Kansas Division IAI

Welcome to the website of the Kansas Division of the International Association for Identification!  We are a division of the oldest and largest forensic association in the world.  This professional association represents a diverse, knowledgeable and experienced membership that are assembled to educate, share, critique and publish methods, techniques and research in the physical forensic science disciplines.


Certification has become a growing necessity in the field of law enforcement and forensic science. In an attempt to encourage IAI certification, the KDIAI is introducing an application fee reimbursement program. This program allows members that are not able to have the IAI certification application fee paid for by their agency still have a chance to apply for certification.

KDIAI will reimburse $200 of the application fee for a new certification (program does not apply to re-certifications). There will be one reimbursement offered per year. The selected applicant will be chosen by the KDIAI scholarship committee and the Certification Chair.

Terms of KDIAI Certification Fee Reimbursement Program

  1. Must be a KDIAI Member in good standing for at least two full years
  2. Must provide documentation that certification application fees will not be paid for by another agency, ie. letter from supervisor on agency letterhead
  3. Copy of certification application to include letters of recommendation
  4. Cover letter to include reasoning for obtaining certification
  5. Documentation of successful completion of the certification process

Please forward the above materials by December 31, 2016 to:
