Forensic Laser Scanner & SCENE

Course Description

Duration of Training: Five days

Pre-Requisite: None

Objective: Course is a combination of Lecture, PowerPoint, Training Manual and hands on exercises, instructed by a FARO Application Engineer with a background in law enforcement or law enforcement training.  Course will be split into break-out sessions when applicable.

This course instructs users in the operation of the FARO laser scanner and FARO SCENE software.  Each student will get hands on usage instruction with the laser scanner.  The students will also get instruction on how to process data in FARO SCENE software.  The course will cover methodologies, strategies and workflows for FARO software and hardware, based upon the collective experiences of Law Enforcement and Forensic experts.   Focus will be aimed toward the user's basic knowledge, understanding of how the system works, how to use the data and how to prove the data accuracy.   In addition, the user will learn how to create court ready illustrations or diagrams.
