New Mobile Forensic Fast Track Training Gives Examiners More Info in Less Time

Tuesday, March 18, 2014 (12:04:59)
Paraben Corporation has announced a new training course for mobile forensic examiners that combines two levels of training into one content heavy course.

“We want to make sure we optimize the time existing mobile examiners spend in training. This combined Fast Track course will give them all the fundamental and advanced smart phone knowledge to be able to tackle an examination on any type of device,” explained Amber Schroader, CEO of Paraben Corporation.

Paraben’s Mobile Forensic Fast Track training course combines two weeks of training into one 5 day course replacing the need to attend both Mobile Forensics Level 1 and 2. Examiners attending the course still have the opportunity to apply for the PCME (Paraben Certified Mobile Examiner) certification to help with their qualifications as a mobile forensic specialist. Details on the course outline and requirements can be found on the Paraben training website at training.paraben.com.

I would like to make meaningful contributions to the legal arena in this respect...
