The Association provides Continuing Professional Development for its members. However, it not a course in the traditional sense.

The Association offers a certification program which assesses the qualifications of applicants (Canadian and International) as a Certified Forensic Investigator (CFI) or a Certified Forensic Technician (CFT) as a means of recognizing true professionals in the field of forensic investigation.

In order to receive the CFI certification, an applicant meet the necessary education and experience requirements and successfully complete a certification exam and a personal and professional background check. This involves following a three stage process. Please refer to the following link: Join the ACFI

In order to receive the CFT certification, the applicant must have completed an approved post secondary program and successfully complete the certification exam and a personal & professional background check. Currently, there are only two such programs. Please refer to the following links: Academic Programs & Courses
