Quality Matters is a nationally recognized, faculty-centered, peer-review process that certifies the quality of online courses. Cellebrite training is committed to quality assurance and course design.


To participate in this On-Demand course, students must have:

  • A computer capable of running UFED Reader software.

NOTE: Estimated delivery of shipments is 5 - 7 days after payment and enrollment are complete.

Time Limit: Participants will have access to the course and all associated course resources for three months (90 days).

Students who do not already have or have access to currently licensed Cellebrite hardware and software are 
encouraged to take one of our Instructor-Led or Live Online classes.

Course Access

Students have a 90-day limited time period to access and complete all content, activities, and exams for this class. Access begins on the day the student’s enrollment is confirmed (voucher consumption) and can be monitored in the top left-hand menu of the class homepage, by use of a timer which shows students the number of days remaining for their access.

  • Although this is a self-paced fully online class, we suggest students follow a similar schedule to the instructor-led format (provided in the next section) in order to ensure they successfully complete the entire class, before their access period expires.
  • In the event that additional access time is needed, the student must wait until the number of days reaches 0 days, at which point the countdown will become a button to request an extension of 30-days. You will not be able to request the extension prior to the expiration of those days, to ensure you get an additional full-term for the request.
  • Extension requests typically take 1-2 business days to review/approve and limited to a one-time request. If the student fails to complete the course after the approval of the 30-day extension, you may be required to purchase the class again and start over.

About CMFF

The Cellebrite Mobile Forensics Fundamentals (CMFF) course is a one-day entry-level program designed for examiners and investigators to experience and demonstrate mobile device forensics, experiment using forensic processes, recognize proper digital evidence devices seizure protocols, examine extracted device data, and generate basic reports using UFED Reader software. 

The CMFF is the starting point for first responders, investigators, CSI staff, and digital forensic examiners tasked with identifying and seizing mobile devices for data acquisition. This class does not include live data extractions. After the CMFF training program, participants should recognize the expansive variety of Cellebrite digital forensic solutions, and the organizational role as the leader in training and industry-recognized presence as an extraction device technology company. 

The CMFF course or the credit by examination (test out) equivalent is the first step required in the training path to qualify for the Cellebrite Certified Mobile Examiner (CCME) certification exam. Students considering the CCME Certification are also required to successfully complete the Cellebrite Certified Operator (CCO) course and the Cellebrite Certified Physical Analyst (CCPA) course. 

Students achieve the certification for this course upon passing a knowledge and practical skills assessment with a score of 80% or higher. The only way to earn the certification is by completing the associated course and exam.
