Great, the whole course was laid out well, and provided a ton of information along with the training.
I think it is a great starter course. I have been doing investigations using SM for the past 10 years and this course made me think about a few things to add to my toolbox. Really liked the at my pace learning. Thank you!
The SMIA certification gave me the training necessary to investigate social media profiles. If you are reading this, chances are you already know how popular social media is and how it is continuing to grow. This course will also prepare you to help fight cyber crime and online bullying. Child predators have turned to social media to find their next victim. Young teens are sending or posting messages about their classmates on social media sites that have lead to these young teens committing suicide.
I recently went through the SMIA and it was honestly, the #1 training course I have attended in over 30+ years. I have been in the telecommunication, computer and digital forensics industry for over 40 years. The 'tricks of the trade' you will learn in the SMIA are second to none. Take one of these courses and at the end, ask yourself, 'was it worth the time?' ... nuff said!
