The Core Intelligence Analysis Training provides students with the essential analytical skills and knowledge to be effective within an intelligence, performance or investigation environment. The training has also been designed to meet the Intelligence Professionalisation Programme (IPP) standards for Intelligence Analysts and is CPD accredited with the CPD Standards Office in the UK.
The 5-day training focuses on the key analytical skills required in the workplace and is a ‘lite’ version of the Initial Analytical Techniques Course (also known as NIAT). The training only includes the relevant NIM analytical techniques that are used regularly by Analysts. We offer a 2-day Awareness of the 10 NIM Analytical Techniques as another training option, if required.
To enable students to gain confidence in their newly acquired skills and knowledge, a practical scenario is embedded throughout the training. The students benefit from the use of various methods of teaching such as course handouts, presentations, practical exercises and break-out sessions.
