A two module course that teaches the essential skills and techniques to process Command Line Applications as part of an III (OSINT) investigation.

Command Line processing is exceptional for intelligence gathering. But the capabilities of Command Line processing have improved. It is possible to locate and gather posts, comments and images from social media platforms that might no longer display in the web interface.

A new course starts approximately every 6 months.

The Online OSINT Training has 3 modules delivered in a term of 5 weeks with 3 Live Online Training events.
We take a 2 week break for Easter. This course is the Social Media and Online Marketplaces modules of the Online OSINT Training

Live Online Training (LOT) events are delivered on Tuesdays.

Start Notice: By e-mail, each delegate is sent a reminder, 24 hours and 1 hour before the upcoming Live Online Training commences.

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 duration of a LOT is 240 minutes. 30 Minutes is for the Module Test.

Each Live Online Training will commence with a Q&A session; so delegates can ask any questions about the course and any previous module.
After that, the trainer will cover the salient points of the current module in some detail.
Processing modules are packed with real-time live demonstrations.

Trainees can interact with the trainer. Where the trainer sets a task, the trainee can share their screen to display their processing of the task.

At the end of the course, monthly updates to changes in the OSINT space are provided by e-mail to each delegate who subscribes to the monthly OSINT newsletter.

The Live Online Training is delivered through two platforms, concurrently. They are the privacy aware BraveTalk and Zoom.

With BraveTalk, we provide one URL to connect and the same URL works for all modules on the course.
It is not necessary to download and install the Brave browser. You can connect with any browser, though Brave is a Chromium Browser and so BraveTalk does work better on another Chromium browser.
Learn all about browsers in module 3 of the Online OSINT Training

Zoom is not not privacy conscious. Even though Axeten has a premium account, Zoom will try to collect data about people connecting to the LOT.
So why do we use it? Because its popular and people rely on it.

Each LOT can be accessed from your office, from the delegate's home or even from a mobile device.

However, to fully participate and to process any tasks set by the trainer, during the Live Online Training, it's always more productive to use a desktop computer with two displays.
With one display, you can observe the training and on the other display, you can process any tasks set by the trainer.

All assessment is online with multiple choice questions.

At the end of each module, the trainee can take a Module Test.
Where all Module Tests are passed with a score of 70% or more
there is no need to take the Final Exam.

If a pass mark to not achieved on any Module Test, the trainee can take the Final Exam.
At the beginning or during the course, the trainee can decide to use the Module Tests only for practice
with the intention of taking the Final Exam at the end of the course.

Module Tests have only 3 or 5 questions and 30 minutes are permitted to complete the test.
The Final Exam has about 10 questions and the time allowed is 60 minutes.

Where the course is passed, a Certificate of Achievement is awarded with CPD credits.
The trainee can elect to have the average Module Test score or the Final Exam score display on the certificate.

Where the course is failed, but the trainee has attended all of the Live Online Training events, a Certificate of Attendance is awarded.

Each Live Online Training is recorded.
Delegates that are not able to attend a Live Online Training can request access to the recording.
There is no additional fee for the recording service.


Twice a year, Axeten conducts a complete review of all of the training material.
Any significant update located during any review is applied to the training material.
All review and update activity is recorded and signed off by a director.
