These brand new training courses offer the first online option for users to receive Certification on the iNPUT-ACE software.
The team at iNPUT-ACE have delivered high-quality, in-person training for years. Due to recent events, many of our customers have been limited by budget and travel, so we have re-imagined the way we can provide high-quality training while keeping the personal touch that iNPUT-ACE believes is critical to a successful partnership.
Starting in July 2020, they will deliver live, instructor-led, hands-on digital training for investigators working with video evidence. Due to classroom size limitations, the first several classes will be first come first serve.
Please contact us for more information (use the form below), to hold seats for an upcoming class we will need a purchase order or full payment.
We look forward to helping you obtain your first iNPUT-ACE User Certifications!
