LEVA Level 1

The course is a mixture of lecture and hands on with many practical exercises with equipment likely to be encountered in the field using tools currently available. Students will obtain the skills and knowledge needed to properly acquire this type of video evidence, glean information from the evidence, and accurately distribute the information obtained.

LEVA Level 2

This course builds on the concepts of the Level 1. There is a significant, specific skill set that investigators need to PROPERLY handle and process the digital multimedia evidence (DME) that gets collected.
