At the Death Investigation Academy, we believe education is a lifelong pursuit, and we want to empower you to achieve your goals throughout your life and career. We’re continually working to improve our courses and platform to give you access to relevant content, and to help you learn more efficiently and effectively.

Course are pre-scheduled and will open in your dashboard every 30-days starting from your first day of enrollment.  

The monthly membership bills your card on the same date each month 5th, 10th, 23rd, etc whichever date you first registered.  The courses are released in the order they show on your membership course bundle in your dashboard.  They are released every 30 days in order regardless of your billing date.  

So, the day you first enroll you will see that Determining Time of Death is open and can be completed, then in 30 days, the Implications in cause and manner course will open, again regardless of your billing cycle.  This will continue every 30 days until payments have stopped or you reach the last course.  The first few courses are in the following order from the first date of enrollment. 

  • Determining Time of Death - Immediate 
  • Implications in Cause and Manner Rulings - 30 days
  • Death Notification Procedures - 60 days
  • Professional Conduct - Skills and Attributes - 90 days
  • Scene Management and Documentation - 120 days

This is an online video training and is designed to be interactive with students by random quizzes and a final exam. Student login and time are tracked per student to verify time spent in the course if needed.   Testing cannot be done until the videos are watched.  Many videos have a unique symbol or picture that will appear prominently in the video and is part of the test questions, this will ensure the video has been watched.  

Certificates will only be available for print after the successful completion of the course.

Each certificate will indicate that it was computer-based training and will note the post control number and the CLEE hours given.


  • If I start my monthly membership can I cancel anytime?

    Of course, but why in the world would you want to? Simply notify us and your payments, and access will end.

  • Do I get a certificate for each course completed every month?

    Yes. After the course is completed the certificate will automagically appear for you to print. We will also mail you one.

  • Do I have to be working in the field as police or C/ME investigator to be a member?

    No. Our courses are open to everyone. It is our goal that we training people looking to enter a career of their own or supporting roles.

  • Are the courses available on mobile devices?

    Yes. All courses and content are viewable and actionable on any mobile device.

  • Does the monthly membership lead me to the certification.

    No. The monthly membership is great for ongoing education and ConEd credits. However, it does not lead to the certification path. Whereas some courses and topics are included in the full MDI Academy course, the learning path and structure would not translate correctly to the certification process.
