Specialized Forensic Science Training Program: Year-End Update and
Planning for FY 2002

Forensic Science Training Unit
Federal Bureau of Investigation
Quantico, Virginia

The FBI’s Forensic Science Training Unit mailed a training summary to each participating law enforcement agency on July 16, 2001, that provides a status report of applications on file. The training summary includes the following:

  • Students from the agency who have received training during this fiscal year,
  • Students selected to attend the upcoming scheduled classes in the following list, and
  • Students on the waiting list.

Agency managers will have an opportunity to reallocate any slots that remain unused (i.e., on the waiting list).

The July 16 mailing also includes student surveys and host-site requirement forms that will be used to determine class locations and rosters for classes during FY 2002.

The following class schedule for year-end FY 2001 is for informational purposes, only. Please note that additional applications are not being accepted for these classes. Students selected for these classes will be (or have been) contacted individually.

Forensic Science Training Unit personnel will continue to schedule classes to satisfy the applications on file. Follow-up schedules will be published in Forensic Science Communications. Please continue to check each quarterly issue for class information.

Thank you for your patience. Unit personnel are striving to meet law enforcement agencies’ training needs and the unit’s virtual academy and distance learning goals.

Please contact us if you have any questions or need further information:
