This Advanced Open Source Intelligence training has 15 modules.
If you do not want to take all 15 modules, one of our 4 to 8 module courses might work for you.
If that doesn't work, and you have 12 or more trainees, consider a customised private training.
If that doesn't work, contact Axeten, tell us what you want, and we'll do our best to deliver.



Prepare for the Live Online Training, with study at home, in the office or while traveling on public transport.
The Axeten Blended Online OSINT Training provides flexibility, while delivering an up-to-date and comprehensive Open Source Intelligence 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 Blended Online OSINT Training causes less disruption for the Public Authority business processes.
Delegates each Live Online Training is delivered in the morning, 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 with 15 Live Online Training events.

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.

The following Tuesday, 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 start of upcoming live online training.



The trainer is a highly experienced, ex-law enforcement officer.
One Live Online Training is provided each week, with duration from 30 to 150 minutes.

Each Live Online Training training will commence with 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 test for the delegates, and depending on the results;
the trainer will discuss with the trainees, the outcome of the test 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 Live Online Training, on a mobile device.
However, to fully participate and to perform any tasks set by the trainer, during the Live Online Training, it's always more productive to be using 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 Public Authority 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 to take the final exam and receive a certificate.



With no extra cost, one person within the client Public Authority, 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.
