Criminal Profiling Coursework
Forensic Solutions offers a progressive series of online courses designed to help students and professionals understand the principles of evidence based criminal profiling and how to apply them. These are not courses in statistical analysis but case analysis. The methods taught are practical, and the lessons are universal.

Criminal profiling is based on investigative, forensic and psychological principles that can be taught, learned, and applied so long as students and practitioners have a high degree of motivation, a tireless work ethic, and a willingness to put the objective investigation of fact before all else. 

The recommended course of study through Forensic Solutions includes:

- CP501: Criminal Profiling

- CP515: Sexual Assault Investigation

- CP550: Advanced Criminal Profiling

- CP551: Applied Criminal Profiling I

- CP552: Applied Criminal Profiling II

- CP553: Applied Criminal Profiling III

Note that CP501 is a pre-requisite for CP550; CP550 is a pre-requisite for CP551-553.
