Attendees will be provided with pre-manufactured kits for use. However, for a more comprehensive, complete experience, attendees are strongly recommended to have on hand for the hands-on session, three firearms/per person (that would be rendered, ultimately, for destruction). It is mandatory that the three firearms provided by the attending agency, bring one each of the following: magnetic, non-magnetic and aluminum (a list of these three types will be provided, if necessary, by the instructor prior to the class).
Upon completion of this course, the attendees will have gained a fundamental foundation and knowledge of what is necessary to restore/retrieve obliterated serial numbers from firearms (and other metal objects) that are submitted to the forensic laboratory.
