Here’s what you’ll learn:
The course is a 4-5 hour program that will take anyone (you, your staff, even police officers) through the basics of Intelligence Analysis.
Learn the Direction, Collection, Analysis and Dissemination phases of the Intelligence Cycle and the exact techniques to turn information into Intelligence.
This is our foundation course and encapsulates all the knowledge, videos, images to show you how Intelligence as actually created.
We’ve even included free templates and a scenario to help you along the way.
Learn To Think Like An Intelligence Analyst
Getting into the Analytical mindset is the most important step. We show you how to frame information differently and approach problems to come up with creative perspectives. These lessons alone are game-changing.
Learn To Apply Analytical Techniques
Teaching only theory is dumb (and can be boring). I’m showing you how to use analytical techniques (such as SWOT, SALUTE, De Bono’s Thinking Hats, etc) to analyse information and problem solve.
Intelligence Analysis Foundations
The Intelligence Cycle is the foundation for good Intelligence. We guide you through the process and teach you everything you need to know.
Write Better Intelligence Assessments
We’ll show you how to write an Intelligence brief and deliver it properly. We use a three-step process (information obtained, context and assessment) to write and deliver killer Intelligence assessments to decision-makers.
Anyone can learn Intelligence – And Anyone Can Benefit
Most customers are interested in pursuing a career in Intelligence. Learning how to research, collect and analyse information aren’t skills reserved for Intelligence professionals protecting national security, this course teaches transferable skills that benefit students, researchers, or investigators also.
Become an Intelligence Analyst
If you’re considering a career in intelligence we provide you with a foundation to base your knowledge and understanding of the intelligence process. Imagine the advantage this provides when interviewing for a job in a three-letter agency?
Intelligence Modules and Lesson Updates
Once you’re a student, you’re part of the family. So when we make updates to the course you automatically get the new updates included. This includes new videos, images and graphics (always adding and improving), and scenarios.
Best of all, once you’re a student you can email me directly with your questions. I will personally respond and offer free consulting to assist you at whatever stage of your journey. This alone is enough to purchase the course.

“ I listened to their Information Requirements and put together a detailed collection plan – the rest took care of itself.”
Hey Ben, I’ve been following your blog online for a while. I first came across your site when looking for information about becoming an intelligence officer. I love your stuff and have already bought your ebook about 10 months ago.
After following your advice, reading your articles and drinking copious caffeinated beverages I’ve been able to use what I learned with success in my day-job and some consultancy work I’m doing. Just recently I took on a new client and after I listened to their Information Requirements and put together a detailed collection plan – the rest took care of itself.
Please let me know when you come out with more courses, I’ll be the first to sign up.

“Great Course, Awesome Examples and Excellent Content”
Ben, You are the only person who is teaching this stuff online. I just wanted to say thanks. I appreciate your help, and commitment to the trade of intelligence. Great course with awesome examples and excellent content – Well done!
“Thanks for making the course interactive with Videos, Images and Graphics”
Ben, I’ve just completed the Tradecraft Course. Thanks, I’m a visual learner, and I really enjoyed seeing how things work with pictures and images. Previously most books on intelligence were pretty dry and not very ‘enticing’, so thanks for making the course interactive with videos, images and graphics.
All the best.

When I first discovered Intelligence Analysis I was immediately obsessed. Maybe it was too many action movies. Or perhaps it was a fascination of spies, guns and secrets – Whatever it was, I’ve always had a fascination with the work of the Intelligence Community.
With over a decade of experience, I’ve deployed to active war zones, supported troops in operations and applied Intelligence to multiple environments (including courts and prisons).
Day to day I’m employed full time as an Intelligence Professional, and I run the Intelligence101 Blog on the side. I’ve developed my skills over the past ten years and now enjoy dedicating my time to helping others learn the skills necessary to improve our profession.
I believe the need for qualified and capable intelligence analysts is growing more and more each day, which is why I’m driven to increase your skills, knowledge and capability.
