Career Guide to
Criminal Profiling

For questions regarding your order, please contact us.


To more completely answer your questions about criminal profiling as a career, we have prepared a Career Guide to Criminal Profiling. This guide can be purchased as an online access subscription for one year, as a CD-ROM, or both.

The purpose of this career guide is to provide interested students and student professionals (professionals engaged in continuing education) with some basic tools and information that will help them build evidence-based criminal profiling related knowledge and ability within their educational or vocational track. The Career Guide to Criminal Profiling is not a substitute for our online training, but rather an adjunct that will give students an understanding of what Criminal Profiling is, before learning how to apply it.

The Career Guide contains much original content and the CD-ROM version does not require a connection to the Internet. However, it does supplement information by links to resources on the Internet, therefore, we recommend that the Career Guide is utilized while connected to the Internet (we do not provide Internet access). To order, please click on the appropriate option below to be taken to our shopping cart. Please see Contents for more information.
