“Thank you Darren and everyone at DIT Academy for creating this training and giving people like me who want to enter the death investigation field, a way to do that without knowing someone in the business already. This training is beyond incredible! I have done a lot of research, reading, and training in my own before completing the course but I learned so much more and gained invaluable resources. Thank you again to the entire DITA Team!!”

“Very informative and straight to the point. Definitely a great addition to a police officer's training. More so a basic refresher for a Medicolegal Death Investigator or ME/Coroner investigator. Overall, very well done with the time allotted. ”

“I am currently a forensic science student, and I found this course to help occupy some of my free time over the past few days. I genuinely valued learning this information at my own pace, and I actually wish that it was longer so I could learn more immediately! My one recommendation would be to have the camera pulled back slightly when doing demonstrations on the front table, as that could not clearly be seen. Otherwise, I definitely felt this course was worthwhile. ”
