Prepare for the online training, with study at home, in the office or while traveling on public transport.
The Axeten blended online course provides flexibility, while delivering an up-to-date and comprehensive OSINT training service.
We find that the slower delivery over 16 weeks, allows for better retention of information, than an intensive 5 day classroom training.

Also, the online training causes less disruption for the Organisation's business processes.
Delegates might have the opportunity to apply what they have learned to their regular work processes, immediately.

By default, all Live Online Training is delivered within the UTC 0 time zone.
Axeten has the capacity to deliver in other time zones.

The typical weekly study time requirement, varies from 2 to 3 hours, depending on the module and the delegate's existing knowledge.



There are 15 modules providing a term of 16 weeks.

On the assigned day of each week, by e-mail one module of the Blended Online OSINT Training material, is delivered to each delegate.
The material is in Printed Document Format (PDF).
Within the following seven days, the delegate should study the material provided and perform any practical examples.

On the same day of the following week, the Live Online Training will be available to all delegates.
By e-mail, each delegate is sent a reminder, 24 hours and 1 hour before the upcoming Live Online Training commences.



One Live Online Training is provided each week, with a duration from 30 to 120 minutes.

Each Live Online Training will commence with a review the subject matter and a Q&A session; so delegates can ask any questions concerning the current module.

The trainer provides explanations and where necessary, live demonstrations so that all delegates are sure they understand the subject matter of the current module.
Then, the trainer will set a quick quiz for the delegates, and depending on the results;
the trainer will discuss with the trainees, the outcome of the quiz and any wider implications concerning the module subject matter.
The trainer will exercise the option to deliver more live demonstrations for the trainees to observe.
After that, there might be another Q&A.

The Live Online Training is delivered through the secure GoToTraining platform,
that can be accessed from your office, from the delegate's home or even from a mobile device.
The smartphone app is excellent. It really is viable to attend the training on a mobile device.
However, to fully participate and to perform any tasks set by the trainer, during the Live Online Training, its always more productive to be on a computer with two monitors.

The intention is that, by the end of  each Live Online Training, every delegate shall have the capacity to perform the OSINT research relevant to the current module.
At the end of the Blended Online OSINT Training, monthly updates to changes in the OSINT space are provided by e-mail to each delegate that signs up for the monthly OSINT newsletter.



At the end of each weekly Live Online Training, any client organisation might request that each of their delegates should take a short online test.



At the end of the Blended Online OSINT Training, there is an option for each trainee to take the final exam and receive a certificate.



There is no obligation to purchase all modules in the Blended Online OSINT Training.
You can choose the modules you want, and the price is adjusted accordingly.
However, the training process does have a natural progression that might be compromised where any module might be omitted and, OSINT is dynamic and is changing all the time.
Axeten constantly updates the training material, so that even the most experienced of researchers might be made aware of new techniques that might compensate for other techniques that have been excluded.

With no extra cost, one person within the client Organisation, who has an oversight requirement, shall have the capability to engage in any Live Online Training.
The person with oversight has the right to engage with the trainer and to ask any questions
Also, a request can be made to Axeten to record the Live Online Training.
There is no additional fee for the recording service.
Delegates can login and then watch and listen to the recording.
