Video Profiles of Fire Investigators

In 2020, a small crew from CFITrainer.Net had the opportunity to travel the country and speak with fire investigators at all stages of their careers to get a sampling of the great diversity of this occupation. We talked about a wide variety of subjects, including their career paths, training practices, the IAAI, and their opinions on opportunities and challenges facing the profession. Our conversations were full of insights and inspiration and we're pleased to share them with you here.

We want to thank Tom Fee, Dan Heenan, Mike Schlatman, Kirk Hankins and others for helping us set up these interviews.
