The Core Essentials of Crime Scene Investigation (CECSI) is a three-week in-residence course that takes place in Alcoa, TN with housing provided in the heart of West Knoxville. During the course, participants will receive 40 hours of Crime Scene Photography training instructed by John Williams and Kerri McClary, 40 hours of Bloodstain Pattern Analysis training instructed by Paul Kish and 40 hours of Shooting Incident Reconstruction training instructed by Jim Molinaro and Howie Ryan. In only three weeks, participants will learn essential crime scene investigation techniques from top-tier instructors at a fraction of the time and cost of other programs.
Who can make this available?
The three-week, in-residence, CECSI is possible because of The Forensic Training Foundation's (FTF) network of nationally recognized forensic instructors and relationships with Corporate Quarters Inc, Alcoa Police Department, Alcoa Fire Department and Alcoa City School. As a non profit organization, FTF is able to join forces with these other stakeholders to create an incredibly relevant, cost effective way for forensic practitioners to receive the best training available from the best instructors available. Anywhere.
In an effort to make the CECSI course as cost effective as possible for participants, The Forensic Training Foundation (FTF) has arranged for each participant to share a fully furnished, luxury, two bedroom, two bathroom apartment in a gated apartment community with one other course participant. Located in West Knoxville, housing is less than 20 minutes from the training venues and close to Turkey Creek offering plenty of restaurants and entertainment options for when class is over each day. The CECSI course fee INCLUDES this housing. Please contact FTF for a reduced fee if you live within 30 miles and plan to commute.
