Trauma and Crime Scene Technician TCST (IICRC Certification)

$950.00 incl. GST


Instructor: Jason Twigg

Environments that have sustained damages from blood, body fluids, and other potentially infectious materials, or potentially pathogenic microorganisms require technicians that have been trained in specialised remediation processes.

The IICRC TCST Trauma and Crime Scene Cleaning Technician certification course will prepare attendees working on crime and accident scenes contaminated with bloodborne pathogens and infectious disease, along with many other scenes requiring a skilled and qualified person.

Corestone instructors will use simple explanations, theory, case studies and hands on training that is staged to look like a real job, which may be encountered.
