The “Certificate in Intelligence Studies” program offers a comprehensive and immersive exploration into the world of international espionage and intelligence. This certificate program, led by a seasoned retired CIA (SIS) Senior Operations Officer who was the Chief of Station at the CIA’s iconic training facility, provides participants with an in-depth understanding of the structures, strategies, methodologies, and capabilities of the world’s leading intelligence agencies as well as adversarial agencies.
Each class in the series is dedicated to examining the intelligence models of a specific country, offering a unique perspective on how different nations approach espionage and security. We start with the structure of US Intelligence agencies in Part 1. Then from the historical evolution of British and Russian intelligence services to the modern-day tactics of Israeli, Iranian, Chinese, and North Korean agencies, this program covers a wide range of topics. Participants will gain insights into key concepts and terminologies in espionage, such as HUMINT, SIGINT, and OSINT, and explore the historical context and evolution of modern-day intelligence.
