As LEVA’s Technician and Analyst certification numbers grow, the LEVA Board has approved a new position to manage key functions within the program effective January 1, 2017.
Roger Cain, Certified Forensic Analyst for the Rocky Mountain Information Network in Phoenix, has enthusiastically volunteered to take on this new role of Certification Program Manager.
Roger’s #1 initial priority is to improve the mentoring process. Mentors are those LEVA Analysts who are selected to guide those who apply for Analyst certification. That guidance consists of maintaining close contact with the candidate, encouragement, suggestions and ensuring the case report submitted to the Certification Committee meets the threshold.
Also, new submissions for entry to the Analyst path will go to Roger and he will be the point of contact for questions dealing with the program.
Executive Director Jan Garvin proposed the position to allow him more time to devote to scheduling and managing all LEVA training including the annual video evidence symposiums. Jan has administered the certification program since its inception in 2002. His position will still retain oversight of the all facets of the certification program.
LEVA thanks Roger for his energy and commitment in assuming this new responsibility.
