ABC Certification Examination Review Course at Bay Path University

Saturday, September 12, 2015

Bay Path University

 This workshop involves lectures and discussion in preparation for the American Board of Criminalistics (ABC) certification examinations.  The workshop is directed at forensic practitioners to assist them in focusing their study for certification examinations in Comprehensive Criminalistics and in the following specialty disciplines: Molecular Biology, Drug Chemistry, Fire Debris Analysis, Trace Evidence (Hairs & Fibers), and Trace Evidence (Paints & Polymers).

 The morning will focus on ABC exam preparation strategies including timeline, study guides, resources, and discussion of the general exam categories across all specialties (legal, quality, common KSA's).  The afternoon will consist of breakout sessions into each discipline for more in-depth information using the ABC study guides. The afternoon will also include a “mock examination” for the participants to test their current knowledge and identify weak areas for further study.

 At least 3 registrants for each section will need to be registered in order for a breakout session to be offered.
