The course combines classroom and hands-on training with practical exercises on how to conduct a systematic and accurate examination of burned vehicle. Extended focus will be given to signs of forced entry and manipulation of ignition systems and identifying normal conditions affected by fire damage. Additional instruction will also be given to potential signs of arson and intentional tampering causing mechanical or electrical failures.
