Division President Tom Demont lists the latest CFLs and lets you know how you can get your credential too.

As we embrace the New Year, we have so much to do and so little time to do it! Start planning classes to attend so you can take your certified forensic locksmith (CFL) exam now. The Forensics I & II two-day class will be held at SAFETECH in Lexington, KY, this April, so safe and vault technicians can complete this mandatory requirement on the road to their CFL in Safes and Vaults. All SAVTA members are encouraged to sign up and take the CFL Safes and Vaults exam in Lexington. To date, we have had 23 safe techs complete the two-day class. If a career in forensics sparks your interest, plan to attend SAFETECH in Lexington or the ALOA Convention in Las Vegas this August, and we will give you an opportunity to complete specific CFL class requirements at that time. Or, plan to attend the IAIL conference this October 17-20, 2019 at our training center in Dallas, TX. Anyone can sit for the CFL exam if they are members. If you pass the exam but have not yet completed all of your requirements, you will be listed as passing the CFL exam but pending completion of required items.

We had a bumper crop in 2018. We wish all our new CFLs much success with their investigative work and hope that they have a prosperous 2019.
