Program Description

The program is designed as a series of modular courses, each focusing on a critical stage within the intelligence cycle:


This introductory course lays the groundwork by defining intelligence, exploring different intelligence disciplines and consumers, and introducing the core concept of the intelligence cycle.

Intelligence Direction Fundamentals

Delve into the initial stage, where intelligence customers send their requirements to analysts. You’ll learn how needs are translated into clear and actionable intelligence requirements.

Intelligence Collection Fundamentals

Shift your focus to how intelligence agencies gather information. This course explores various collection disciplines (INTs) like HUMINT (human intelligence) and SIGINT (signals intelligence) and emphasizes the importance of collection planning and risk management.

Intelligence Processing Fundamentals

Bridge the gap between raw data and actionable intelligence. This course delves into the processing stage, where information is screened, translated, collated, and transformed for analysis. You’ll also explore how technology is revolutionizing intelligence processing.

Intelligence Analysis Fundamentals

Now that information is processed, it’s time for analysis. This course equips you with the skills to transform data into insights using Structured Analytic Techniques (SATs) and critical thinking frameworks. You’ll learn to identify patterns, manage uncertainty, and craft clear and concise intelligence reports.

Intelligence Dissemination Fundamentals

The final course focuses on getting intelligence into the hands of those who need it most. You’ll explore various dissemination methods like briefings and written reports, while emphasizing the importance of tailoring information to specific audiences and adhering to security protocols.
