If you are encountering an issue of forensic science for the first time or if you’re looking for an in-depth training on a specific topic, online forensic trainings are a great way to access the knowledge of national experts from the comfort of your home or office.
I’ve compiled over 100 of these free trainings and put them in the training section the IDS Forensics website. Topics include crime scene investigation, DNA evidence, child abuse, toxicology, working with experts, and many more. Some of the training organizations require you to register before you take the training, but it just takes a few minutes to sign up.
These online trainings are sponsored by the National Institute of Justice, the National Clearinghouse for Science, Technology & the Law, the Women’s Information Network and local organizations – RTI International, and the UNC School of Government. Check them out!
