Review: Oxygen Forensic Complete Training

Tuesday, August 23, 2016 (10:58:12)
Reviewed by Brad Robin


This review will be based solely on the Oxygen Forensic Complete Training class that occurred in Lafayette, Louisiana between April 19-21, 2016.

Coming into this class my knowledge of the Oxygen Forensic Detective program was very limited.

This is why I am an advocate of being trained on the software you actually use in your day to day investigations.
