LEVA Runs Special Class for Kazakhstan Ministry of Justice

Students from Kazakhstan's Ministry of Justice completed an exclusive LEVA class that was delivered in Istanbul, Turkey.


Scott Sullivan, LEVA's Mobile Lab Manager, traveled to Istanbul with LEVA equipment to support the class taught by LEVA Level 1 instructors Dean Brown, M.T. Brown and Ed Baker. Amy Hak managed technical issues. The course ran six hours each day for seven consecutive days. 

The class was arranged and coordinated with Dana Dyussenova (pictured above) of  KAZGUU University,                Nur-Sultan, Kazakhstan.

LEVA continues to plan and conduct virtual classes as the pandemic will cross well into 2021.
