LEVA Level 2: Digital Multimedia Evidence Processing
Strongly encourage registering as soon as possible. LEVA courses sell out before the registration cutoff date.
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).
Instructors: Deputy Sheriff Scott Kuntz, Detective Ed Baker (Ret) and Jonathan Hak, QC.
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, School of Science & Technology, Clifton Lane, Nottingham NG11 8NS.
Public Safety Price is just USD $1,675!

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.
