Tactical Intelligence Course -
This Tactical Intelligence Course is two days of instruction and exercises to prepare students to gather and analyze information during emergency situations. Each training day begins at 0900 and ends approximately 1700 (5pm).
We begin by exploring and analyzing the threats and conditions we’re likely to face during an emergency or disaster scenario, and then work on building a local intelligence capacity that drives planning and decision-making throughout the disaster.
You’ll have the opportunity to do group or individual work where you’ll navigate the Intelligence Cycle and complete relevant intelligence products for your situation. We discuss Intelligence collection and then we collect. Then we discuss Intelligence analysis and we analyze incoming information in order to produce intelligence.
Over these two days, we train students to become the ‘intelligence officer’ during an emergency scenario. The student will have an understanding of his/her roles and responsibilities, be able to direct collection and then produce threat intelligence. That’s our number one goal for any scenario — produce early warning and threat intelligence.
Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance (ISR) Course -
ISR is designed to give students a familiarization of intelligence collection operations and how to fill intelligence gaps in their Area Studies through physical and non-standard collection methods. Students will learn about Intelligence network design, targeting cycle operations (F3EAD2), the Military Decision-Making Process, basic surveillance, mission planning, and a Threat Vulnerability Assessment.
Surveillance Fundamentals -
Recognizing criminal surveillance is crucial to prevent yourself from becoming a victim. This course is designed for those who travel overseas and in high risk environments, or anyone concerned about pre-operational terrorist or criminal surveillance.
In this course, you will learn the fundamentals of surveillance and counter-surveillance, taught by special operations instructors.
Day One includes a half-day of classroom training, followed by a half-day of foot surveillance.
Day Two includes a half-day of classroom training, followed by a half-day of foot and mobile surveillance.
Close Target Reconnaissance -
Conducting an area reconnaissance and security survey is an important part of building your Area Study. In the Close Target Reconnaissance Course, you will learn how to conduct reconnaissance of a location or area; plan reconnaissance missions; study maps for reconnaissance planning; highlight security vulnerabilities; and reverse-engineer security for your home, homestead, or bug-out location.
