The Forensic and Investigative Sciences Level II is designed to give graduates a recognized credential that can translate into greater recognition in a future career in forensics. After completing the three required courses offered through the Texas Forensic Science Academy graduates will have an intermediate understanding of forensics topics.

Required Courses

Once all 3 courses have been completed, applicants should confirm they meet all certificate requirements using the Forensic and Investigative Sciences Level II Application and return to the TEEX Law Enforcement & Protective Services Excellence division. Eligibility of each candidate will be reviewed and email notification of decision will be sent. Note: Applicants should have a majority of the Level I classes complete, if not the entire Level I certificate, before starting the Level II courses. Only one course from another provider will be accepted if the curriculum and hours match TEEX curriculum.

I learned more in this class than in the years of time I have used my camera and several other trainings. I knew almost nothing about photography compared to what I learned.
