The National Center for Forensic Science provides professional training in the areas of fire debris and explosives. All courses are developed and taught by subject matter experts. The courses are offered through the University of Central Florida’s Continuing Education, which provides continuing education credits for completion of the course work. Most of the courses are offered as WEB based instruction to lower the cost of training. WEB based instruction provides training without the cost of travel and time lost from the laboratory. WEB based courses are asynchronous, meaning students can access the information at a time most convenient for them. Instructors and students interact with one another through discussion groups. The courses incorporate videos and animation along with text to assist the student in learning the concepts introduced in the lesson.
