Evidence Collection Practicum Friday, March 03,2017
7490 Bridgewater Road Dayton, Ohio 45424
Applicants that submit proper documentation to support their experience; training and education will be allowed to participate in a comprehensive practical examination (known as an Evidence Skills Practicum).
The practical examination will be based on the core job performance requirements and recommended guidelines related to evidence collection outlined above; and the testing protocols will be developed from readily available authoritative text and treatises related to fire investigation evidence collection. Applicants MUST pass all critical elements and achieve a minimum score of 70% on each of the 10 components of the practical testing to be deemed to have successfully challenged the exam. Applicants that fail to perform a critical element on a particular component or do not meet the minimum score on a particular component will be given one opportunity to remediate that component. Applicants are limited to remedial attempts on two components in a particular scheduled offering. If an applicant does not meet the minimum established criteria on the remedial examination or fails to achieve a passing score on more than three components during a scheduled offering, their application will be rejected. The applicant will be allowed one opportunity to re-test at a scheduled offering within a six month period and must successfully challenge all ten components without remediation of any station.
This re-test will require the payment of additional facilitation fees. If an applicant does not meet the established criteria during the re-test, the application will be rejected and all fees forfeited. The applicant can re-apply for the professional designation no sooner than six months from date of the re-test exam and must submit a new application and will be responsible for submission of the appropriate application and facilitation fees. A current list of text is contained in appendix A.
The practical examination test bank is developed and maintained by the IAAI Training and Education Committee. This test bank contains enough exercises to provide for remedial examination, if necessary, where no question from the original exercises will appear on subsequent remedial examination(s) given to an applicant at a particular scheduled offering.
Applicants challenging the comprehensive practical examination (Evidence Skills Practicum) must perform all critical steps and must obtain a minimum passing score of 70% on each of ten components to pass this examination. An applicant that fails to achieve a passing score on their first attempt will be provided an opportunity to remediate a particular exercise, with a limit of remediation attempts on no more than two components. The remedial exam(s) will cover substantially the same subject matter but, will not contain the same exercise as the first examination.
