101F Fingerprint Classification and Identification
This course covers the methodology of locating latent prints and matching latent prints to known prints, and the classification of prints. Modern technology regarding latent print development, alternative light sources and the future of computerized classification are explored. Optional kits are available to complement the written material.

Course objectives
After successfully completing Course 101F, the student will be able to:
• Relate the history of the science of human identification.
• Describe the formation and identification of fingerprints and other significant markings on human fingers.
• Define fingerprint classifications.
• Record and file fingerprints—under normal and unusual circumstances.
• Differentiate ridge characteristics in finger, palm and foot prints.
• Match and interpret fingerprints.
• Describe crime scene procedures, including developing latent prints.
• Prepare court exhibits and present evidence in court.
• Discuss the F.B.I. extensions to the Henry Classification System.
• Conduct post-mortem fingerprint identification.
