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.

As always the International Association for Identification Crime Scene Certification Board will work with the host and hosting facility to facilitate a proctor being present for the last day of class in order for the students to sit for the examination.
