October 7 @ 8:00 am - October 11 @ 5:00 pm

October 7 – 11, 2024

Prerequisite:  Must have successfully completed the LEVA Level 1 course within the previous two years.  LEVA membership is NOT required.

Certification remains valid for three years and is renewable.

Upon successful completion of Level 2, students will receive a complimentary LEVA membership valid until the end of the 2024. Refer to the LEVA By-Law sections III and XVI for information regarding membership.

Course Overview:

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).

Location:   Calgary Police Service HQ, 5111 47 St NE, Calgary, AB T3J 3R2.
