These Courses Cover:

Mobile Device Examinations

Typically containing a wealth of evidentiary information, and located in every subject's back pocket, conducting a proper mobile device exam is vital to modern-day digital investigations. This is typically going to be a Digital Forensic Examiner's bread and butter. In this course, we'll spend a lot of time building up your ability to do a quality mobile device examination.

Computer Forensics

Incorrectly handling a computer on a crime scene can easily result in lost or destroyed evidence. This course gives you the tools to confidently process evidence correctly the first time. This is the area of digital forensics where I most often see examiners making large mistakes that could potentially get the evidence thrown out. In this course, we'll build good habits and discuss common problems.

Incident Response

When a business becomes the victim of cybercrime, the local police department usually has jurisdiction. But do they have the capability to conduct that investigation? It depends. Did they take this course?

This is often the most time-consuming and multi-faceted type of investigation. In this course, we'll give you the skills you need to confidently perform a high-quality network examination.

Sensitive Site Exploitation

Sometimes you can't wait for the evidence to come to you. No, sometimes you have to go get it yourself. The balancing act between being a proficient operator and a professional scientist is tough. In this course, we'll talk about how to best approach that situation and how to achieve this balance quickly.

Crime Scene Investigation

It's important to process crime scenes systematically. Acquiring evidence incorrectly will likely negatively impact the rest of the forensic process. In this course, we'll discuss some important considerations when working on crime scenes either as part of a team, or as the sole technician.

Certification Preparation

In the fields of forensics, law enforcement, and information technology, certifications are vital. As your instructors, we hold multiple, high-level certifications in our fields and, in this course, we'll walk you through some of the most common ones and how to prepare for each.

Digital Investigations Pro is

01 / FAST

Let's be honest here: Most investigations training are 8 hours worth of material presented over 40 hours. That model doesn't work. We have a job to do. So, what if a few industry experts built a massive training library, packed it with high quality material, and then let people take it on their own schedule? Done.


Want a refresher on a specific process? Need to review a specific topic before court? You used to keep notes and slides from all of your old trainings somewhere in your office. What if you could access the actual lectures AND updated material within the course 24/7, from the phone in your pocket or the computer at your desk? Done.


Other forensics classes cost well over $3,000 per seat and only cover how to use the course provider's software tool. That's unacceptable. What if there was a certification course that didn't only teach someone a tool, but instead showed them how to effectively use the entire toolbox? Done.
