Laundry Exec Earns ‘Forensic Consultant’ Status
Fred Anderson, vice president, operations, Pilgrim Mat Services, Tucker, GA, recently enhanced his ability to defend textile service companies against personal injury lawsuits involving mats by earning the Certified Forensic Consultant® designation from the American College of Forensic Examiners Institute®, according to a news release.
“This course was to support my previous ANSI Accredited Walkway Certificate Holder designation and assist our industry in defending trip-and-fall claims with floor mats,” Anderson said.
The CFC program recognizes a forensic consultant’s training, experience and dedication to the highest standards in the American judicial system, the release said. Forensic consultants are well-trained forensic specialists who often are brought into civil and criminal court cases to provide objective analysis, expert opinions and specialized knowledge of evidence.
The CFC course and examination prepares the forensic consultant to succeed in court by covering a diverse range of related topics, including professional ethics, writing error-proof reports, preparing interrogatories and deposition testimony, presenting testimonial evidence and opinions, and comporting with jurisdictional rules.
The CFC designation contributes to the weight of testimony that a forensic professional presents, and it helps verify the validity of the evidence presented, the application of specialized knowledge to the facts in a case and the relevance of the evidence to the issues in the case.
