The National Forensic Academy’s Investigator Virtual Reality (I-VR) is an interactive online training tool designed to provide crime scene investigation training to State and local forensic practitioners developed through grant funding through National Institute of Justice.

The participant works with a virtual instructor to learn how to use the virtual tools, the process, and the skills that are essential to crime scene management and evidence detection. Once the participant completes the virtual lessons, they can use the techniques presented to take on the role of a virtual crime scene investigator – collecting evidence and documenting a virtual crime scene.

This class is a great refresher for the seasoned CSI or for new investigators on the job.
