2024 Orlando Training Event Dates

April 22 – May 3, 2024


IACIS has been providing computer Forensic Training for over 30 years. IACIS BCFE instructors and trainers are Certified Forensic Computer Examiners (CFCE) and are active in the field of computer forensics. All IACIS training material is reviewed and updated each year by our trainers to ensure that IACIS training material is relevant and up to date in order to meet the changing needs of digital forensic examiners

For more than three decades, IACIS has been one of the premier providers for digital forensic training.  Our instructors and trainers possess exceptional skills, with the majority of our team holding one or more IACIS certifications such as Certified Forensic Computer Examiner (CFCE), Certified Advanced Windows Forensic Examiner (CAWFE), or Certified Mobile Device Examiner (ICMDE). They actively participate in the dynamic field of digital forensics, ensuring their expertise remains up to date. We take pride in reviewing and refreshing our training materials annually, in collaboration with our trainers. This commitment guarantees that IACIS training remains pertinent and aligned with the evolving requirements of digital forensic examiners. Currently, we offer the following classes to accomplish this objective.

IACIS Basic Computer Forensic Examiner (BCFE) – The goal of IACIS BCFE training is for students to learn and to stress that no student is left behind. Classes combine computer forensic theory and hands-on practical exercises and have a 6/8:1 student to trainer ratio.  While an instructor teaches a class, the trainers are always present to assist. This allows for trainers to be immediately available to answer questions which arise during instruction.  Trainers monitor their student’s progress to ensure each student understands the material being taught and is keeping pace with the class.

There are no pre-requisites for the BCFE training. Any computer knowledge a student brings to class is a benefit and will make the lectures and practical exercises much easier to grasp.  The class begins with the basics and quickly moves into highly technical theories, terms, and techniques. The BCFE provides 90% of what the student will need to know to successfully complete the almost seven-month CFCE process. The BCFE Course has optional evening computer labs for those requiring additional hands-on time.   Students who go on to undertake the CFCE certification process are provided a coach to help them with the peer review problem sets.

IACIS Specialized classes – The IACIS Specialized classes provide a more in-depth study of specific forensic topics with two of the classes being preparation for additional certifications.  The IACIS Windows Forensic Examiner and Mobile Device Examiner prepare students for Certified Advanced Windows Forensic Examiner (CAWFE) and Certified Mobile Device Examiner (ICMDE) certifications with the cost of the certification included in the course fee.
