Death Investigation for Private Investigators
Associates in Forensic Investigations, LLC, are the developers of the Death Investigation for Private Investigators homestudy course, approved in several states for continuing education. This course has previously available only for continuing education through PI Education. In partnership with PI Education, our agency is now making the course directly available for those that do not need the continuing education credits and have an interest in learning more about death and injury causation investigations. Those persons interested in death investigation and injury causation through homestudy, are encouraged to visit www.MedicolegalDeathInvestigations.com for more details - including how investigators can mitigate the course cost and earn higher fees.
This death investigation course is a basic introduction into the concepts of the official investigation of death and injury causation. This course is designed to provide the investigator currently working in, or interested in working in, the death and personal injury investigation fields the knowledge and insight to informatively and intelligently conduct a criminal defense or civil investigation in which serious bodily injury or death is the subject matter of the litigation.
This is available as a partnership program at a discounted rate to education providers. Co-branding with revenue sharing is also available.
Here is what one colleague recently said about our Death Investigation for Private Investigators homestudy course:
"I just finished your medicolegal death investigations for private investigators course. I must admit it was one of the best written courses I have taken in a long time. Not sure what I got on the test but I did get a certificate of completion. I truly enjoyed the content and managed to learn quite a bit as well. As far as the usefulness of the information I have already found two of my current cases that parts of the course provided me additional information as well as different routes of investigation that I may not have thought of or been aware of. Please accept my thanks and appreciation for your course. Thanks" (Curtis Burkett - Curtis Burkett & Associates Investigations)
