ESR provides training for forensic scientists, Police scene-of-crime officers, Police investigators and other law enforcement agencies in New Zealand and around the world.

Our forensic scientists provide comprehensive training for New Zealand and international clients covering forensic crime scene investigation (both in the field and in the laboratory), laboratory methods and technologies, forensic laboratory management, forensic quality management and giving evidence as an expert witness.

ESR's expertise in blood pattern analysis as well as 3D visualisation, drone imagery and virtual reality data capture, and DNA interpretation, is also frequently called upon to provide training to forensic laboratories and Police.
