The PBS series Frontline is airing their program, The Real CSI tonight. If you check out their site, one of the most interesting pieces accompanying the program information is an article about the American College of Forensic Examiners Institute (“No Forensic Background? No Problem“).

I am definitely interested in people’s thoughts on the piece. Also, please let me know if you end up getting the opportunity to watch the full documentary–alas, I have no actual TV in my house, so I will eagerly await it being available online.

    I am really surprised that there is not one comment on here about this article! It goes to point out what we have been saying all along, about how taking a class and then a test AFTER a class immediately, does not make any “certificate” valid for practice. I really appreciate that IAFN’s Board Certification for SANE-A and SANE-P do reflect the highest standards, and not just taking a particular course.

    Well, Kim, there may not have been any comments, but this has been the most widely read post of 2012, so my hunch is people are talking about it.

    Does anyone know if this program is available to view on the internet or did anyone record it? Wanted to see it but worked that night.
