What do previous delegates say about this training:

Thanks for the two sessions of very interesting and thought provoking content and also for access to your extensive bookmark collection via the website.

Fantastic 2-day training session with @opsimathycouk
to expand our #OSINT capabilities and more for the #MaritimeObservatory @OceanMindGlobal.

Thanks for two fantastic days, I have gained more practical, day to day skills in these two days than on any other course.

The course was structured and met the needs of Investigators. It was put across in a way in which it could be readily understood by those with less IT knowledge and was interesting.

Delivery of the course was as expected online but did not lack for information and no time was wasted waiting for things to appear on the screen. There was an opportunity to ask questions at any point.

Thanks for a very informative presentation. I look forward to putting these new skills into practise.

Fantastic, very professional and knowledgeable, great course, the virtual delivery worked well.

No doubt Tony is an expert in this field, brilliant and interesting course, a real eye-opener.

Excellent, subject knowledge and enthusiasm were clear throughout, just the right pace, level and content. Dealt with questions and queries in an excellent way, classroom would have been better for interaction, but under the circumstances the virtual course was a very good alternative.

Great pace – very clear presentation. would have loved to do this in a classroom setting where I think it would have been even better as we could have had more interaction – but obviously due to COVID we couldn’t!

This was probably one of the best courses I have attended in years. It was very informative and useful. The virtual delivery was a good format but at times could suffer from connection lags.
