This Advanced Fingerprint Science Course will provide the students an increased understanding of the main principles of fingerprint identification: uniqueness and persistence. The course is broken down into three main sections, which will address the chemistry behind processing fingerprints, the anatomy and physiology of friction ridge skin and the extensive research that has been conducted in the field of fingerprint science. The students will be required to complete a skills processing exam to assess their understanding and ability to develop latent prints on items of evidence. In addition, there will be a written examination covering the topics of biology and development of friction ridge skin and a final comprehensive exam. Upon conclusion of this course, each student should have a firm grasp of why friction ridge skin can be used as a means of identification.
