“My training with NW3C was instrumental in my promotion to Digital Evidence Examiner. I am confident that I would not have been prepared for the promotional process without the instruction of NW3C.” -Raleigh, North Carolina

“The knowledge I have gained from NW3C courses about digital forensics has been helpful in understanding and comfort level when working on various video capture and storage devices (whether they are DVRs/NVRs or PC-based surveillance systems). This course has made me more comfortable working with PC-based surveillance (CCTV) systems.” – Indianapolis, Indiana
