      Great refresher as well as educational!

      As a person about to leave the military to enter into an investigative field, this class was able to help me refresh on some of the basic procedural and investigative techniques for various crimes that I’ve not been exposed to in my career. It also provided insights to different types of crimes and some investigative fields (such as the cyber investigation) that I never had been exposed to, which allowed me to learn more about topics that I hadn’t ever considered previously.

      Extremely Pleased With My Purchase

      I am extremely pleased with the information that I have received so far, regarding the training that I signed up for. I have definitely learned a great deal about various investigation incidents and backgrounds. I have not yet completed the course but I am super enthused about what I have learned and continue to learn day after day. I would say that I would like a little more emphasis on certain categories like "human trafficking, child exploitation, narcotics, and sex crimes". Overall though, Thank you for the education that I am receiving!

      Respectfully,

      William J. Singleton

      Feedback regarding the course

      I’m quite impressed with the content material. It’s straightforward no nonsense learning. It’s relevant and beneficial as an educational tool for LE professionals seeking to upskill without the complexities of admission to tertiary institutions. The undertaking is not something to be sneezed at given the time involved to cover the content. I’d like to see course offerings on forensics and scene of crime analysis! Perhaps that’s in the works!
