CRIME SCENE professional

I wanted to let you know that I passed my initial CSI training and I have already used the BPA knowledge that I gained on your training course on a job!


I used BPA to help select stains for swabbing at a burglary scene and we have just had a match confirmation from the National DNA Database. 


The practical demonstration really added to my understanding of the background information covered in the lectures. 

It is the most in-depth introductory training I have ever had in BPA. Thank you.


We choose to include this BPA course in our CSI training programme because it provides students with a level of knowledge that they wouldn't usually get.


It is relevant to their roles and, rather than make them experts in BPA, it highlights what BPA can bring to an investigation and helps them make the right choices when calling in experts to a scene.


I was fortunate to attend this training course as part of my internship with the UK Police. 

I learned so much and I will be recommending this course to my colleagues back home.
