Before taking any course from any company always check the credentials of both the instructor(s) and the organization.

    • Have they ever been a police officer?
    • Have they ever investigated Technological or Internet files?
    • Have they ever been recognized as a court expert?
    • Have they ever received recognition for their investigations?
    • What exactly are they going to teach you?
    • Will their course material actually help you with your investigations?
