This 40-hour course teaches the use of scientific methods, evidence analysis and deductive reasoning to determine the sequence of events in a reconstructed crime scene. Students will also learn how to prepare reports and testify. Participants will be provided hands-on instruction on the latest forensic investigative tools, including drones and 3D scanners. Practical exercises at HFSC’s Crime Scene House will encourage participants to test and experiment to support their findings.
After completing the class, students will possess greater confidence in their ability to properly collect data and formulate hypotheses regarding a probable course of events at a crime scene.
