The International Association for Identification (IAI) Bloodstain Pattern Certification Test will be available at the conference (you must apply for the test 30 days prior to the conference).


This year's conference will offer an 'open' BPA room with blood and various target surfaces for participants to recreate cases and share them with other attendees to get opinions and insight. If you have a case or project that may benefit from other professional input and insight, please bring a summary.  If additional materials or tools are necessary, please contact Rich Tewes ahead of time to try and arrange for them to be available. The room will be run in a workshop block for 4 hours and may be repeated if demand is there.
