Listen to our Students Instead!

Greg Goodman

"I have been in Law Enforcement for 31 years. Am I familiar with some of the information; yes, but there was a lot of great information that I was not aware of. I would highly recommend these courses!"

Adam Maxwell

"I just completed the CCII course and I have to say I was impressed. A lot of my work is around Open Source Intelligence and Cyber related investigations, so not all the material was new to me. That being said the material relating to Fraud was very interesting and has made me look at sites like eBay in a totally different way. If your job is related to seeking out the truth via the internet then this course is definitely worth the time and money."

Gary Thomas

"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!"

Joann Alicea

"Hands down one of the BEST certifications experiences I have ever had in that ALL of the training material is available on your student dashboard when you log in and is extremely student friendly with videos and quiz's of Human Trafficking Investigation Knowledge. I highly recommend the McAfee Institute CHTI certification."
