Springfield, MO (PRWEB) October 26, 2012
Dr. Kathryn Seifert of Salisbury, MD has earned the prestigious Certified Forensic Consultant, CFC® designation from the American College of Forensic Examiners Institutes (ACFEI).
The CFC program recognizes a forensic consultant's training, experience and dedication to the highest of standards in the American judicial system.
Forensic consultants are well-trained forensic specialists who are often brought into civil and criminal court cases to provide objective analysis, expert opinions, and specialized knowledge of evidence.
The CFC course and examination prepares the forensic consultant to be successful in court by covering a diverse range of related topics, including professional ethics, writing error-proof reports, preparing interrogatories and deposition testimony, presenting testimonial evidence and opinions, and comporting with jurisdictional rules.
The CFC designation contributes to the weight of testimony a forensic professional presents, and it helps verify the validity of the evidence presented, the application of specialized knowledge to the facts in a case, and the relevance of the evidence to the issues in the case.
The ACFEI is the world's largest forensic science association, and it covers a broad range of forensic specialties. The association actively promotes raising forensic science awareness, and it supports its members as they work to advance their fields.
ACFEI serves as the national center for this purpose and circulates information through its journal, The Forensic Examiner®, lectures, seminars, conferences, workshops, continuing education courses, and home study courses.
