Position Designation (PD)

Position designation assesses duties and responsibilities of a position to determine the potential damage resulting from the misconduct of an individual occupying the position.

This half-day training course is intended for individuals involved in assessing risk and sensitivity to determine the appropriate investigative requirements of the position.
