Advanced ACE-V Applications for Fingerprint Examiners
From Monday, April 16 2018
To Friday, April 20 2018
Every day

 Sponsor: Ron Smith and Associates

Description: This is a more advanced and complex course, with some assumption that the student has previously been exposed to the basics of Ridgeology, ACE-V, Daubert issues, distortions and complex analyses.  Ideally the student will have a minimum of 2 years in latent print work or 8 years in 10-print work.  The course deals with complex issues such as “uncertainty”,  “error rates”, “cognitive bias” and “complex distortions”.  As such students should come prepared to hear new views and see new research on these topics.  This course is recommended by the instructor and Ron Smith & Associates, Inc. for agencies dealing with issues of meeting accreditation requirements specifically related to documenting and understanding the process of ACE-V or finding new ways to deal with the criticisms in the 2009 NAS report of forensic sciences.
