I have been a learner of McAfee for years now and it's worth every penny for the certifications. The content is current and specific to the certifications.

I recently went through the SMIA and it was honestly, the #1 training course I have attended in over 30+ years. I have been in the telecommunication, computer and digital forensics industry for over 40 years. The 'tricks of the trade' you will learn in the SMIA are second to none. Take one of these courses and at the end, ask yourself, 'was it worth the time?' ... nuff said!

The course was incredibly comprehensive. The level of detail went far beyond what I expected...in a very good way. As a security professional and investigator for over 20 years I can say that there was so much I didn't know. I'll be a better investigator and leader as a result. The course consists of a great deal of video and reading assignment, which helped to break it up. While some may know some of the content, it's unlikely that you will take this course and not learn a great deal of new techniques and best practices. Worth every penny.

I am a Detective assigned to the Economic Crime Unit at Upper Merion Township Police Department. The King of Prussia Mall, the 2nd largest mall in the United States with over 500 stores in 3.8 million square feet of retail space is located within our jurisdiction, so you can see how important a course such as Organized Retail Crime Investigator would be to our Police Department. 

I highly recommend this course to anyone who is involved in Economic Crime _ Detectives, Uniformed Officers and Loss Prevention Personnel. The information provided is invaluable. The support team - Justice Simone - was top notch in answering all my questions and keeping me on track. The course provided me with a solid foundation to build upon. I was able to put to use, immediately, the techniques that were being taught in each module. Cant' wait to start the next course and expand my knowledge base. Thank you!!
