Forensic professionals are frequently in contact with blood and other bodily fluids that pose a risk of exposure to bloodborne pathogens. Since duties involve potential occupational exposure, forensic professionals are covered by the Bloodborne Pathogen Standard written by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration. Part of this standard (OSHA 29 CFR 1910.1030) is required annual training. This training course is designed to be in compliance with the training requirements of the standard. One of the requirements of the annual training is that there be an open forum for questions and answers. To meet this requirement, a discussion board will be available for open communication. While this course is geared toward forensic professionals, anyone who has to take bloodborne pathogen training can take this course as well.

While many people believe that bloodstain pattern analysis is a new discipline within the forensic science field, the examination of blood at violent crimes has been around for decades. The goal of this online course is to provide the student with a basic, introductory overview of bloodstain pattern analysis. Students will gain an introductory understanding to the presumptive tests used for blood, understanding basic patterns, and determining the area of origin of a bloodstain. Also, the documentation of bloodstains will be discussed The student will learn the background information and techniques necessary in performing analyses, but this will in no way replace the physical practice required when dealing with actual casework.

This course has been developed as an introduction to the principles underlying the science of fingerprints. Students will obtain a general understanding of the methodology involved and a foundation to begin comparing all friction ridge skin. It will provide you with a basic, introductory overview of all friction ridge skin, including fingerprints, palm prints, and foot prints. You will learn classification and basic processing and development techniques, but this will in no way replace the physical practice required when dealing with actual casework. These units are designed to be an educational introduction to the science of fingerprints. Naturally, more education and training is required to be considered an expert latent fingerprint examiner.

Overview This course serves as an orientation and overview to hair examination as it relates to DNA analysis. The materials in the course have been gathered to assist the student in learning the preliminaries of forensic hair examination and are in no way meant to be a complete hair course. Objectives Upon completion of this course, the student will be able to: State the value of microscopic hair examinations. Determine whether hairs are most likely suitable for nuclear or mitochondrial DNA analysis. State how hair grows and identify the growth phases. Discuss the value and limitations of animal hairs in the forensic context. Describe the methodology, experience, and factors of the evidence and examiner in relation to admissibility of hair evidence. Course Structure and Schedule This is a non-credit course offering 5.8 ILUs. (http://elearn.wvu.edu/cpe/ILUOverview.pdf). Average completion time for the course is 28 hours. A certificate of completion will be issued to students successfully meeting course requirements. Table of Contents Unit 1: Why Conduct Hair Exams?

A printable version of the course content is available in PDF format in the course library for future reference. Course readings are also available in PDF format. Frequently Asked Questions Will I be ready for casework after completing the course? Answer: No. This course is an excellent starting point for more specialized training and practice in the discipline of hair examination. It is also beneficial to DNA Analysis to understand the basic principles of hair examination. Can I look at the material while taking the quiz? Answer: Yes, the quiz will open in a new window so you can review the course content information. How do I know that I have successfully completed all assignments? Answer: You may follow your progress by clicking on 'My Grades' in the left toolbar. If something does not have a grade or does not meet the 80% minimum standard, it must be completed. Computer Requirements Mozilla Firefox; Adobe Acrobat Reader; Quicktime; Adobe Flash Player; Java. There are free software plug-ins available in the Getting Started area of the course. Basic computer skills required (i.e. turning on your computer, navigating to websites, etc.). The course is user-friendly but support is available if needed. Course Reviews 'WVU's class titled, 'Hair Evaluation for DNA Analysis' gave me a fundamental and essential understanding of hairs and trace evidence for my career. Before this class I had no prior education of forensics and this was perfect in terms of depth and overview for beginners. Having it online was a plus as well, it was nice to be able to have the ability to go at your own pace. I would suggest this class for anyone interested in getting a basic understanding of forensic hair evaluation.'

Course Reviews 'WVU's class titled, 'Hair Evaluation for DNA Analysis' gave me a fundamental and essential understanding of hairs and trace evidence for my career. Before this class I had no prior education of forensics and this was perfect in terms of depth and overview for beginners. Having it online was a plus as well, it was nice to be able to have the ability to go at your own pace. I would suggest this class for anyone interested in getting a basic understanding of forensic hair evaluation.'

The materials in the course have been gathered to assist the student in learning the preliminaries of forensic hair examination and are in no way meant to be a complete hair course. Objectives Upon completion of this course, the student will be able to: State the value of microscopic hair examinations. Determine whether hairs are most likely suitable for nuclear or mitochondrial DNA analysis. State how hair grows and identify the growth phases. Discuss the value and limitations of animal hairs in the forensic context. Describe the methodology, experience, and factors of the evidence and examiner in relation to admissibility of hair evidence. Course Structure and Schedule This is a non-credit course offering 5.8 ILUs. (http://elearn.wvu.edu/cpe/ILUOverview.pdf). Average completion time for the course is 28 hours. A certificate of completion will be issued to students successfully meeting course requirements. Table of Contents Unit 1: Why Conduct Hair Exams?

Upon completion of the courses I emailed both Kelly Ayers and Samantha Neal to thank them for their enthusiasm, insight, and comprehensive coverage of the subject matter. In most areas of Law Enforcement a person with my years of service (30 years) is considered a 'dinosaur or relic' and past the point of being interested or teachable in most if not all matters concerning the various aspects of Law Enforcement. While this belief has certainly been true with me as of late, I feel I owe a debt of gratitude to both Kelly Ayers and Samantha Neal as well as to WVU for providing courses related to my current assignment and for re-kindling my interest. I found both courses informative and challenging, and I believe that I took away valuable information that will be of use to me as I continue on the path that I started on three decades ago. While participating in both courses I realized that for the first time in 2-4 years that I will miss my job when I'm forced to retire in a little over 15 months. I again want to thank all involved for reaffirming that the career choice I made so many years ago, was the right one.
