The Forensic Criminalistics Board Certification Preparation Course is a 16 module on-demand online course taught by professionals in the field that are certified in their area of study. The courses are taught by experienced criminalists with a collective practical perspective on forensic materials/trace analysis, drug chemistry, and serology/forensic biology. The course is designed for forensic criminalists who are preparing to take a board certification exam in comprehensive criminalistics, drug analysis or molecular biology or for those who want a practical comprehensive overview of the field of criminalistics.

Each module consists of lectures focusing on all areas of the study curriculum recommended by criminalistics certification boards. The course is split into two 8 module sections. The first 8 modules cover general forensic subject areas outside of the focused track (emphasis) including: Crime Scene Reconstruction, Firearms and Tool Marks, Fire Debris and Explosives, Photography, Trace Evidence, Safety, Ethics, Quality Assurance, Forensic Standards and Accreditation, Drug Analysis, Molecular Biology and DNA, and areas of criminal and civil law.

The final 8 modules focus on the specific topic, Drug Chemistry, and goes into a greater depth of focus on the history, methodology, instrumentation, analysis, interpretation, and quality assurance/control in the specific fields. The on-demand format allows you to learn and study when it is convenient for you, and allows you to focus on topics you wish to review and focus on. Each module includes a graded multiple-choice practice quiz based on all lecture content. A final multiple-choice practice exam is provided at the end of the course.
