported, along with further confirmation of a detailed psychological profile submitted where intimates of the subject reported the accuracy, particularly of the personality traits, history and the event.
In another, Human Resources dodged a 'ticking time bomb' of an anti-social charmer who's demeanor, personality and good looks belied the lies that he was hiding beneath the surface.

The Advanced Course is open to those who have completed the Statement Analysis course, or an equivalent, and can show proficiency in basic analysis.
Successful completion leads to certification only after a final thesis statement is submitted, and given favorable review by three professional analysts.
By the time the analyst reaches this level, his work is likely known for its accuracy.
