Becoming an expert in a new career will take dedication and focus. Fingerprint technicians need to pay attention to detail. People are relying on you to do your job right in order for them to get their job, volunteer or even adopt. If you make a mistake you will delay that opportunity for someone else. This is why hands on practice and learning what to look out for is crucial in this business.
There are some aspects of becoming a certified fingerprint technician that you can learn on your computer at home. Other facets you cannot master without hands on practice. We will maximize your time and teach you through both online and in person mastering of your craft. Knowing what to look out for and how to double check your work are important steps to being the best in your business. Just like no two fingerprints are the same neither are fingerprinting certification classes.
As with any industry, there are ongoing updates and continuing education. As a member of NAOCFT you will receive industry updates and current fingerprint clearance requirements as the trade changes. Equipment frequently becomes obsolete as technology changes and new techniques are passed along.
Fingerprint technicians should be a people person. If you don’t like to have the public in your space and if you do not like working in customer service, you may want to consider a different career.
