Welcome to the LPAIFI Online Orientation Course. This course helps you understand how our courses are set up and how to navigate through all the parts. No training is better than hands on experience in the classroom, so use this course to help get you started, but don't worry, you'll learn as you go! It is really easy!

The LPAIFI Online is not just any online school because it is set up like a university, but for continuing education. Unlike most other continuing education companies, our courses are not just haphazardly thrown together. Rather all our courses are structurally sound and are designed to be able to prove they teach what they're supposed to teach and measure student success. Why take a course if it is a waste of your time because it is disorganized and disjointed? All of our courses are based on pursing these six goals...our six Program Outcomes:
The Course Objectives are the tasks students will complete during the course of the six units. Each course objective has been built from one or more of the LPAIFI's Continuing Education Program's Outcomes.
Our course objectives are linked all of the Program Outcomes. These are an example from our Crime Scene Staging Dynamics in Homicide Cases course:
The LPAIFI Online is a self-paced online school. That means you can enroll and begin when you pay your tuition and you then have six 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 six weeks.
No. Books are included with tuition. Most books are available on Amazon as downloads on a Kindle App or other book reader. Books are typically very reasonably priced 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 six week 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 [email protected] for help.
No. Discussion is optional, but just the same it is a great way to meet other people in your class, ask questions to those who might be ahead of you in the course and to engage with your instructor.
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.
