This Certificate provides students with the technical and professional knowledge to prepare for a career in fire and arson investigation. Part detective, scientist, engineer, and law enforcer, the investigator represents the many different facets of both fire science and criminal justice. An arson investigator tries to determine who is responsible for setting a fire; a fire investigator attempts to determine the cause and origin of a fire. This certificate curriculum has been designed to be compatible with industry standards and prepares the student for the challenges they may face in investigations and court settings.
