Katherine Koppenhaver’s course, Forensic Document Examination
Interactive Training Program, is a worthwhile investment both in time and in money, especially for
aspiring document examiners. It is thorough, well organized, thought provoking, and challenging where
the student earns his or her grade. Students are assigned an experienced and personable document examiner
as a mentor who provides one-on-one assistance. The course covers all aspects of the examination of
documents and the business of document examination. Upon completion, the student is well prepared to
begin a career in document examination. This course, in combination with Ms. Koppenhaver’s weekly
on-line course---Document Examination Continuation Lectures---makes this the most comprehensive
document examination training available. As a novice document examiner, a Certified Fraud Examiner,
and veteran criminal investigator I am thoroughly impressed by Ms. Koppenhaver and her training program.
Sincerely, Frank J. Panepinto, FDE, CFE, CPP Chief Fraud Investigator
"I am just finishing up Kathie's
forensic document course and can tell anyone that it is excellent.
There are many actual case studies and it seems she prepares the
student for just about everything (not speaking from experience yet).
The lessons are very well written and prepared. Very
complete and well done." I.C.
"I can also recommend this course which I am just finishing. Her books
are excellent too, and she is a charming and well respected Document
"Thanks for the notes. I really enjoyed your session. It was my first time with this
technology, which I found very easy to use once I started. I'm glad I attended. I felt a nice sense of camaraderie!
You covered a wide range of educational levels from beginner to advanced. The illustrations were really helpful
because the images were so large. Your points of illustration were easy to see. I would enjoy a class in How to
Illustrate Observations - a take off from your book on Demonstrative Exhibits.
Regards for now." J.J., Board Centified Document Examiner
"I'm impressed. Your class was very professional and informative. Thank you for letting me sit in on it.
