Crime Scene Cleanup Training

An Exciting Career Choice!

What is Crime Scene Cleanup?

It's a detailed process of removing blood and body fluids from a crime or trauma scene. Also referred to as Biohazard Remediation, the cleaning process involves the identification and removal of blood and body fluids following a criminal act, trauma related incident or accident. This service is provided after the body or injured person is removed from the scene. Technicians should attend a certified Crime Scene Cleanup Training Course and complete required OSHA courses before attempting to clean a crime or trauma scene.

Income Potential

Crime Scene Cleanup Technicians are paid anywhere from $25 to $55 per hour (or more), depending on their location. Companies can charge upwards of $200 or more per hour for biohazard remediation services. Charges for hoarding cleanup services are a bit less; however, the profit margin is still higher than one would typically see with a traditional cleaning company.

Why Should I Purchase this Course?

Bio-Trauma 911 was started in 2005. Three years later, in 2008, our crime scene cleanup training certification course was created. Over the past 15+ years, we've trained hundreds of new business owners and technicians. Our in-person course hosted in Indianapolis, Indiana is one of the only courses in the country that offers both classroom training and hands-on training. In addition, students can also take advantage of our online biohazard remediation course that offers the same certificate as our hands-on course. Each course offers a business module, forms, manuals and downloads. Students who go on to start their own business can also take advantage of our business support package.

What are the Training Topics

Whether you choose our online course of study or visit our training center in Indianapolis, Indiana, you'll receive instruction and certification in these areas: Types and uses of personal protective equipment - Various types and proper use of tools, equipment and chemicals - Methods of crime scene & trauma scene cleanup - Crime scene cleanup & local, state and federal guidelines and regulations - Blood borne pathogens and OSHA regulations & required training courses - Setting up and marketing your new business - Bidding, costs & profit margin - hands-on training - And, more! Our crime scene cleanup and biohazard remediation courses are certified with OSHA compliant training.

What is Your 2-Day Hands-on Course?

Both our in-person and online training course is divided into classroom work and hands-on training. In addition, we offer a 1-day business training module.

After we launched our online training course, we realized that our classroom training and business training can be done online. There's no reason for students to travel to Indianapolis, Indiana to sit in class for two days, when the same training can be done from the comfort of your own home. Through our online course, students can ask questions and interact with course instructors. In addition, our online course also offers hands-on training. However, this hands-on training is virtual and, although very thorough and comprehensive, some students prefer to be present in an interactive learning environment.

Starting in May 2023, we now offer a 2-day hands-on course in Indianapolis. This course is perfect for students who want to complete the classroom and business sections online and receive actual hands-on training that is both interactive and dynamic. Now, instead of spending money on a five day trip to Indiana, students only need to pay for a two-day trip. The cost savings on hotels and per diem add up to approximately $550.

If you're interested in working in the biohazard remediation industry as a crime scene cleanup technician or business owner, we recommend purchasing this course: Biohazard Remediation Training Bundle for $495. Then sign up for our 2-day hands-on course for $475. Between these two course options, you'll only pay $970. This option also provides the required OSHA training courses and two different certificates of completion.

Several Training Options to Choose From

Bio-Trauma 911, Inc. offers several different crime scene cleanup (biohazard remediation) training packages. Whether you're looking for in-person training, online training or a combination of the two, we've got you covered. Here's a lit of options to choose from:

1) A two-day hands-on training course in Indianapolis, Indiana. This course offers in-depth, hands-on instruction in the use of power tools, chemicals and techniques to remediate crime and trauma scenes. Each student will have two real-life scenes, complete with furniture, bedding, flooring, personal effects and blood (from a cow). Each scene will represent a homicide or suicide. Students will be tasked with remediating their scenes, with assistance and instruction from our training staff.

2) A four-day classroom and hands-on training course in Indianapolis, Indiana. Receive two days of classroom training that covers federal regulations, OSHA standards, bidding the job, decontamination, deconstruction, terminology, biohazard waste disposal and more. Following two days of classroom instruction, students spend two days inside our hands-on training environment. Information about this 2 day block of instruction can be found in line item #1 above.

3) A five-day classroom and hands-on training course with business training on day 5. Students receive everything outlined in line item #2 above with the addition of business training. During our business module, students learn everything from choosing the right type of business structure to creating estimates & invoices. Our business module will walk each student through every aspect of running a successful biohazard remediation business.

4) A complete online training course that covers all of the classroom materials provided in our in-person training course. Our online program also provides for business training and OSHA certified training. In addition our online program covers our hands-on training in a virtual environment. While this portion of our training is a suitable way to teach students the proper way to approach, evaluate and remediate a crime or trauma scene, it's not the same as doing it in a real-life setting. To solve this issue, many student pair up our online training with the 2-day hands-on training in line item #1 above. This gives students the ability to complete most of the training from the comfort of their own home while still getting experience in a hands-on dynamic learning environment.

Compulsive Hoarding

It is estimated that there are as many as 19 million hoarders in the United States. Compulsive hoarding is a condition that often times requires the help of companies in this industry. While crime scene cleanup and biohazard remediation is what we may specialize in, hoarding cleanup should be a service you offer.

Biohazard Remediation

The FBI reports that in 2021there were 694,050 violent-crime incidents and 22,900 murders in 2021. When you add to these numbers the accidents that involve blood and body fluids, there are well over one million scenes throughout the USA that may need the services of a biohazard remediation company.

Classroom Training

Certified crime scene cleanup training (which includes biohazards & hoarding) may be best achieved in a classroom environment. Although this training does require you to travel to Indiana for a five day course, the experience is well worth the time and money. For more information, please follow the links above for our crime scene cleanup training outline, costs, dates and reservation information.

Online Training

Over the years, we’ve been asked to create an online version of our crime scene cleanup training course. For over 18 months, we filmed and edited hours and hours of footage, presentations & instruction. In late 2022, we were proud to launch our course through an online learning environment called Thinkific. Through this platform, our students receive video instruction, quizzes, downloadable forms and documents and certificates of completion. To learn more about this course, please click the link below.
