The AccessData Certified Examiner (ACE) with lab includes the ACE exam and 6 hours of scheduled lab time. Only purchase this one if you do NOT have a copy of FTK. Once purchased, choose the ACE Lab option to schedule.

The ACE credential demonstrates the user’s proficiency with AccessData’s Forensic Toolkit (FTK). The exam is designed to test the proficiency of the user with the tool, and not necessarily forensic investigation workflows. Although there are no prerequisites for this certification, it is recommended that the user have some experience with the tool, or have taken the following course(s):

  • Minimum: FTK Bootcamp
  • Recommended: Forensic Toolkit 101

The ACE exam is comprised of 25 questions, all requiring the taker to perform actions within a case. The exam will require the user to create a case, load and process evidence. The Image file and any associated support files will be provided by AccessData. Forensic Toolkit is required to take the Exam. The current version of the ACE was built using FTK 7.4, and validated again on FTK 7.4.2.

The exam answers are entered into the assessment page within the training.accessdata.com webpage. The exam must be completed within three (3) hours. We suggest creating the case and doing some preliminary processing before starting the exam. Note: due to a limitation we cannot change, the idle timer for the exam is set for 60 minutes. If you are logged out for being idle on a question, the timer does not continue. Simply start back into the exam
