Qwarie continues to offer a private and intensive classroom training, with fixed term courses of 1 - 5 days, and a modular training structure, with a variable duration.

A classroom training is a private course, conducted at your premises or at premises provided by Qwarie.

1 day courses are for decision makers. Courses of 2-5 days are for OSINT practitioners.

1 day courses have no delegate limit.

Preferably, 2-5 day courses are limited to 10 delegates, with similar knowledge and experience.

However, and where required, training assistants accompany the lead trainer. So that, more than 10 delegates may attend a 2-5 day course.

Qwarie has dis-continued the supply of classroom Public training courses. Public OSINT courses are online.


The University of Central Lancashire

Qwarie provides the OSINT Module for the UCLAN Cybercrime Investigations MSC.

This is a shorter and intensive 5 day version of the 15 module Distance Learning Course package.


Modular OSINT Classroom Training

Modular training is intended for people with some experience of OSINT. Modular courses are for a minimum of 2 days.

If you are planning a modular OSINT training, and you are not familiar with OSINT, we recommend you choose one of our fixed term training courses, or have your delegates take a Pre-training Assessment and allow their results to determine the modules required.
