Northwestern crime scene and forensics classes are hands-on. Classs take place in a specially prepared lab. Participants have a chance to experiment with new tools and approaches. Graduates can apply their credits toward certification by the IAI and the IABPA.
Crime Scene Technology Series
Described by former students as "the most comprehensive course of its kind" the crime scene series gives participants a thorough grounding in the latest techniques of evidence development and enhancement. View upcoming classes.
Our courses meet membership requirements set by the International Association of Bloodstain Pattern Analysts and by the International Association for Identification. See individual class descriptions for details.
"Northwestern does it right. The depth that the forensic courses go into is not the norm. We're able to replicate a crime scene in the lab and try out processes we wouldn't have a chance to try out elsewhere."—Deputy Sheirff J. Yanecek, Lake County (IL) Sheriff's Office
