This self-paced course is designed to introduce investigations to the major concepts and statistics of suicidology.
Suicidology is very important for investigators to study because you have to know what a normal suicide looks like before you can recognize a staged one. This two-week course is designed to introduce some of the macro concepts of suicidology in America today.
Pursuant to recognizing the red flags of staged suicide in the crime scene, studying suicidology is the underpinning that builds a strong foundation for knowing what is normal and what is abnormal.

The LPAIFI Online Division is self-paced. That means you can enroll and begin when you pay your tuition and you then have two weeks to complete the course. It's a good idea to set weekly goals for yourself to make sure you stay on track to complete the course within two weeks.
No. eBooks are not included with tuition. Most ebooks are available on Amazon as downloads on a Kindle App or other book reader. Books are typically very reasonably priced under $20 and are normally widely available.
All quizzes and essays must be successfully completed and submitted by 11:59pm EST on the last day of the course. Certificates of Completion are automatically generated by the course itself when all quizzes and essays have been graded by the course instructor and final points are entered into the grade book. If you ever find that you're confused, you can always contact your instructor or firstname.lastname@example.org for help.
Yes, yes, and no. Why? Because some of the essay questions are based on the material contained within. Discussion is optional, but if you have time don't miss out on such a great learning experience as watching slideshows and videos. By the same token, Discussion is a great way to meet other people in your class, ask questions about anything that comes to mind, and to engage with your instructor. Networking is power.
Instructors are active in the LPAIFI Online Monday through Friday at least three days of the week. To contact your instructor, use the Course Email Tool in the right hand corner of the course that is located between your account icon and the Discuss icon. Instructors typically respond to student emails within 48 hours.
