Forensic Computer Examiner
For many years, law enforcement officers have been the primary forensic computer examiners; however the need for qualified civilian forensic computer examiners is growing faster than ever. The Forensic Computer Examiner Online Training Program will help you break into this field by preparing you for the Certified Computer Examiner credential.

To enroll in this course, you’ll need to have basic computer skills, including the ability to work outside the Windows GUI interface. This is because forensic examiners often need data that can’t easily be accessed from within Windows. Being comfortable working within the DOS environment will be very helpful in this field.
A good measure of your readiness for this program is knowing that you can successfully complete the A+ certification through Microsoft. Note that the certification is by no means a prerequisite. However, the basic knowledge needed for success in this program typically requires that you have the A+ level of experience.
A forensic computer examiner will be required to work with the hardware of a computer on many occasions, so you’ll need to have the ability or desire to remove and replace hard-disk drives from computers and change jumper settings. These topics are briefly covered within our program, but you should have these skills prior to enrolling.
To work in this field, you must not have a criminal record. This includes any felony conviction where the individual could have received a sentence of one or more years of imprisonment. This also includes any criminal history of sexually related offenses, as many digital examinations include these topics, and an examiner with this type of history could be easily discredited.
