Cellebrite, the leading developer and provider of mobile forensic solutions, today announced the launch of a new training and certification program. The new program delivers a higher quality, standardized mobile forensics training curriculum, culminating in a formal Cellebrite Certified Mobile Examiner (CCME) credential. The program empowers mobile forensic, investigative, and intelligence professionals in law enforcement, military, and corporate environments to employ mobile forensics best practices in their everyday work, and when applicable, to defend their practices with confidence in a court of law.

Cellebrite is the first to offer three different delivery models — classroom-based training, live online training, and self-paced online training — that improve Cellebrite customers' access to training that meets their budgetary, scheduling and learning style requirements. All classes will be available across all three delivery models. Instructor-led classroom training is immediately available, and online classes were made available in late 2013.

In recognition of the worldwide demand for effective mobile forensic training, Cellebrite recently retained industry veteran Buddy Tidwell to develop and deliver the comprehensive mobile forensic training curriculum.  Under Tidwell's direction, the training will be delivered with four components and three certification levels.

  1. An 8-hour training course covering the fundamentals of digital evidence on mobile devices will focus on how mobile phones and other devices store data, and the best practices to use to isolate and preserve the data in preparation for legally defensible extraction and analysis.
  2. A 16-hour training course covering logical extraction and analysis, focused on rapid responders who need actionable intelligence from a variety of handsets in varying environmental conditions, will culminate in the Cellebrite Certified Logical Operator (CCLO) credential.
  3. A 24-hour training course covering physical extraction, decoding and analysis, focused on all the features and functions of the UFED Physical Analyzer software, will culminate in a Cellebrite Certified Physical Analyst (CCPA) credential.
  4. After earning the CCLO and CCPA credentials, trainees will be eligible to test their knowledge of all three domains. Written and practical exams will evaluate information retention and the ability to use the full range of features comprised by Cellebrite mobile forensics tools. Following successful completion of these exams, the trainee is eligible to earn the Cellebrite Certified Mobile Examiner (CCME) credential, administered directly by Cellebrite and available in the fourth quarter. Customers who hold legacy certifications will be eligible for equivalency testing to obtain their CCME.

"In keeping with our mission to set the industry standard for mobile forensics, we identified the need for a world class training program that not only standardizes mobile forensic processes using our UFED tools, but also meets our customers' requirements for a high-quality curriculum and flexible delivery models," said Buddy Tidwell, Director of Worldwide Training, Cellebrite. "We are confident that students that obtain the CCME certification will have the skills they need to ensure the accuracy of investigations and operations that rely on mobile forensic data."

Cellebrite piloted the new curriculum throughout the summer, delivering each of the classes to nearly 50 forensic professionals. "Cellebrite's training exceeded my expectations for a class that could deliver its material clearly and in a way that I could put to immediate use in my work," said Doug Erkkila, a detective with the Sault Ste. Marie (Ontario, Canada) Police Department who participated in one class in June. "Aside from learning the product, I learned a lot about mobile forensics, which after 10 years I've found is growing faster than computer forensics. With the information I received in the 3-day Cellebrite Certified Physical Analyst course, I got a lot of training for the time and price, and can now utilize features and processes that help me obtain better quality evidence and intelligence. This is a course that I would recommend to a new technical investigator to bring him or her up to speed."

To deliver the new curriculum, Cellebrite is relying on both internal training staff and authorized training partners (ATPs) who have been certified and trained by Cellebrite.
