More Info:

This is the first course in Bloodstain Pattern Analysis where the attendees will learn a variety of concepts associated with blood and bloodstains. This course provides the scientific and mathematical background for Bloodstain Pattern Analysis. This course is the first step in the training progression for an individual to become a Bloodstain Pattern Analyst.

This course offers the students an introduction of the history of Bloodstain Pattern Analysis. Students will also receive information and discussions on the science and physics associated with bloodstain pattern analysis. Bloodstain Pattern Analysis is the scientific study of the physical properties of blood in motion and the static aftermath resulting from dynamic event(s); it follows the same scientific principles and laws of physics associated with other liquids. Because of this fact, the concepts of bloodstain pattern analysis are reproducible in a laboratory and/or experimental setting. Bloodstain Pattern Analysis has been accepted as a scientific discipline.

Discussion on bloodstain terminology and bloodstain descriptions will be provided. The attendees will receive a review of geometry and trigonometry as it relates to Bloodstain Pattern Analysis. Area of convergence, area of origin, bloodstain sequencing, bloodstain movement, computer uses in Bloodstain Pattern Analysis, court preparations, presumptive tests and chemical enhancements and bio-hazards associated with bloodstains will also be presented.
