With everyone looking to get into the forensic science field, it is an excellent idea to look for a program that is accredited to teach not just the field work, but more importantly the scientific testing back in the laboratory.
Almost anyone can be taught the field work on the job, but it requires a higher level of education and science proficiency to get the higher paying, more rewarding, job back in the laboratory.
“Because of the popularity of forensic science there were many programs popping up calling themselves forensic science programs, but they really focused more on the crime-scene side of it,” Linville says. “FEPAC wants to establish that programs that call themselves forensic science programs are really focused on the laboratory side of forensic science and are biology– and chemistry-based programs, and not criminal justice and investigation-type of programs.”
