Certification Examination

After completing the course, you will be able eligible to sit for the certification examination. This examination is an optional online exam given by a third-party testing agency which you will take in your area through a testing proctor such as a college or library.

The examination is written and designed to national standards and is recognized by the American Board of Medicolegal Death Investigators ABMDI and the International Association of Coroners and Medical Examiners IAC-ME. This certification in no way replaces any certification levels offered by ABMDI. Instead, this certification serves to establish basic standards in death investigation practices while the investigator works to qualify for the ABMDI examination.
