On-Line Micro-learning Portal

Apex Learning is proud to present many of our courses on-line in a true micro-learning format. Our Statistics for Forensic Analysis and our Redaction courses will be the first out of the gate. Click here for more information on our micro-learning options.

Standards-Based Training

ASTM E2659-09 (Standard Practice for Certificate Programs) informs our process of creating, delivering, and recording training to competency. We’ve followed these guidelines and policies in creating the offerings that we deliver across the width and breadth of the digital forensic sciences.
Our training staff includes POST instructors and curriculum designers who develop our courses with the POST learner in mind. Learn the what, how, and why of this complex evidence type.

What is Forensic Science? Forensic science, regardless of the specific discipline, is the systematic and coherent study of traces to address questions of authentication, identification, classification, reconstruction, and evaluation for a legal context.

What is a trace? A trace is any modification, subsequently observable, resulting from an event.

Mobile Device Forensics: the science of identifying, collecting, preserving, documenting, examining, and analyzing evidence from mobile or small scale digital devices, the results of which may be relied upon in court.

Digital Video Recorders (DVR) / Network Video Recorders (NVR): depending on the request and the circumstnaces, the processing and analysis of information from DVRs or NVRs can full under the computer, digital forensics, or mobile forensics domains.

Computer Forensics: the science of identifying, collecting, preserving, documenting, examining, and analyzing evidence from computer systems, networks, and other electronic devices, the results of which may be relied upon in court.

Digital Forensics: the science of identifying, collecting, preserving, documenting, examining, and analyzing evidence from computer systems, the results of which may be relied upon in court.

Forensic Multimedia Analysis: the systematic and coherent study of traces within multimedia evidence to address questions of authentication, identification, classification, reconstruction, and evaluation for a legal context. May include the individual subdisciplines of Forensic Video Analysis, Forensic Image Analysis, and/or Forensic Audio Analysis.

The Domains of Forensic Multimedia Analysis: the domains of forensic multimedia analysis include Authentication, Comparative Analysis, Content Analysis, and Photogrammetry.

Competency Based Training: because of the overlap that exists across the digital and multimedia domains, it is often preferable to focus first on a broad baseline of training that includes both the acquisition of evidence as well as the analysis of that is collected. Analysts can then dive into the depths of specific domains of analysis. Whilst other programs focus on tool-specific training that is more "show and tell" than training to competnecy, we focus on providing students with a meaningful pathway to mastery of the subject matter.
