Course Information

What are the benefits and requirements of hosting the Crime Scene Photography course in Houston?

Hosting the crime scene photography course has several benefits for the agency. One advantage is eliminating costs associated with travel and lodging for employees. Another benefit is that the hosting agency or organization receives free tuitions based on the number of paying students as follows:

  • One free tuition if the course has 14 paying students.

  • Two free tuitions if the course has 18 paying students.

  • Three free tuitions if the course has 22 paying students.

The course requires a minimum of 10 paying students. If the minimum number of paying students is not met, the class will be canceled, and all tuitions paid will be promptly refunded.

To host the crime scene photography course, we require that you provide a lecture room for digital media presentations.

The responsibility of the hosting agency or organization is to aid in recruiting students for the course. We will supply a course flyer that can be distributed to nearby agencies, and we will post the course on various websites. All travel and associated costs are the responsibility of Gaziano Forensic Consulting and not the hosting agency.
