The Introduction to Forensic and Criminal Investigation professional certificate course will immerse you in the law enforcement and forensic investigative processes using state-of-the-art technology, giving you valuable practical insight into real-life criminal investigations.
This short introductory course consists of four modules that build off one another, taking you through the entirety of crime scene investigation in a logical and intelligible sequence. Beginning at the point of criminal activity and the scene of the crime, the course will guide you through the investigative process of suspect identification, arrest, interview, and providing expert witness testimony in court. Through the use of an immersive learning environment, you will be able to translate these theoretical principles to a range of real-world scenarios, giving you keen insight into the practical underpinnings of the investigative process. From this virtual world you will gain an awareness of the natural progress of criminal investigation, including the steps and communication strategies involved in each phase.
