All S2 Safety & Intelligence Institute courses are presented at an UNCLASSIFIED level.
Classroom students applying for admission to restricted S2 courses must complete a security and identity verification questionnaire while on-site prior to the beginning of the course. The statements provided in the identity verification form are subject to investigative verification and any omissions or misleading statements are grounds for dismissal from the course. S2 also reserves the right to dismiss a classroom student from a restricted class if the student does not meet the eligibility criteria for the course restriction level.
Classroom students are also required to provide photographic identification to verify their identity. A photocopy will be made of the ID and kept on record with the student’s identity verification form. Students that claim employment by a US federal or local government agency should provide official government ID to establish the student’s eligibility for Level 3 restricted courses.
Identity verification is a one-time process and does need to be completed again if a student wishes to enroll in additional S2 restricted courses including distance learning programs. If a previous classroom student wishes to have their course access level carried over to their online user account for the purposes of enrolling in distance learning courses, the student should contact us and provide us with their online user ID. Our admissions staff will then update the student’s user ID to reflect their previously approved course access level.
Distance Learning Students
All distance learning students applying for admission to restricted S2 Online Academy courses must complete an identity verification process prior to enrollment. Students who wish to enroll in Level 1 (Unrestricted) courses do not need to complete the identity verification process and may proceed directly to course enrollment.

The online identity verification process is simple. First, you need to be registered as a site user. Once you have a registered user name and password, log in and click the link below to pay for your security and identity verification application fee. There is a $10.00 non-refundable fee for processing your identity verification questionnaire that must be paid before your application is submitted.
Once we receive confirmation of your payment, you will receive an email providing you with access to the security and identity verification questionnaire. Complete the online identity verification questionnaire. When we receive your completed questionnaire, our admissions staff will contact your employer and/or references to verify your identity and statements. Once we have established your credibility, we will grant you a course access level and you will then be eligible to enroll in restricted courses. This verification process typically takes 1-3 business days to complete depending upon how much difficulty we encounter in contacting your employer or references.
When you have been granted a course access level, you may enroll in any courses at the level to which you have been granted access. Identity verification is a one-time process and does not need to be completed again unless your employment status changes and you request access to courses at a higher level.
