Future Events

The ACT Branch is dedicated towards providing our members with access to resources, events and workshops to support their professional development, education and career.

Next month, the NCFS (a partnership between the University of Canberra, Canberra Institute of Technology, and the Australian Federal Police) and the CFSA are hosting a student workshop on “Working for the AFP”. The workshop will be held at the University of Canberra, room 7B10, Thursday 1 November from 4 to 6pm. Entry is FREE with refreshments provided.

AFP staff will give presentations about how to apply to the AFP, the induction and training process and their work experiences. This is a great opportunity to become familiar with the eligibility requirements and benefits of the AFP early in your degree or career.

Please note, this is not an ANZFSS-led event, nor is it sponsored by the ACT Branch.

Member Testimonials

“As a student with very little industry exposure it was an incredibly positive experience interacting with so many industry professionals. By making friends and developing contacts, I was able to gain insights into what the industry is like directly from those working within it … another great opportunity to explore part of the industry not available to most. To other forensic science students out there, these opportunities are ones to look out for … the exposure you’ll receive to the industry is priceless.” – Samuel, speaking on his experience at the Bloodstain Pattern Analysis II workshop in April 2017.
