This comprehensive 40-hour workshop will provide participants training and assistance in the proper recognition of bloodstain pattern evidence. This includes actual laboratory experimentation of blood flight characteristics as a result of motion and force. These experiments will be augmented with lecture material and case presentations for the ultimate purpose of reconstruction of the sequence of events which occurred at the scene of a crime. This is a hands-on workshop that will allow the participants to work individually and in small groups as they acquire the necessary knowledge and skills required of a bloodstain pattern analyst. The bloodstain evidence that will be analyzed will include that which is present at the crime scene, in a vehicle, on a victim and/or suspect’s clothing, or on discarded evidence such as knives, firearms and other weapons. This course satisfies the International Association for Identification’s 40-hour Basic Bloodstain Analysis Course for the purpose of the requirements for acquiring Bloodstain Pattern Certification Examination by the IAI, and for certification hours for the Crime Scene Certification Board
