Board Level Repair


This course was developed with the ever-changing field of digital forensics in mind. No longer can we rely on just commercial tools and automated processes. Now more than ever, it is important to be able to diagnose inoperable devices and perform device repairs at the board level so we can obtain our data extractions.


This is a test


This class is open to all digital forensic professionals. While there are no prerequisites, it is recommended that attendees have a familiarity with basic mobile device repair.

Due to the sensitive nature of our curriculum, and industry, all potential students are subject to vetting prior to enrollment. We reserve the right to refuse registration to any person that does not meet our established criteria.
