  • Open Source Intelligence (OSINT)
  • Human Intelligence (HUMINT)
  • Imagery Intelligence (IMINT)
  • Signals Intelligence (SIGINT)
  • And we also cover a bit of MASINT and TECHINT

During this course, you will practice the basics of intelligence gathering and learn how to produce threat and area assessments. Then you’ll put these skills to work in individual or team-based practical exercises built around current crime and gangs, cartel and drug activity, cyber attacks, natural disasters, potential martial law, civil disturbances, and even more deadly situations.

You’ll also begin preparing a local Area Assessment of your neighborhood and surrounding area, and identify very specific ways of gathering real-world intelligence on local threats during an emergency or disaster scenario.
