Who We Are

IGC was founded in January 2015 with a clear objective: to provide a more honest, proficient and cost-effective service than our competitors, at home and overseas.  Collectively we have a vast amount of experience as practitioners within the military, law enforcement and training arenas, and are dedicated to the delivery of a first-class service that is underpinned by exceptional values and standards and above all, integrity and client confidentiality.

Our Values

Integrity, loyalty, discretion and professionalism are core tenents by which IGC conducts its business. We are committed to building enduring relationships with clients through the delivery of specialist services. As a company, we believe in providing our clients with absolute discretion. In our partner companies who provide second and third line support, we look for similar business ethics and standards to ensure peace of mind and assurance to our clients.

Why Use Us

We are staffed by professional practitioners and academics who are passionate about their respective fields of expertise. This ensures continual excellence in the services that we deliver.  The establishment and maintenance of enduring client and partner company relationships is also a core tenet of the IGC ethos and we are continually seeking innovative development opportunities that are mutually beneficial to our friends, associates and ourselves.

SFJ Awards

SFJ Awards Approved Centre

IGC are extremely pleased to have been awarded SFJ Awards Approved Centre status and have the only accredited CSI Stage 1 course in the UK.  The accreditation we receive is by SFJ Awards through the Accrediting Learning Professionally (ALP) and will apply to all of the forensic courses that we deliver.

What is SFJ Awards?

SFJ Awards customised awards scheme has been designed to support the many organisations who devise their own high quality learning programmes that are not part of the national Regulated Qualifications Framework (RQF).

The ALP service recognises, quality assures and certificates such learning programmes and has been designed to accredit individuals who have completed the structured learning and demonstrated achievement of specific learning outcomes.

By working with SFJ Awards, organisations can develop and implement learning programmes that adhere to a recognised quality assurance process. This results in a quality tailored training programme that remains the intellectual property of the organisation that has developed it, as well as providing increased confidence in the learning programme and ensuring learners have the right skills to do their jobs with proficiency.

What is Continuing Professional Development (CPD)?

CPD stands for Continuing Professional Development (CPD) and is the term used to describe the learning activities professionals engage in to develop and enhance their abilities. It enables learning to become conscious and proactive, rather than passive and reactive.

CPD combines different methodologies to learning, such as training workshops, conferences and events, e-learning programs, best practice techniques and ideas sharing, all focused for an individual to improve and have effective professional development. There are over 1000 institutes & professional bodies across the UK, a number that is forecast to increase.

Forensic Ecology CPD Webinar

The course will provide an understanding of the diverse disciplines that are represented within the specialist area of Forensic Ecology. The integration of these disciplines; such as botany (plants); entomology (insects); mycology (fungi) and sedimentology (soil) are essential in ensuring the ability to completely forensically exploit serious and major crime scenes. It will also introduce participants to the core principals and exemplar scenarios where focussed application of forensic ecology techniques is likely to be beneficial to the outcome of an investigation.

First 20 bookings using IGC20 as a coupon will receive a 20% discount.
