Open Source Intelligence Distance Learning Course (DLC)
Comprehensive OSINT/III Training for anyone
The Open Source Intelligence DLC has no Live Online Training (LOT) events.
Anyone can take the managed DLC.
Trainees start the managed DLC, to coincide with an open Advanced Blended Online OSINT (BOOT) course.
There are 15 modules.
By e-mail, one module is delivered, each week, for 15 weeks.
There is an option to take a weekly test and a final exam.
This format provides an option to upgrade to the concurrent or to a later Advanced BOOT course.
The weekly test provides trainees with a way to gauge their progress and customer organisations have some oversight capacity.
At the end of the course, there is an option to take final exam and receive a certificate.
Trainees might find that they struggle to complete the DLC and never feel confident about taking the final exam.
Because Axeten BOOT courses start regularly, its easy to upgrade and benefit from Live Online Training (LOT).
There are two Advanced BOOT courses. One for the Public Sector and another for the Private Sector.
You will join the appropriate course. If that is the Public Sector course, you will benefit from learning about your powers under the IPA 2016 legislation that is delivered only within a BOOT.
Customers have the option for oversight on the Managed DLC, with weekly tests.
The complete OSINT Distance Learning Course is £496 + VAT per delegate.
It is not possible to select specific modules on a DLC.
A single user can buy the OSINT Distance Learning Course with a credit/debit card payment.
Upgrade from a managed DLC to a Blended Online OSINT Training (BOOT) with a Live Online Training (LOT) for £320 + VAT per trainee.
In the near future, the capability to select modules and benefit from discount pricing will display here.
In the interim, please make any request with the form.
