After the Fact (AtF) Crime Scene Proficiency Test
The After the Fact (AtF) crime scene proficiency test is a web-based virtual proficiency testing tool developed by NIFS and the US National Forensic Science Technology Center, for the crime scene environment and is like no other test on the market. NIFS also works with the Crime Scene Proficiency Advisory Committee each year, to develop the major and volume crime scene scenarios.
Using virtual reality technology, the program replaces the costly and time-consuming practice of creating mock crime scenes for the purpose of training and performance assessment, as well as supports consistency in testing standards for crime scene practitioners across Australia.
Through the innovative use of video and still photography, AtF allows the investigator to 'walk through' the scene and provides for realistic scene processing including photography, note-taking, collection, labelling and packaging. AtF comes in either training or assessment versions.
