I know that if I commit fully and apply what I learn, I’ll get tremendous value. That said, how much time do I need to set aside each week?

If you plan to work through the program to be more effective at work in the quickest and most effective manner, we recommend between 4-6 hours per week to watch the training, complete your assignments and — if you’d like — engage with our mentors and the community. Many of our students go through the program as best they can; pause and return to it as their schedule allows. If you’re not able to carve out that much time at first, don’t worry. You get lifetime access to the training and can easily work at your own pace, on your own schedule. Most of our students have full-time jobs or businesses and families. This experience is designed to stretch you, but it can also be customized to your life. The more focus and dedication you put into the program, the more you’ll get out of it. To be clear, there are no fast or guaranteed results. Advancing your career, credibility, and expertise so that it actually matters is not an 6-week, linear event. This program mirrors the reality of being one of the best cyber intelligence & investigative professionals around the world — it’s intense, time-consuming, demanding and something you’ll work on for the life of your business.
