RS&A COMPETENCY TESTING
Competency tests are designed to test the skills and abilities of individual examiners.  Our competency tests cover a wide variety of comparison abilities, such as orientation, sufficiencysufficiencysufficiencysufficiencysufficiencysufficiency and conclusions.  These tests are valid and used as a reliable means to measure Latent Print Examiners knowledge, skills and abilities at key points throughout their career path.

If your laboratory is interested in testing the laboratory quality system then please refer to our Proficiency Tests.
If your laboratory is interested in comparison training materials, please refer to our Comparison Exercises. 

Competency is NOT a stagnant unchanging entity.  All forensic specialists should strive and are most often expected to grow in skill level throughout their career.  A "One Size Fits All" competency testing concept simply does not meet the need of today's forensic community.  From screening potential trainees to ensuring that your more "senior" LPEs can still make the tough calls, and numerous career stages in between, RS&A has designed fair and thorough competency tests to answer these tough questions.
