The Introduction to Intelligence Analysis e-learning course is a two-level course designed to equip aspiring and inexperienced analysts, as well as other interested professionals, with the knowledge and skills to undertake intelligence analysis tasks, and to better understand intelligence analysis products when they encounter them or are asked to create them. A variety of learning activities and practical assignments are used to consolidate learning. This course will also be a valuable resource for managers who are required to task, direct or supervise intelligence analysis and processing activities.


Level Two represents an expansion and more in-depth exploration of the issues introduced in Level One. The student is here provided an opportunity to think about the various functional and organizational contexts in which intelligence analysis might be productively used, consider lessons to be derived from intelligence failures and then develop hands-on familiarity with a variety of advanced analytic techniques and further develop report writing.
