  • Q:What is Apple Mac Certification?

    An Apple Certified Macintosh Technician (ACMT) can safely perform repairs on Mac devices. Apple offers the ACMT program in order to identify technicians who have a superb working knowledge of Mac OS X and its file structures. ACMT-certified technicians also understand the architecture of Apple systems and can effectively troubleshoot problems affecting individual files or the operating system as a whole.

    When you send damaged storage media to Secure Data Recovery Services, you always receive attention from a certified ACMT technician with relevant data recovery experience.

  • Q:What skills do technicians need in order to earn ACMT certification?

    Individuals must demonstrate "technician-level skill" with Mac OS X 10.8 Lion and subsequent releases of Mac OS X. Each ACMT is also familiar with Mac file systems such as HFS+ and HFS, and this familiarity is especially important during the data recovery process. Apple is solely responsible for awarding ACMT certifications.

  • Q:Why should I look for a certified data recovery provider for my Mac?

    Data recovery engineers often work directly with damaged data in order to return files to a working condition. Regardless of your computer's failure scenario, you need help from an ACMT-certified data recovery engineer in order to ensure the best possible chances of a full recovery.

    Secure Data Recovery Services specializes in Mac OS X, and our teams post high success rates for all versions of the operating system. We offer an overall recovery rate of over 96 percent.

  • Q:Besides ACMT certification, what should I look for when choosing a data recovery provider?

    Professional data recovery providers should have a fully certified Cleanroom, which allows for safe media repairs. The company should also have an established reputation as a data recovery provider, and engineers should have significant experience with Apple devices.

    You should consider turnaround time and pricing options when choosing your data recovery provider. Secure Data Recovery Services offers a flexible set of data recovery options, and we proudly provide a full no recovery, no charge guarantee for all of our Apple data recovery clients.
