Welcome to the Institute of Traffic Accident Investigators Member's Page

In collaboration with the Institute of Traffic Accident Investigation

This page contains service, courses and information aimed at collision investigators, to help improve your forensic photography and provide more robust evidence to the courts / clients.

A camera is possibly one of the most important pieces of equipment a Collision Investigator has available to them, when capturing evidence, but it is also one of the most overlooked, when it comes to training. A view not shared by the Forensic Science Regulator or us! It is apparent that Collision Investigators need to be able demonstrate that they have been trained to use equipment and that they are competent, understand the technology and are compliant with guidance and regulations in the field and for many, ISO compliance is now a necessity.

Our newly revamped course for Forensic Collision Investigators, features comprehensive and detailed training, assessments and examinations, backed up by training staff with over 30 years experience in the photographic industry, 30 years experience in Collision Investigation, plus our own studio, equipped with computers, lighting, photographic equipment and outside areas for practical sessions. It's also a valuable source of CPD and recognised by ITAI. Certificate issued upon successful completion of examinations and assignments.
