What to Expect

Hear directly from Doug Estes, Forensic Trainer at Magnet Forensics, about why you should take our Magnet AXIOM Advanced Mobile Forensics (AX300) course, what you can expect when you take it, and what type of real-life experience he brings to the classroom.

Course Prerequisites

Because AX300 is an expert-level course, it is recommended that students first complete Magnet AXIOM Examinations (AX200). AX200 will provide a thorough understanding of AXIOM that will help students focus on the mobile part of investigations in AX300. Click Here to find out more about AX200.
