IAI Crime Scene Certification Preparation CCSI, CCSA & CSCSA

This course will help better prepare an individual who is taking the IAI Certification Test by providing and reviewing hundreds of sample questions pertaining to crime scene examination and analyzing. The number one reason why most crime scene investigations fail is because of inadequate crime scene processing. Working a crime scene, whether minor or major, is a process that involves a wide range of skills. This course was also developed as a refresher workshop for crime scene officers, or for the new officer with limited exposure and experience in crime scene processing. The detection, collection, documentation and preservation of physical evidence are key elements involved in every crime scene.

Tests are administered on the final day of the course to those who have submitted applications and received prior approval from the IAI. When submitting applications, please allow at least 60 days for processing. More information on the application and submittal can be found the IAI’s website: www.theiai.org

It is highly recommended that all attendees read the required text books prior to the course and bring the books to the course.
