What is this course about?

CSU's Fire Investigation program is a series of courses aiming to develop and increase the knowledge of practitioners in the field of fire investigation. They aim to improve professional standards by the application of knowledge of sound investigative practice together with an understanding of fire dynamics, fire causation and fire setting motives.

Course participants will be exposed to current investigative best practice, the physics of fire behaviour and theories of deviance associated with fire setting.

Assessment topics will encourage students to apply theory to practice and exercise best practice in their own investigations.

Professional recognition

These courses are nationally accredited and registered awards in tertiary education.

Credit and articulation

The Graduate Certificate in Fire Investigation fully articulates with the Graduate Diploma of Fire Investigation, which fully articulates with the Master of Fire Investigation.

The course is currently subject to review and some subjects may change, but this will not affect students' progress in the program.
