    Find out what your state requires to get certified if anything

    Hook up with local investigators to see if you can tide out with them or help

    Maybe a task force that needs help

    Attend national fire academy classes if you are on a dept

    Here is a private training compang::

    See if there is an iaai chapter in your area for meetings and training to attend

    Could you actually hire a private investigator n.y. to do an private investigation in an arson case? What would be the legal implications of this?

    Paul huh????

    You can hire a private investigator to Investigate the fire yes


    Possibly if he finds something the da may take the case

    A little problem with scene evidence, if it was not collected at the time of the fire

    If you are a member of a department, you should check on going to the National Fire Academy in Emmitsburg, MD. They reimburse the costs associated with the class (except food) and it is a really great course. Also check out www.cfitrainer.net online. There are many modules on that site which were actually pre-requisites for the NFA class.
