Welcome SCIS NIPT Students!

On behalf of Visit Fairfax and the entire tourism industry throughout Fairfax County, VA, I would like to extend a warm and hearty welcome to all students of SCIS’ New Investigative Personnel Training program.

I know you’ll be very busy with your training, but when there’s downtime, I encourage you to experience everything our county has to offer.  You’ll find plenty to enjoy, including world-class attractions, one-of-a-kind shopping experiences, wonderful craft breweries and wineries, and extensive dining options.

And we’re located just minutes from our nation’s capital, Washington, D.C., brimming with monuments, memorials, and museums.  Many of these attractions offer free admission and are easily reached by Metro.

To help you plan your trip and activities, please click the links on the drop-down menu to the right of this page, and take time browsing the rest of our website for other useful information.  If you have any questions during your stay with us, please send us an email or simply pick up the phone and call us at 1-800-732-4732 during our Visitor Center’s hours. Feel free to follow us on social media for other fun suggestions of things to do: @VisitFairfax and #FXVA.
