Our courses are delivered by recognised experts in forensic examination, trauma and aftercare, sexual health, policing and criminal law. We use case studies and interactive sessions to encourage participants to share the benefits of their experience and to learn from each other. Group discounts are available.

Following recommendations by the Faculty of Forensic & Legal Medicine (FFLM), we are amending the format of our courses.
