“I recently completed another MOBILE FAST TRACK certification (recertification for me). I have been a full-time forensic examiner for most of ten years. I have attended many certification training courses, however, there are not many certification training that is at the level of PARABEN. I absolutely cannot say enough about AMBER SCHROADER. PARABEN FOUNDER. I have been in the criminal investigation side of forensics and investigation lead development for some 45 years and without reservation, I can say that AMBER has developed a company of incredibly high technical professionals with knowledge beyond many of those peers in this profession. I would recommend her training to anyone who truly wants to learn not just for self-improvement, rather, to glean knowledge few others offer.”
