anyone Accessdata Ace Certified?

Post Posted: Tue Jun 02, 2009 11:48 pm

I am considering trying the Accessdata Ace Certification process. I was wondering if anyone has completed it and if so could provide some tips on how / what to study to pass the KBA and PSA portions.
Thank you

Do you have any other certifications? Is this going to be your examination software of choice that you will be submitting reports from? Are you paying for the training out of pocket or is an employer compensating? I do not mean to Tommy Gun questions, just what is the reason you would consider that product certification?

we currently use FTK and that is all we having funding to purchase. I currently have no other certifications and from reading the Accessdata website ACE certification is now free of charge. So that is why I'm considering trying to get certified. The training I've gotten so far is Accessdata's bootcamp, NW3C's basic and intermediate data recovery. So I was wondering if that is enough to give the certification a shot.

ACE used to require (or at least highly recommend) the BootCamp and Windows Forensics classes, I do not see that requirement any longer.

Are you pretty comfortable working with FTK? If not there are a couple of 1 day online ACE prep classes coming up on 7/1 and 10/2.

Just remember - NOTHING is really free. They will certify you now, but you have to take THEIR classes later to keep your cert.

thanks for all of the replies. I agree that nothing is really free and Accessdata will probably require classes to stay certified, but I'm willing to take the risk to at least say that I was certified, but could maintain it based on cost. In regards to how well I know the program, I hope I'm doing well. I've processed several cases, and watched all of the webinars and on most of the cases, I've found evidence items that I was looking for.
