5-Day Bootcamp Expert Certification Class

Location: Washington, DC - in Leesburg
Date: May 14th 2012 - May 18th 2012

 

This is a mentored 5-day Data Recovery Expert Certification Class where I, Scott Moulton, will be there to walk you though everything step by step and to answer your questions.

We are covering Solid State Drives as well as Hard Drives in this course!

Data recovery is a skill that's very difficult to learn and involves repairing damaged hard drives and recovering corrupted data.

The goal of this class is to teach you how to handle a damaged hard drive and what your options are. We will introduce you to the proper hardware, equipment and software that will give you the best possibility and skills at completing this task.

This class is for the Data Recovery Expert Certification.

An overview of the five days

  • Solid State Drives and Spinning Disks are covered!
  • CLEAN ROOMS PRACTICES & PROPER CLEAN ROOM POLICIES!
  • Three days of lecture and labs where we disassemble two hard drives and attempt to reassemble them into working machines.
  • The third and fourth day will be logical recoveries where we will use the lab computers to image memory sticks for class, there will be other images of drives provided for Raid 0 and Raid 5 recoveries. There will be images provided for NTFS, Mac OSX HFS and EXT3 Linux drives for recovery as well as the previous mentioned sets of images for Raid 5 and Raid 0.
  • We usually do a number of things after class and discuss many things at dinner with relation to jobs and details
