Forensic Certifications Program Overview

The California School of Forensic Studies (CSFS) at Alliant International University is dedicated to providing law enforcement, security professionals, other first responders, social workers and mental and allied health professionals with practical forensic behavioral education and training.

The CSFS’s Advanced Practice Certificates cover diverse subject areas, while sharing a single objective: to train and support our participants to effectively prevent and mitigate conflict and violence.

CSFS is a corporate partner of the International Law Enforcement Educators and Trainers Association (ILEETA). Many of the Advanced Practice Certificates are also eligible for Continuing Education credit through the American Psychological Association (APA). 

All our forensic certificates are offered online by our faculty experts who practice in the respective fields such as forensic psychology, forensic criminology, and many others, and who bring their forensic study experience into the virtual classroom to transform theory into practice.
