"The course well describes the Humint process to final collect information required and also the connections that Law Enforcment officers should have with the IC. The exercise practice is the best way to really understand teachings.

"Very insightful and useful material on HUMINT. Easy to follow and pick up on the thought processes that would make it work in the field.
  S. Cunniff

"Followed an outline of repetition with increasing details every time new information was covered. This reinforced the subject matter and provided a strong foundation for learning what was previously imperfectly known. The course made me think. I know more about this tradecraft and cultural subtleties than I did before.
