A City College’s Professional Diploma Course is a focused, practical programme designed and delivered by an industry practitioner, that consolidates, upskills or reskills learners in a professional area. They are stand-alone qualifications that indicate that you have been trained in a particular area or specific subject matter.
City College Diplomas are suitable for career minded learners wishing to advance their professional skills and prospects. They are widely accepted by employers and many students are sponsored to study here by their organisation.
In addition to our scheduled Professional Diploma courses, City Colleges can provide bespoke training over 3 – 4 days, please contact Kevin.Coyne@citygroup.ie for further details.
During this course the student will learn how to understand and record crime scene evidence that will assist in uncovering criminal activity. You will see case studies that demonstrate the importance of crime scene measurements, scaled drawings, photographing crime scenes, and preserving evidence. Students will grasp that with correct foundational theory and through proper collection of evidence, a crime scene can be reconstructed – and as a result – a theory can be formed about the crime.
