The OSINT Updates course has 4 modules with 4 Live Online Training events.

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 with 30 minutes for the Module Test.

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.

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.

The Final Exam should be taken within 1 calendar month from the end of the last module.
The Final Exam is activated on the request of the trainee and it has to be taken in one sitting within 7 days of activation.

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.
