Our 5 day ( 40 hours ) Bloodstain Pattern Analysis on Textile Course is designed to give the participants 40 hours of lectures, practical’s (experiments and mock scenes) to increase knowledge and skills on blood stain analysis on textile.
Examination of bloodstained clothing is a common request of the bloodstain pattern analyst. The analysis of this examination can potentially provide information regarding the movements and activities of the wearer during a bloodshed event and may confirm or refute testimonies for the presence of blood stain pattern on his or her clothing. To analyse these bloodstains correctly the analyst has to understand the scientific fundamentals involved in blood stain formation and its final appearance on textile.
This course is designed for all levels of law enforcement personnel, especially those who search for blood at scenes as well as on articles of physical evidence, investigators, crime scene personnel, attorneys, prosecutors, judges, medico legal investigators and participants studying forensics science and/or criminal justice.
