LEVA Level 2: Digital Multimedia Evidence Processing: Bentonville, AR

September 16 @ 8:00 am - September 20 @ 5:00 pm

September 16 – 20, 2024

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

NOTEWORTHY: Following successful completion of the Level 1 and 2 LEVA courses, maintaining a current LEVA membership and performing video processing for at least one year, the student will receive LEVA certification as a Forensic Video Technician. 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 2025. 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: Walmart HQ’s Training and Development Campus located at 2403 J St., 2nd Floor, Room 237/236, Bentonville, Arkansas. Plenty of free parking.

You will need a government issued ID (driver’s license, etc.)  You will meet each day in the lobby prior to class and obtain an individual name badge for use in the building that day.

Instructors include: Detective Dean Brown, Detective M.T. Brown, Chris Andreacola, Jonathan Hak, KC., PhD.

LAB SYSTEMS: LEVA provides laptops with all needed software. Many have successfully completed the class who use a system or software other than the ones on LEVA Mobile Lab laptops. LEVA instruction team members guide students through necessary keystrokes during the class.

MEMBERS: Log-in to automatically receive the proper tuition rate.  Others select the SEND INVOICE payment option and the appropriate rate will be invoiced. For questions please contact troy.lawrence@leva.org.
