Crime Scene Investigation Basics Certificate
This Certificate program uses computer simulation software (included) and traditional educational methods to provide an understanding of the scientific theory as well as the actual practices and techniques used to process a crime scene.
The student will learn how crime scene professionals protect themselves and preserve evidence at a crime scene. They will also learn techniques law enforcement professionals execute at the scene of a crime. The program describes the many types of evidence and how evidence is collected and secured before being processed by a crime lab.
Students will use a computer-based simulation to process two virtual crime scenes. The software will evaluate how accurately and effectively the student processed the scenes of the crimes. The CSI LabSim manual also includes supplemental DVD-based lectures.
Students are required to have Internet access and a Windows® based PC, Pentium® III operating Windows® XP or newer.
