Training Services Logo

Our trainers are the best in their fields. They train new and existing analysts, detectives, digital media investigators and radio frequency survey technicians for the majority of the UK’s police forces. As a learning organisation, we are constantly gaining knowledge and insights from the people we train and we feed that back into our courses and solutions to keep them fresh.

Many of our courses are City & Guilds accredited, and all are test-based qualifications, ensuring their independence and robustness when challenged in court.

Courses are delivered as a combination of practical and theory, resulting in a solid understanding of the subject matter as well as hands-on experience.

They are available virtually or in-person, and we also offer one-to-one mentoring sessions.

Investigate with CSAS

The brand new Investigate with CSAS course focuses on scenario-based learning to demonstrate how the use of CSAS can inform effective decision making and drive investigations forward, helping the User develop the practical skills and confidence to conduct effective investigations.

Throughout, learners are given a safe environment to practice using the software and apply their skills in a range of simulated cases.

When time is of the essence

We know that some of our customers are only occasional users of CSAS, so we have developed our Basic Pathway for those who are unable to undertake the Recommended Pathway.

This comprises four e-learning courses, allowing the User to complete the training at their own pace while developing a foundational knowledge of how to use CSAS to support their investigations.
