OPEN SOURCE INTELLIGENCE TRAINING SERVICES
Qwarie offers both fixed term courses with duration of 1 - 5 days, and a modular training structure, with a variable duration.
All training may be conducted privately, at your premises or at Qwarie premises.
1 day courses are for decision makers. Courses of 2-5 days are for OSINT practitioners.
1 day courses have no delegate limit.
2-5 day courses are limited to 10 delegates, with similar knowledge and experience.
Where required, training assistants accompany the lead trainer. So that, more than 10 delegates may attend a 2-5 day course.
Public training courses are conducted in London and Birmingham.
Qwarie offers a choice fixed term courses that are ideal for people with limited or no experience of OSINT research.
1. General OSINT & Social Media research courses of 2 to 5 days. Any fixed term course can be delivered privately. Publicly, we offer the 4 day course; useful if you have only four or less people that require training.
2. Nine targeted, sector specific courses with very high relevance. These private courses focus on the tasks your researchers will perform after the training.
Modular training is intended for people with some experience of OSINT. Modular courses are for a minimum of 2 days.
When planning training, if you are not familiar with OSINT techniques, we recommend you should choose one of our fixed term training courses, or have your delegates take a Pre-training Assessment.
Where you choose to go the module route, be careful to not omit a module because you think it might not be necessary. PTA results provide facts for effective module selection.
PRE-TRAINING ASSESSMENT & MODULE SELECTION (PTAMS)
Save time and money with targetted training for your OSINT researchers.
PTAMS begins with an on-line test. 30 OSINT questions with multiple choice answers.
Delegates login and answer the questions.
Their results determine the modules where they require training.
A report is generated with a list of modules and the respective delegate names.
Subsequently, the Modular OSINT training is quick and easy to design.
In 2012, for use in England & Wales, ACPO released a 5 level system to classify OSINT investigation.
In reality, overlapping levels do not represent current law enforcement practice.
In compliance with current practice, Qwarie recommends, and aligns their training, with three levels of access, that are easy to understand.
Guidance or training is available where required.
Classroom Training Unit (CTU)
With a private course, Qwarie is able to supply a Classroom Training Unit.
Each CTU has up to 10 laptop computers.
Each laptop comes with a pre-configured False Persona for research purposes.
Also, and where the 4G network is robust, the CTU can provide an independent internet connection, for the trainer and all delegates.
