One of the goals of Chapter 25 IAAI is to provide membership with current and up to date training, besides its seminars Chapter 25 IAAI provides members with training sessions throughout the year, we work closely with the Wisconsin Division of Criminal Investigation in an effort to keep investigators in Wisconsin aware of the ever changing trends and resources when it involves fire investigation, fire prevention and arson investigation, Chapter 25 IAAI will continue to aid membership with the resources that are available.

Wisconsin Chapter 25 IAAI offers a basic Fire Investigation Course that is offered two times during the year, the first offering is at our Spring Seminar which takes place in June, this is held in Stevens Point Wisconsin. The second offering is at our Fall Seminar which takes place in November and the location varies.
