The HID University Training Program
Training is the Key to Success
Forensic DNA testing constantly evolves with new technologies, procedures, and requirements. To maintain success, DNA analysts must learn how best to adapt laboratory processes and improve their technical understanding of analysis procedures
All of these reasons make training a top priority. Properly trained forensic scientists increase productivity, reduce down- time, and contribute to the laboratory's success. Whether you are validating new technologies and protocols or want to gain an understanding of basic troubleshooting skills for specific applications, our Integrated Human Identification Training courses will help you to achieve your goals.
Thermo Fisher Scientific understands how training and continued education for DNA analysts contributes to the success of any laboratory. We partner with the human identification community to provide specialized training courses for our Applied Biosystems® validated reagents, instrumentation, and software. The HID University logo indicates training opportunities in your region that are designed specifically for users of Applied Biosystems® products validated for use in human identification applications.
Courses Offered at Customer Experience Centres
Introductory Human Identification
Objective: This course is designed to explore the core techniques required for human identification investigations whilst allowing the opportunity for discussion of the wider implications of this type of analysis. The course uses Applied Biosystems reagents and instrumentation to provide participants with the skills necessary to understand modern forensic DNA processing. This course is aimed at those with a basic understanding of biology, who would like to extend their knowledge to cover the latest in human identification analysis. The course will use a combination of practical and theory sessions to provide the participants with a thorough grounding in techniques. At the end of the course participants will be able to:
