As Guidance Software grew and EnCase became the standard in computer investigations, the company recognized a need for a training and certification programs. Guidance Software debuted the EnCase® Certified Examiner (EnCE®) program in 2001 and has since certified more than 3,000 digital forensic practitioners. Its Guidance Software training program has hosted more than 50,000 students in its classroom, online training, or certified partner training programs.“When we started the EnCE and training programs we recognized an industry need, but never could have anticipated the success that these programs have achieved,” said Jessica Bair, senior director of curriculum development at Guidance Software and co-creator of the EnCE program. “I’ve seen the impact these programs have had on the careers of our students and am honored to be a part of it all.” Guidance Software celebrates its 15 th anniversary this month and will culminate the celebration at its annual Computer and Enterprise Investigations Conference (CEIC®) in Orlando, Florida, on May 19-22, 2013.
