Sirchie Sponsored Fingerprint Classes

Fingerprint identification science remains the backbone of law enforcement criminal record and case identification. Whether you are interested in becoming a fingerprint technician, a latent print examiner seeking advanced training, or an AFIS operator desiring to improve your knowledge and skill set, Sirchie has a fingerprint class to meet your needs.


Introduction to the Science of Fingerprints

The science of fingerprint identification is based on the uniqueness and permanence of friction ridge structures. Therefore, the ability of the technician to accurately classify and identify fingerprint patterns is essential. The student will learn fundamental techniques of fingerprint pattern interpretation and how this information is used to accurately classify, compare, and identify fingerprints.

Note: this course is not a latent print comparison class and uses inked fingerprints. This training is vital for any individual who wishes to pursue a career as a fingerprint examiner and is a prerequisite for enrollment in the Latent Fingerprint classes.


Basic Latent Fingerprint Comparison

Combining lecture and latent print practical exercises, the emphasis in this course is placed on print orientation to improve each student’s comparison skills. Exercises are designed to provide the student with real life case work training experience.

Minimum Requirement: Each student must have attended and completed a Basic Fingerprint Comparison Course to be accepted in this course.


Advanced Latent Ridgeology

Combining lecture and latent print practical exercises, emphasis is placed on comparison techniques for comparing difficult and complex latent finger and palm prints. Exercises are designed to provide the student with real life case work training experience.

Minimum Requirement: Each student must have attended and completed a Basic Latent Fingerprint Comparison Course to be accepted in this course.


Advanced Latent Palm Print Comparison

Many students have expressed the difficulty in comparing latent palm prints. This course was developed to overcome these difficulties through combining lecture and latent print practical exercises, simulating routine case work.

Minimum Requirement: Each student must have attended and completed a Basic Latent Fingerprint Comparison Course to be accepted in this course.


Mastering the “Comparison Phase” of the IAI Latent Certification Exam

Examiners who are preparing to take the Latent Print Certification exam are often concerned with the comparison phase of the exam. Their concerns include running out of time and not completing the necessary 12 identifications in the allotted 8 hours. This class is offered to help latent examiners overcome this fear.

Emphasis is placed on recognizing valuable search clues when comparing latent finger and palm prints.

Valuable tips are shared to help improve time management skills during the exam. Numerous timed exercises containing latent prints similar in difficulty to the IAI exam are administered and evaluated.

Additional information is provided to aid students during the pattern recognition and written portions of the exam.

Minimum Requirements: Each student must have at least two years of Latent print experience to be accepted in this course.


Bloodstain Pattern Documentation Course

Throughout the United States and certainly in smaller departments, the crime scene technician faces the complexities of homicide scenes without the proper support or training. Like all forensic disciplines, Bloodstain Pattern Analysis is only useful if the patterns are captured and sampled properly. Students of our other popular Crime Scene Technology and fingerprint classes have requested this training; therefore, SIRCHIE, in conjunction with BEVEL, GARDNER & ASSOCIATES INC., is pleased to offer this bloodstain analysis curriculum.

This 4-day, hands-on course is intended for crime scene investigators/ technicians— introducing the student to the nature and value of bloodstain pattern evidence; teaching the student to recognize basic pattern types and demonstrating through practical exercise the Roadmapping method of documenting bloodstain pat tern evidence.

The student will leave the course with:

• the ability to recognize basic bloodstain pattern types
• the knowledge of a proven method of documenting bloodstains for future analysis.



  • Introduction and Registration

Crime Scene Photography – Phase 1 Course

Crime scene photography remains one of the most important aspects of crime scene and criminal investigation. Notes and sketches document Orly items of evidence and interest that the investigator recognizes and records.

However, proper use of a camera can capture everything of significance AT a crime scene that is contained in the viewfinder. This permanent recording can prove invaluable days, months, and even years after the crime scene has been released by law enforcement. Surveys of those charged with documenting crime scenes continually reveal the lack of basic skills In operating a digital camera and thus obtaining relevant photographs suitable for presentation in courtroom proceedings. This 3-day course is designed for all personnel in the judicial process who are charged with taking crime scene photographs and/or presenting the images in judicial and administrative proceedings. The course is taught with classroom lecture on photography concepts followed by hands-on exercises. Nikon® equipment (supplied by Penn Camera) common to many CSI units will be utilized. Note: Students should bring a new, unused 2 gig or larger USB “stick” Drive if they would like to keep the images they expose turing training.


The student will leave the course with:

• A high-level of understanding of digital cameras
• Techniques for capturing quality images under various conditions
