Introductory Fire Debris Analysis for the Forensic Chemist Course

The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) will be offering two fire debris training courses for state and local government laboratory analysts. Introductory Fire Debris Analysis for the Forensic Chemist is a four-day course designed for analysts in the early stages of fire debris training or with less than a year experience in conducting fire debris analysis casework. Advanced Fire Debris Analysis for the Forensic Chemist is a course designed for analysts with more than three years of experience in conducting fire debris case-work. These tuition-free courses will be offered on alternating years at the ATF Forensic Science Laboratory – Washington in Beltsville, Maryland.

 

Introductory Fire Debris Analysis for the Forensic Chemist covers the basic theory and concepts analysts need to understand in order to help them gain initial competency from their agency. Classroom learning will be enhanced with hands-on exercises and small group assignments.

 

Advanced Fire Debris Analysis for the Forensic Chemist expands upon the topics covered in the Introductory course; provides additional analytical tools and considerations for fire debris analysis; and introduces concepts in fire science.
