Internet Examiner Certification
Internet Examiner Certified Examiner (IECE)
The IECA certification process was introduced in response to many users wanting to be formally recognized for their proficiency in the use of the Internet Examiner software, especially for court purposes.
Users who attend our 3-Day instructor-led hands-on training course will appreciate the true complexity of Internet cache mapping systems and how Internet Examiner investigates and interprets these encoded repositories of evidence.
In order to pursue the IECA designation, candidates must be licensed users of Internet Examiner AND attend the "Advanced Internet Forensics" training course. The IECA process involves a 1-hour examination that is administered at the end of Day 3 of the course.
What’s involved in the examination?
Candidates must answer a series of multiple choice questions using a combination of knowledge and skills that were developed over the 3-days. The examination itself is done electronically and employs the use of in-class training materials as well as the Internet Examiner program itself. A mark of 80% or higher is required to qualify for the IECE designation. Test results are provided immediately upon completion.
Candidates who are successful at completing the IECA examination will received a Certificate of Certification that will be valid for 2 years from the date of issue. Renewal requirements are still being developed but will reflect common practices by other vendors in the industry.
What does it cost?
The Internet Examiner Certification examination is only available to course attendees and is provided at no additional cost. Individuals who do not pass the first examination can choose to re-write the test, online, at their leisure. An administration fee of $195 USD is required for each re-write.
