HD Forensics Courses Offered


As the current pandemic has led many schools and courses to avoid in-person gatherings in favor of online instruction, HD Forensics is doing everything it can to adapt to the situation in a safe and appropriate manner. While many states are facing different stay-at-home regulations, we are making every effort to stay on top of proper guidelines and procedures. We are hopeful that we will still be able to offer the majority of our courses, but aim to make a concrete determination at the end of April when many stay-at-home guidelines will have lifted and more light is shed on our current situation. Please continue to check our website for status updates and feel free to contact us if you have any questions or concerns.
