At Goodson Engineering, we believe that the pursuit of continuing education is vital to professional success. Our Goodson Insights Series provides continuing education programs that examine causes of fires, as well as techniques used for both scene and lab examinations.

We focus on both the science and the techniques that make for a competent investigation. We look at the processes involved in forensic engineering including observations, scientific tests, and engineering analysis that can be used to establish legally supportable conclusions.
