Advanced Fabrics Bloodstain Pattern Analysis Course:
We are especially proud to present to you the unique Fabric Course. Instructors Dr. Mark Reynolds and Mr. Ted Silenieks are coming over from the 8th till 14th of October 2018 from Australia to our Loci Forensics Training Institute in the Netherlands.
This course is designed primarily for practitioners who routinely examine bloodstained fabrics and other textiles and are required to assess, interpret and report on bloodstain patterns as part of those examinations. The course is delivered through a combination of “face to face” instruction and self-directed learning. A minimum 80 hours of structured learning activities is required, inclusive of the 40 hour “face to face” residential component.
The course will review the underpinning principles of BPA, and apply these principles to the analysis and interpretation of bloodstains on fabrics and other textiles. When examining clothing and other fabrics, the practitioner must be mindful of influences such as the fabric type, texture, treatments and the orientation of clothing, all of which may affect the appearance of bloodstains at the time the blood was deposited. The primary focus of the course is to develop those skills required for the examination of bloodstain patterns found on clothing items, including the use of microscopy to discriminate between spatter and transfer bloodstains.
