Course Information

This is a very science-heavy course compressed into eight hours of technical knowledge that will serve to renew your N.I.D.S. Crime and Trauma Certification and qualifies for 8 CEU's from the IICRC and ABRA.  (It also incorporates the OSHA Bloodborne Pathogen Course so you don't have to take that separately).  YOU HAVE 30 DAYS TO COMPLETE THE COURSE FROM THE TIME YOU REGISTER.  You can stop the course and re-open it as needed. You can review each chapter or portion of each chapter as many times as needed until you feel you understand the material. There are quizzes at the end of each chapter. Once you reach the end of the course, you cannot go back. Just like an in-person course, when it's over....it's over. There is no book, cheat sheet or reference to accompany this course, so it's imperative that you take lots of notes. You can pause slides to give you time to write. If you have questions, I am here to answer, weekdays 10am to 5pm eastern time.
