    [QUOTE=the_Grinch;1127005]A degree definitely will not hurt. At my agency a degree is a minimum if you do not have a ton of experience already (obviously they prefer both). I know a local college near by to be has a two year degree and certificate in computer forensics where you come out with EnCase certification when you are done. Perhaps there is something similar in the UK?[/QUOTE

    I have to agree. If you get to a point where working on a reputable degree is something you can swing, even if it's only a class per term to slowly work through it, I highly recommend. Certainly a degree is not the be all, end all, and getting certs is also important - and may be a better beginning in the short term as well. However, a degree is often a baseline requirement for a lot of jobs. I work with a couple talented co-workers who have years of experience, and no degree (and mostly no certs either), but even they fear changing jobs should the need arise due to competing with others with a degree or certs.

    Hello,

    You can go with EnCase Certs. There are a few people only in the world as EnCaseCertified eDiscovery Practitioner(EnCEP) and one of them was my Forensic teacher from Argentine.

    Hope that help!

    All the best!

Not to mention, some schools that have digital forensics courses will use it and I would imagine that students interested in getting a foot in the forensics door would study for the exam and take it after their semester is over.

    I've been doing some research I see that people have recommended getting FTK version 1.81 since that version allowed a trial. Something like 5000 files max for a case.

    Now if I could find a place to download it from that i trusted I would try it out.
    Looks like Access Data took down their download in 2014.

    However maybe that version is too old to be useful for the cert.
    Free cert but $4000 software required
