Online Autopsy Forensics Tool Training Sept. 24, 2014


Learn about the ins and outs of Autopsy 3 from the team that develops Autopsy.

By popular demand, we are offering our first online, instructor-led Autopsy 3 training course on Wednesday, Sept. 24, 2014 – Thursday Sept. 25, 2014. The course will be much like our popular 2-day classes held in Herndon, VA and at the annual Open Source Digital Forensics Conference (OSDFCon). We hope the flexibility of online delivery will be an attractive option for those whose travel budgets have restricted their attendance in the past. The online course is worth 12 CPE credits.
