LEVA Level 2: Digital Multimedia Evidence Processing

NOTEWORTHY: Following successful completion of the Level 1 and 2 LEVA courses, holding a current LEVA membership and performing video processing for at least one year, the student will receive LEVA certification as a Forensic Video Technician. Certification remains valid for three years and is renewable.

Strongly encourage registering as soon as possible. LEVA courses sell out before the registration cutoff date.

Course Overview:

The LEVA Level 2 course builds on the concepts of the LEVA Level 1 course. The public expectation today is that if a crime occurs, there will be video/audio of the incident. There is a significant, specific skill set that investigators need to PROPERLY handle and process the digital multimedia evidence that gets collected. If the DME is not handled and processed carefully, according to best practices, the video/audio might not be interpreted accurately. This course exposes students to more advanced theory and hands-on techniques that conform to the Best Practices for the Acquisition and Processing of Digital Multimedia Evidence (DME).

Class begins each day at 8 AM.  On Friday, class will be dismissed by 3:30 PM.

LOCATION: The course will be hosted by the Nottinghamshire Police and held in partnership at Nottingham Trent University, 50 Shakespeare Street, Nottingham NG1 4FQ.

LEVA Membership

LEVA membership is NOT required to attend Level 2.

 

Credits and Certificate:

LEVA will also issue a certificate to each student who attends the course.

Students not seeking Certification may receive a Certificate of Attendance without taking the final course written examination.

 

  • At any time during the course, a student may elect not to take the final exam or may choose not to accept the results of the final exam. Students who elect either choice are eligible to retake the exam.
  • Only those students, who achieve a passing grade in the course, including the final exam, will receive a Certificate of Completion. All others will receive a Certificate of Attendance.
  • Students must achieve a Certificate of Completion in lower level courses in order to be eligible to write a higher-level exam.
  • Students, who ‘opt-out’ of the course exam for any reason, may elect to write the exam at any regularly scheduled LEVA exam time offered at the University of Indianapolis during any of the core courses or the LEVA Annual Training Conference.
  • The rescheduled exam must be taken within twelve months of the course taken.
  • Students may retake an exam only once.  If a passing score is not achieved, the student must retake the course.

Essential Disclaimer

For the purpose of meeting the course objectives, LEVA instructors will employ a variety of video technologies during instruction. However, the LEVA program material does not endorse any single technology, and therefore, in depth instruction on any specific tool is not provided.  Regarding non-linear editors, such as Avid Media Composer and Adobe Premiere, both are on laptops of LEVA’s Mobile Lab. During practical exercises, students can use either one. LEVA recommends that students obtain vendor specific training, based on their agency’s needs.

Graduates of the course receive a LEVA certificate indicating successful completion of the 40-hour curriculum. That certificate should NOT be interpreted as a certification of any type. The graduate must refer to this training as LEVA's on their resume, CV or any discoverable document.  This class is not conducted to officially endorse any product or service.
