The LEVA Level 2 course builds on the concepts of the LEVA Level 1 course. The public expectation today is that if a crime occurs, there will be video/audio of the incident. There is a significant, specific skill set that investigators need to PROPERLY handle and process the digital multimedia evidence that gets collected. If the DME is not handled and processed carefully, according to best practices, the video/audio might not be interpreted accurately. This course exposes students to more advanced theory and hands-on techniques that conform to the Best Practices for the Acquisition and Processing of Digital Multimedia Evidence (DME).
Instructors: Scott Kuntz, Detective Ed Baker (Ret) and Jonathan Hak, QC.
Who Can Apply?
Applicants must have successfully completed LEVA’s “Level 1: Forensic Video Analysis & the Law” course.
- Employees of any international, federal, state/provincial, or local public safety agency including the Dept. of Defense and Dept. of Homeland Security, may apply. Also, students currently enrolled in a bonafide college or university criminal justice program. An applicant for educational pricing should be either a person who is a full-time instructor at a nationally accredited educational facility or is a full-time student. Neither can be employed in the imaging industry. *Tuition rate is below.
- A select number of seats are available to the private sector (for-profit businesses) who successfully completed LEVA’s Level 1 course noted above. LEVA recognizes that private for-profit businesses occasionally assist law enforcement in the creation or processing of video evidence; therefore. Private sector applicants must obtain a current national criminal background check and attach the results to the course application. Private sector applicants must be able to demonstrate that a significant percentage of their current work responsibility involves processing video images on behalf of law enforcement, government or prosecutorial agencies. With the exception of those applicants who supply video analysis services or CCTV equipment, other private sector applicants whose responsibilities include the development, sales or marketing of products or services to law enforcement will not be considered.

Students not seeking Certification may receive a Certificate of Attendance without taking the final course written examination.
- If any element is failed during course Levels 1, 2 or 3 requiring retesting, just the affected element(s) may be retested if the student requests it.
