How do you train for a career in Forensics?
Start with the RCMP
Forensic Science and Identification Services
The RCMP website is the best place to get started. In fact, to gain employment within this industry one must usually have experience with the RCMP or local police forces.
A Bachelor of Science (BSc) degree from the Faculty of Science, at the University of Alberta, can lead you in the right path, and areas like Chemistry, Molecular Genetics, Biology, Pharmacology, Microbiology, and Biochemistry all provide a good background for forensics.
