What is the Advanced Forensic Investigation Training (AFIT)?
This 40-hour experiential training is for detectives, DCS investigators, prosecutors and forensic interviewers. It is funded in part by ASU and the Governor’s Office of Youth, Faith and Family, and requires Basic Forensic Interview Training as a prerequisite. It teaches investigation and interviewing skills of children who are victims of or witnesses to crimes.
Unfortunately, we can no longer offer AZPOST credit for AFIT.
For questions about Advanced Forensic Investigation Training, please contact Claire Louge, Director of Training and Outreach, at Claire@pcaaz.org.
