Chartered Forensic Practitioner
Mike says: "It was a great honour to be accepted onto the pilot scheme for the newly introduced award of Chartered Forensic Practitioner status by the Chartered Society of Forensic Sciences and even more so to be one of the first five people to gain the award in 2018, and particularly the first ever fire investigator. "
"Despite my extensive experience and professional qualifications to date however, I know that there is still a great deal to be learned and written about fire and electricity, a challenge I welcome with true relish. As technology, sociology and the litigation evolve, so do the challenges which keeps the subject fresh and demanding; definitely no room for complacency."
