Affordable, anytime training for essential CSI skills
Crime scene investigators, agencies and those interested in forensic skills across the country can now purchase Introduction to Crime Scene Investigation, a 16-hour online course. The convenient and highly-rated course provides a consistent training base to get new investigators up and running quickly.
Trainees get access to the course for just $129 and have up to 60 days to complete their study. Intro to Crime Scene Investigation includes nine modules covering crime scene management, evidence collection and handling, and documentation. In addition, students also take a four-module Introduction to Photography Course, one of the most important tools in the investigator’s skill set.
To date, 450 investigators have completed the course, which has received remarkably positive feedback with more than 99% responding that they have been able to use their new skills and knowledge immediately. Offering the course on a broader scale will allow more investigators to have this training option―especially now that many agencies have had to cut training and travel budgets significantly.
The training was developed according to guidelines recommended by the Technical Working Group on Crime Scene Investigation (TWGCSI), considered a benchmark for CSI skills. The course requires no pre-screening and successful participants receive a certificate of completion.
