Forensic examiner coaches law enforcement agents, supports CFCE training by
providing volunteer coaching
SOUTHFIELD, Mich., May 9 /PRNewswire/ -- The Center for Computer Forensics (CCF) announced today that it will be lending Ed Moore, one of its examiners, as a volunteer coach for trainees working to become Certified Forensics Computer Examiners (CFCE). Moore, a forensic examiner that has been with the CCF for 3 years, will lend his 8 years of forensics expertise as a guide for law enforcement officers and civilian examiners in training after the International Association of Computer Investigative Specialists (IACIS) requested his services.
Moore will act as a staff trainer for a handful of students during the IACIS's two-week training program. On a strictly volunteer basis, Moore wished to give his time to help a cause he believes is crucial for the industry.
"There are only around six hundred fifty active CFCEs globally," commented Moore. "The number of CFCEs is small compared to the number of actual examiners in the field. Those of us with working knowledge of this field of forensics need to put more weight on how we can positively affect and train new examiners in this increasingly important field."
In addition to Moore's lab coaching role during the two-week course, the computer forensics expert will act as a personal coach for one or more participants in the CFCE course over the ten-month certification-training period. Moore will train at least one law enforcement examiner through the entire certification process, which includes six in-depth phases and culminates in a vigorous written examination.
For the last ten years, the Center for Computer Forensics has played a major role in the computer forensics field. The organization is dedicated to the advancement of computer forensics and was more than happy to lend Moore to the IACIS.
"We're funding Moore's time with the IACIS because we think the work he's doing is important and irreplaceable," remarked Patrick Ahern, CCF President.
