- Katlyn S.Verified BuyerRated 5 out of 5 starsWonderful Class
As I am about to transition out of the Army and going back to an investigative career, this course brought a lot more perspective on conducting profiling compared to the profiling experience I had in the military. It allowed me to understand how to better use resources outside of the interrogation/interview process to help determine potential involvement in crimes. Skills that I hadn’t had a lot of exposure to in my career.
