I recently just went through the Board Certified "Certified Organized Retail Crime Investigator" (CORCI) course. I immediately fell in love with the course layout and platform which was simple to use and navigate. The content of the course was also excellent. Whether you have been conducting ORC investigations for 50 years or 1 day there is something for everyone. For me, there was a nice mix of reading work, video tutorials, and assignment work that helped me gain the knowledge I needed in order to pass the final exam. 2 day's after passing the exam I came a crossed a real life situation at work in which I was able to obtain a ton of information to build a nice foundation for my investigation. I would recommend this course to everyone in Loss Prevention and Law Enforcement. I am grateful for the McAfee Institute for all of the value that they bring to our small community of LP and LE professionals! Sincerely, Eric Mizner, LPQ, CORCI
I just recently began my endeavor towards the CORCI Board Certification. I am very pleased with the curriculum and how it is presented. It is very informative. It includes written information which I personally print out for future review and study, in addition to audible lectures from an instructor.
I came away with a lot regarding the resources available to help aid during investigations (i.e. MetaData, Maltego, Advanced Search for EBay). The training offered many additional ones that all investigators should at least make themselves aware of to support your research and findings. Great purchase and good refresher.
In depth course that digs deep into the organized retail crime business
The course was incredibly comprehensive. The level of detail went far beyond what I expected...in a very good way. As a security professional and investigator for over 20 years I can say that there was so much I didn't know. I'll be a better investigator and leader as a result. The course consists of a great deal of video and reading assignment, which helped to break it up. While some may know some of the content, it's unlikely that you will take this course and not learn a great deal of new techniques and best practices. Worth every penny.
