Cellebrite In-System Programming (ISP) Forensic Training


5 days
Advanced-level course

Cellebrite In-System Programming (CISP) training is a five (5) day advanced level course lead by Cellebrite Certified Instructors (CCIs). During the CISP course, participants will learn about In-System Programming (ISP) processes and techniques using the precision soldering, eMMC/eMCP theory, and methodologies. Attendees will become familiar with the equipment and accessories necessary to perform direct eMMC/eMCP (ISP) extractions, without the need for chip-off and the destruction of the mobile device.

NEW! Unique custom-made Advanced Solutions Kits for various extraction methods. Advanced Solution Kits are available as a stand-alone "solution kit only" purchase or as a bundle with this course.
