Course description

In Electrical Forensics Engineering , you'll learn ...

  • How electricity works and the ways that electrical energy can be used or misused
  • How to determine the cause or causes of electrical failures and accidents
  • How to evaluate electrical equipment and systems in order to prevent future accidents
  • A five-step procedure for investigating electrical failures when retained by insurance companies


Imagine arriving at the scene of a multi-million dollar fire and being asked to prove or disprove whether an electrical event was the cause of it. There may have been injuries sustained or deaths from the fire. Lawyers, investigators, owners, police, and curious onlookers are present. You are coming in after the fact, and perhaps the evidence has been compromised. This situation, one that an electrical forensics engineer might face, calls for someone with experience, fortitude, well-honed skills and talents, and a keen eye for detail. Unlike the glamorized versions of the profession you might see on television or in the movies, a career in forensics sometimes requires long and solitary work hours, frequent travel, and field work that is dirty and messy, but above all, necessary.

This webinar presents an interesting and timely introduction to the science of forensics and shows how electrical energy fits into that science. Our discussion will emphasize energy concepts, but we will also look at the rules and protocols of doing forensics work. Forensics is a science, after all; therefore, certain procedures must be followed by a forensics engineer in order to do his or her job properly. Designed for engineers of all disciplines, this web-based seminar contains much of the basic theory that is needed to even begin looking at the causes of failures in the electrical world.

Special Note: Course E-4015 and course E-2013W are alternate presentations of the same course material. Therefore, only one version, either the course or webinar, can be taken during a renewal cycle. If you have any questions regarding course eligibility, please contact our Customer Service Team.
