Forensic Video Certification Program by LEVA
LEVA training vs Ocean Systems training
Ocean Systems training focuses specifically on how to operate your dTective forensic video clarification system, while the LEVA training provides a path to certification. The LEVA classes cover broader topics such as: The Forensic Mindset, Video and the Law, Digital CCTV Systems, Video Recovery, and Ethics for the Expert Witness.
Which should I take first?
It is recommended you take the dTective training prior to the LEVA training since the dTective training provides you the details on how to use the tools.
The Law Enforcement & Emergency Services Video Association is a non-profit organization run by law enforcement for the explicit purpose of training agency video experts. About 50% of the course hours are taught in a hands-on environment in the lab where they use 20 systems. The other half of the course is taught in the classroom and consists of lectures focused on the law, report writing, videotape recovery and SOP development.
LEVA Training Certification
LEVA will confer Certified Forensic Video Technician (CFVT) status on students who have performed video evidence processing for at least 1 year and successfully complete its four core courses within a six-year period. Once you are a Certified Technician, you can continue on a path to becoming a Certified Forensic Video Analyst.
