Crime Scene Investigator (CSI) Certificate

 
 

 

After the completion of all four Crime Scene Investigator (CSI) levels, the students will obtain a Crime Scene Investigator Certificate from Northeastern State University (NSU) and the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation (OSBI). Students are not required to attend all four course blocks, but attendance and proficiency in all four will be required to obtain a Crime Scene Investigator Certificate.

By offering this format, NSU and the OSBI are offering a blended learning platform not currently available to this audience that allows for greater attendance by law enforcement departments who are not staffed or funded at levels that allow all on campus training.

The courses will be uploaded and offered through the NSU's BlackBoard System that can be accessed from any location that has an internet connection, using NSU login credentials provided to enrolled students. Face-to-face courses take place on the NSU Broken Arrow campus from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.
