This past week, the chapter hosted an IAAI Expert Witness Courtroom Testimony Course in Burlington County, NJ. Seven students spent the past month and half preparing for this course and participated in mock trial in a real courtroom for the experience of testifying in court. We congratulate these students for their accomplishments with this course. We would like to thank the course facilitator Van Presson of EFI Global from Mississippi, the attorneys Chris Konzelman and Lian Skaf of White and Williams LLP, the Burlington County Fire Academy, and the Hainesport Municipal Courtroom.
The chapter is planning to hold another course next year so be on the lookout for more information. This is an advanced course that limits the number to eight students because of the intense workload and time commitment. Students are also vetted for the course due to the number of prerequisites that they will need to apply. This course meets the requirements for courtroom experience on the IAAI-CFI application if the student desires to test. Again, congratulations to all the students that passed this tested course.
