LEVA has just wrapped up three highly successful weeks of training in Singapore. This is the second deployment of LEVA personnel and equipment there. The first series of classes were held in 2013.Add a comment
Effective January 1, 2015, LEVA will feature four levels of core courses.
Basically, the 'Photographic Video Comparison' class will be designated as Level 3. The 'Advanced Forensic Video Analysis & the Law' class, currently referred to as Level 3, will become Level 4.
These are not new courses. Also, there is no impact on those who already graduated from earlier Comparison and Advanced classes.
Previously, one could take the Comparison course at any time. Now, it can only be taken after successful completion of Levels 1 and 2. And the new Level 3 must be completed before taking the Level 4 Advanced course.
Instructors have spent a great deal of time to develop a seamless yet powerful curricula that heightens skills dramatically at each step.
- Level 1: Forensic Video Analysis & the Law
- Level 2: Digital Multimedia Evidence Processing
- Level 3: Photographic Video Comparison
- Level 4: Advanced Forensic Video Analysis & the Law
More information can be found on the LEVA website under the 'Training' tab and 'Upcoming Training Events'.
Mark your calendars and submit those training requests to attend LEVA’s 26th annual video evidence symposium in Clearwater Beach, Florida, November 2 – 6.
LEVA is the ONLY organization in the world providing a full week of formidable training in a symposium environment for the digital multimedia evidence community. And ALL of the training hours can be credited toward LEVA forensic video certifications.Add a comment
The United Kingdom’s Chartered Society of Forensic Sciences (CSoFS) invited LEVA to its annual conference in Leicester on November 7, 2014. The invitation was to begin discussions on creating a partnership for the delivery of training leading to formal accreditation in forensic video analysis in the UK.
All UK practitioners in video analysis are now required to achieve accreditation by October 2017. It is proposed that CSoFS and LEVA develop a program that fills a training gap that meets the requirements of the UK’s Criminal Justice System.Add a comment
