Advanced Acquisition Vehicle Forensics

Digital Forensic Training

About Our NEW Advanced Acquisition Vehicle Forensics Training

This in-depth 5-day training course will provide students with an elevated understanding of advanced acquisition and decoding techniques of data recovered from vehicle infotainment and navigation systems, as well as other electronic control units, using advanced data recovery and decoding techniques like Chip-off and ISP.

What You Will Learn

Join us and discover the vast amounts of data that can be recovered from automotive infotainment and navigation systems and learn how your findings can be applied to your case or investigation.

The course curriculum consists of:

  • Instructor Lectures,
  • Hands-On Demonstrations,
  • and Practical Exercises.

Our goal is to maximize your experience by providing you with hands-on exercises that include:

  • The removal of memory chips from circuit boards and performing the non-destructive In-System Programming (ISP) to recover data for decoding,
  • Demonstrate Chip-Off data acquisition techniques for vehicles and systems that may have been damaged due to collision, fire, or water damage.

The intent of this course is to provide options to forensics examiners that go above and beyond the scope of the Berla iVe.

Who Should Attend:

  • Digital Forensic Examiners, Automobile Theft Detectives, Crash Investigators
  • Individuals and teams looking to learn the skills required to recover and analyze data from automobile navigation and infotainment systems
  • Individuals and teams looking to gain the hands-on skills to remove chips from boards, as well as solder to perform ISP and other extraction methods
  • Individuals and teams looking to get a better understanding of how to decode the proprietary file formats obtained from automobiles for analysis in Berla, X-ways and other digital forensic tools.

Students Receive:

• A collection of data decoding software.
• Teel Technologies Advanced Acquisition Vehicle Forensics Certification


• A fundamental understanding of digital forensics background is useful.
• Willingness to learn concepts and techniques to recover data.
• Patience and a steady hand!

*While not a prerequisite, it is recommended that students have a basic understanding of JTAG, Chip-Off, and ISP processes, as it will assist them in grasping some of the techniques covered in this fast-paced class.
