Forensic science and fingerprints – Free OU Course

OK its not going to get you the job as a CSI but its great for crime writers or nyone who might be looking to get into a CSI role (or even an actor who might want to take a role in a drama?)

The OU is offering their free courses again and this one is all about fingerprints and forensic science.

After studying this course, you should be able to:

  • demonstrate knowledge and understanding of some of the basic facts, language, concepts and principles relating to the principles and significance of fingerprint matching
  • demonstrate knowledge and understanding of some of the links between forensic science and the legal system
  • draw together information from different sources and make logical deductions as a result
  • demonstrate an understanding of how forensic scientists operate and use scientific evidence in a legal context.

So thise outcomes are well defined and anyone on a BTEC Forensic Science course should have that knowledge already but its still worth keeping your skills up.

This one lasts for 10 hours so not too long and should give some knowledge that can help later in life.
