Purposes and Objectives:

Knowledge Solutions is pleased to be offering CP102, Rape Investigation I. The objective of CP102 is to give students an awareness level of understanding of the crime of rape from the victim's perspective. Without this baseline understanding of these very serious issues, a rape investigator will not be as effective, and in fact may put the investigation at risk.

CP102 is meant to address the questions of what rape is, how we react to it, how it affects the victim, and how we have defined and perceived victims in our society. It is not a politically correct course, and it is not a course that is sympathetic to one group over another. It is an objective rendering of the issues which allows the student to assess their own biases and issues regarding the crime of rape.

For a full syllabus, please refer here:
CP102 Syllabus.

Starting Date:


Ending Date: TBA

Please note the Saturday start date for this 3-week course.

Maximum course size: 50 students
Time Commitment: 5 + hours / week

Please note: Due to the nature of our online courses, course materials and the discussion forum are available 24 hours a day and can be accessed according to the student's individual schedule. Thus, the time commitment can only be an estimate on our part and will vary from student to student.
