I until recently worked in sales for a forensics software company.
I am really interested in learning about it all and looking at a college course as well.

I use a mac OS and dont have a windows pc. What would be the best tool to play around with, or at least have a free trial that you can use on a mac since most of them require command line skills for osx (which i dont have yet!)

Mac forensic tools are typically a bit pricey and focused on examining a Mac. I would recommend downloading one of the free live environment Linux distros and learning the command line because there is really no way to avoid it so learn it now.
