Cellebrite Mobile Forensic Fundamentals (CMFF)



2 days
Entry-level course

Course Description

The Cellebrite Mobile Forensics Fundamentals (CMFF) course is a 2-day entry level program designed for investigators to identify mobile device hardware and understand the general forensic process. Students will learn how the four phases of the forensics process are related and demonstrate how to handle devices following best practices. Students will also conduct basic analysis of extracted device data and generate reports using Cellebrite Reader software.

This is the starting point for first responders, investigators and CSI staff tasked with identifying and seizing mobile devices for data acquisition, it does not include conducting extractions. The CMFF course (or test out) is the first requirement to qualify for the Cellebrite Certified Mobile Examiner (CCME) certification exam.
