Within this role he has written and assisted in the facilitation of the National DVI ADVIC funded training courses for the last five years, including Phase Coordinators, Commander level, and two Body Farm Practitioner courses.

Snr Sgt Callaghan will talk about the DVI process in Australia and internationally and will discuss collaboration and  training with the AFP at the Body Farm, AFTER (Australian Facility for Taphonomic Experimental Research).
