ACE Lab conducted over 30 data recovery training sessions in 2016. The sessions were held worldwide - in Europe, Asia, and North America. More than 200 people participated in these seminars and workshops.

In November 2016 the biggest vendor-provided data recovery training facility opened its doors at the new ACE Lab Europe office.

The year was concluded with a PC-3000 NAND/Monolith Recovery training sessions for forensic and government specialists with the Teel Technologies company in the US.



In 2016 we expanded our scope of subjects. Now the PC-3000 training courses encompass the widest range of topics on data recovery from various storage devices: HDD, SSD, Flash/Monolith and RAID storage. The HDD and Flash courses come in Expert and Advanced levels, catering for data recovery beginners and experienced engineers. And we are broadening the range of training services to include new directions and formats.



Our trainees are eager to share their impressions after the courses. Here is what Johathan Borgeaud from Kudelski Security, Switzerland, said about a recent training session on Flash recovery:

“I took part in ACE Labs training in December 2016, and to be honest it was a real honor to be trained by Roman. He knows everything about SSD and flash recovery, and it has been a great value for me to benefit from his experience. I recommend attending to this training to everyone who wants to do serious flash recovery. Thank you for your professionalism and your availability.”
