Advanced Ridgeology Science Workshop

Advanced Ridgeology Science Workshop
April 23 – 27, 2018
Dearborn, MI, USA

Presented by: Kathleen Bright-Birnbaum, CLPE

Course Description

This 5-day, 40-hour course, combines pertinent information on the science of friction Ridges and latent print identification techniques with a significant amount of latent print comparison practical exercises that help reinforce the newly learned concepts. The lecture material incorporates friction ridge concepts with the practical comparison exercises originally developed by Pat Wertheim. These practical exercises consist of actual latent prints and inked ten prints. The practical exercises are divided into a wide range of difficulty levels allowing each student to be evaluated and assigned practical exercises that are challenging, yet achievable. The exercises represent a wide range of difficulty levels that allows each student to work at his or her own level of competency, from beginning latent print examiners to those already certified by the IAI. Individual attention will be available during exercise periods. This class is ideal, even for senior examiners who wish to increase their speed and accuracy in doing latent print comparisons, lectures to improve a student’s overall knowledge of the fundamentals supporting ridgeology science, along with exercises to enable the examiner to develop the ability to make tough identifications and improve an examiner’s efficiency in doing comparison will be presented throughout the course.
This course has been approved for 40 hours of training credit towards certification/recertification by the IAI Latent Print Certification Board and the Tenprint Fingerprint Certification Board.
