Ten-Print Comparison Competency Testing
Designed to assess the competence of those new to the fingerprint profession it assesses the participants ability to search inquiry sets of ten-prints against the reference collection of ten-prints, to successfully identify or exclude individual prints against the same reference collection supplied and to assess the suitability of the inquiry set to be added to the reference collection.
Finger and Palm Mark Comparison Competency Testing
This is an abridged version of the FCOM PT scheme designed to be carried out at the same time. However, instead of assessing the full end to end finger/palm mark comparison process it assesses the participants ability to successfully result the marks provided only. Participants wishing to have their processes assessed should go to the FCOM page.
