This is not a "watered down" training course. Not like other courses, we tell you in detail what we cover during the course and what our experience and expertise is. We have a great training course, great material, experienced instructors and we truly want you to learn the material and to become good forensic examiners. We want you to compare and decide what is best for you.
You will be provided well developed, detailed handouts of the course material. The course contains a number of practical exercise problems in the form of specially prepared diskettes or a hard disk drive that must be examined. The practical exercises will reinforce the material and teach "hands-on" skills. A case scenario will be used where a fictional private investigator brings you, the examiner, each diskette or a hard disk drive for examination. Each diskette will build to the next exercise, until finally a hard disk drive is examined and the case is concluded. Real life computer forensic issues will be covered by the practical exercises.
Clear, concise, accurate reports that draw appropriate conclusions are a very important factor in presenting the results of a forensic examination. We require reports detailing each "practical exercise" examination. We critically review your reports as if we were the "other side" and will help you develop excellent report writing skills. Your final reports can be used as your "template" for real examinations.
Our instructors are all Certified Forensic Computer Examiners or Certified Computer Examiners (CCE)® who are currently involved in computer forensic examinations. They will coach and tutor you through the practical exercises, your reports and through the test questions for each module. Our instructors are highly qualified, experienced and understand forensic examinations far beyond the material in this course. Your interaction with your instructor will normally be via email, but direct assistance is sometimes available for setup issues. We truly want you to learn the material and to become a good forensic examiner.
