Tec-I (Technical Exploiter Course)

The Technical Exploiter Course (Tec-I) is the first step of a two-phase program to become certified as a Technical Exploitation Operator.

Tec-I is a 10-day comprehensive course intended for the field operator tasked to perform rapid Technical Exploitation (DOMEX / CELLEX) activities. Comprised of classroom instruction and practical exercises, the goal is to ultimately capture, extract and report relevant data in effort to glean actionable information in varying operational environments.

Students shall graduate Tec-I with a core understanding of best practices, forensic methodology and how to leverage tools within their kit to minimize time on target when exploiting relevant digital media frequently encountered during global operations (PCs, mobile devices, SIM cards, USB media, flash cards, etc). To accomplish time sensitive activities in the most efficient manner, students will learn the Teel Tech “APE” process (Assess, Prioritize and Exploit) during the course with the intent of facilitating follow-on operations.

Students taking this course should possess a fundamental understanding of technology and strengths working in austere multi-tasking environments. This is a fast paced, intense learning environment intended to provide an organization with the ability to perform rapid field exploitation in varying operational environments.

Students will have have their own desk with one or more power strips and a Teel Tech training kit that includes:

  • CFID v3.0 kit
  • Detego Ultimate 30 day license
  • Cellebrite UFED 4PC Ultimate kit
  • APE kit
  • x6 USB 256GB thumb drives (collectors)
  • x2 USB Ballistic thumb drives (masters)
  • x1 32bit live boot dongle
  • x1 64 bit live boot dongle
