Ideal Innovations reveals details of face identification course

Arlington-based biometrics and identity firm Ideal Innovations (I3) has revealed more details about a facial identification course it started earlier this year.

The firm launched a facial identification training course in July aimed at developing and improving the skill sets of the individuals tasked with conducting facial examinations and comparisons.

Such skills are increasingly important as law enforcement officers around the world are being tasked with making critical identification decisions, notes I3. An incorrect ID decision could result in a criminal evading capture, an innocent person facing undue persecution, or even the difference between life and death.

I3 noted this week the training course was developed and is conducted by Lora Sims, who is chairman of both the Facial Identification Scientific Working Group (FISWG) and of the Facial Identification Subcommittee of the Organization of Scientific Area Committees (OSAC). The programme reflects the latest thinking and procedures that will be incorporated into the forthcoming certification of face examiners by the International Association for Identification, says I3.  

I3 also reported that it has successfully completed a 10-day facial identification training course for the Australian government. 

I3 Chief Operating Officer, Richard Syretz, says “With the rapid growth in adoption of facial recognition systems, this training provides an excellent avenue for the examiner to take their skill sets to the next level. “
