About this course

We are pleased to announce the dates of our next in-person Certified Cyber Investigator Qualification. It will take place in Dublin over 8 days from October 2023 to March 2024.

This hands-on and immersive workshop-driven course is suitable for those who investigate serious and complex Cyber Enabled and Cyber Dependent Crime. This course is highly practical and is presented by an ex-Met Police Cyber Detective and Business Psychologist, Jon Blake. Places are limited, register today to attend.

Why Choose This Course

Cyber investigation now forms part of almost all criminal and civil investigations. This creates the need for investigators to have a level of understanding of cyber investigation that allows them to exploit digital evidence in fast time and use what they discover to move an investigation forward quickly to ensure the capture of further evidential material.

It is essential that investigators are able to undertake this work competently, effectively and safely and produce evidence that can withstand scrutiny.

La Touche Training has developed two qualifications, designed by leading experts, to ensure that those who are involved in cyber investigations have the knowledge, skills and confidence to conduct a digital investigation into any type of criminal activity or incident that could occur in the cyber environment or in support of conventional investigations.

This qualification is designed to:

Equip learners with the necessary skills, knowledge and confidence to carry out cyber investigations competently and in line with current best practice standards.

Allow learners to demonstrate their competency in achieving a nationally recognised qualification, should they be challenged in court or tribunal.

Ensure that learners can offer support and advice to colleagues around the cyber related opportunities in ongoing investigations.

Provide learners with an engaging and immersive learning experience, where new skills can be practised and developed in a safe and controlled environment.

I recently completed the BTEC 5 in Cyber Investigations and found the entire experience delightful.

The level of detail and information delivered by the very knowledgeable trainers was second to none. The training team are available for additional support when needed and happy to answer any questions throughout the training. After completing the course I feel confident to use the new skills and knowledge I acquired which I am already seeing positively impacting my current role. I would highly recommend the course, tutors and La Touche Training if you are looking to develop your skills and understanding of Cyber Investigations.
