Training of Death Investigators for HazMat Incidents

Coroners, Medical Examiners, and their staffs who investigate deaths in hazardous materials environments are at risk of harm unless appropriately trained. This course is designed to provide practical training relevant to the job tasks of death investigators. Download our slideshow to learn more about our training.

Training that is relevant

Typical hazardous materials response training focuses on the job tasks of those trying to stop or control a spill or release. As a death investigator, your job is different. You need training that focuses on the specific skills that you need. In addition to knowing how to work in a hazardous environment, you need to know how to recover contaminated evidence and how to decontaminate remains for safe disposition. We've created a training program addressing chemical, radiological and biological hazards (such as ebola) specifically for you. It will help you stay safe while performing your legally required duties.

Convenient on-line classroom

We’ve taken the classroom portion of the course and put it on the internet in 15 lessons. Learners can go at their own pace and accommodate their own schedule. Typically, learners take 24 cumulative hours to finish. Hands-on and group skills are important features of this type of training. We have arranged these into 16 hours of training that can be done at a locally hosted site when there are sufficient students that have completed the on-line lessons.

TOTAL COST FOR THE CLASS IS $600, but for a limited number of classes we can offer a reduction to $100 per student.

Contact us for information on enrolling in the course, costs, and the availability of the hands-on portion of the training in your area. A limited number of scholarships are available.
