The Champlain College Workforce Development Center receives many calls from individuals interested in becoming a Computer Forensic Examiner. Is Champlain College’s online CCE BootCamp® a fast-track to a new and exciting career?
The good news is that there are no “official” prerequisites or certifications needed to participate in CCE BootCamp®. However, the most successful attendees are currently working in the computer forensics field, have had training in the field, or possess extremely strong computer skills. Despite the word "BootCamp," it is not a training course as much as it is an exam preparation course. The hands-on skills are outlined at http://www.certified-computer-examiner.com/skill.htm
Next, take a look at the agenda to see if the topics are familiar to you. Also, take a look at the International Society of Forensic Computer Examiners (ISFCE) website to see if you fit the criteria for CCE Certification & take the practice test. You don’t need to know all the answers, but if the majority of the terminology is unfamiliar, then attending CCE BootCamp® would be arduous.
