BLOOD PATTERN ANALYSIS
The examination of blood patterns found in a scene or on items recovered from the scene. The BGA Bloodstain Pattern Analyst Professional Development Program (BPAPD) is a cradle to grave program consisting of four parts. We feel it represents the most comprehensive study plan for bloodstain pattern analysts offered in the United States.
To properly train competent bloodstain pattern analysts, a comprehensive training program is required that leads the student from novice to competent analyst and ultimately to the status of expert. In the recent past, questions have been raised with regard to the technical training analysts receive, particularly within the United States.
Based on these concerns BGA has revised and expanded its bloodstain training curriculum beyond that found in the classic "Basic" and "Advanced" bloodstain courses. The BGA Bloodstain Pattern Analyst Professional Development Program (BPAPD) is intended to better meet the needs of both the student and the discipline.
To begin this training we are offering a Level I course in Denton, TX from April 20-24th. There are no prerequisites. This class offers 40hrs of professional instruction to develop a basic understanding of the discipline of BPA.
Other Level I courses offered are in Idaho Falls, ID from June 15-19th and Colorado Springs, CO from July 6-10th.
