Enter the World of Criminal Profiling

Our Criminal Profiling Training Program is a unique and original program on the subject, which teaches the different theoretical and methodological frameworks -holistically and globally- that are needed to learn Criminal Profiling.

We teach our students how to analyze a crime scene from a behavioral analyst’s point of view.

Students will learn criminal profiling through several case studies, from which they will study how to identify criminal behavior at the scene and how to analyze it, so as to infer offender characteristics, which may aid law enforcement investigators through criminal profiles.

In this regard, our training offers a distinctly practical program which will allow our students to learn criminal profiling and its multiple applications, both from the perspective of law enforcement as well as that of forensic or expert testimony.

To learn criminal profiling, the student will have to actually stand in the shoes of actual criminal profilers.

Our teaching staff is composed of professional experts in criminal profiling who work in some of the most distinguished behavioral analysis units in law enforcement, at an international level.
