One-week long intensive practical courses are presented from time to time at the BOLD laboratory's facilities in beautiful Vancouver, Canada. Opportunities are provided to study modern analysis methods in detail. Understanding the role and responsibilities of the lab analyst provides the odontologist working on cases with a better appreciation for proper methods to recognize, recover, preserve and submit the best possible forensic evidence.
