You could get into this job by taking a course through a professional body like AiTS. Courses include:
- University Certificate of Professional Development (UCPD) Forensic Road Collision Investigation
- Foundation Degree in Forensic Road Collision Investigation
The certificate is the starting point if you want to become a forensic road collision investigator and have no experience of investigating road collisions. You would then move on to the foundation degree.
After the foundation degree, you can 'top up' to the BSc (Hons) Professional Studies in Forensic Road Collision Investigation.
Qualifications are offered on a part-time basis through a mix of online and classroom learning.
You'll usually need:
- 5 GCSEs at grade 4 (C) or above, including English, maths and sometimes a science
2 to 3 A levels, including maths or science, or the UCPD in Forensic Road Collision Investigation for the foundation degree
