About the course

This course will provide basic instruction on the principle forensic science disciplines at the State Crime Laboratory. Forensic scientists from the Laboratory will describe the processes, procedures, and instruments they use to perform forensic testing. Additionally, instruction will be provided on the Laboratory’s new website, Forensic Advantage Program, and on the new case management system that has been implemented to improve turnaround times. As part of the 2013 Appropriations Act, the legislature mandated that district attorneys received training on these topics. The State Crime Laboratory is now offering to make the same instruction available to the defense bar.
