We run comprehensive training courses with assessment, or shorter application-type training courses, to fit with our licence agreements. Following these courses, EvoFIT practitioners receive regular training as part of annual CPD.

Note that we also offer support to potential customers who are assessing EvoFIT (e.g., via a test case or a field trial) as an effective forensic tool.
