OSINT Training Accreditation
OSIRA provides accreditation services for programme and training providers upon request. To be accredited, programme or training providers must have gone through the OSIRA Three-stage Quality Assurance Process.
Stage 1: Initial Evaluation
Stage 1 will assess if operators have the institutional competency to effectively manage and provide adequate resources for the development, delivery, assessment and quality assurance of their learning programmes and educational services.
Stage 2: Programme Validation
Stage 2 evaluates the provider’s programme planning and management, syllabuses, delivery arrangements, assessment methods and learning outcomes to ensure they are appropriate for the qualifications to which they lead.
Stage 3: Trainers Assesment
Stage 3 will assess if the trainers have the skills, knowledge and practical experience to conduct OSINT training. Operators would need to submit their trainer/s CV and one reference letter from clients or his/her superior. The OSIRA training committee requires 4 weeks to complete both processes and there is a fee of 150 USD per programme.
Assessment of Training programme (Corporate)
The OSIRA training committee is the designated assessor of OSINT training courses. If your organization wishes to conduct in-house OSINT training and would like to have your programme assessed and accredited by OSIRA, please follow the Three-stage Quality Assurance Process.
Required documents for corporate assessment:
1. Training Programme
2. Completed questionnaire
3. Trainer CV
4. Reference letter from client or superior
Assessment of Training programme (Law Enforcement)
The OSIRA training committee is the designated assessor of OSINT training courses. If your department or unit wishes to conduct in-house OSINT training and would like to have your programme assessed and accredited by OSIRA, we would need to send one of our training committee to sit in and assess the course according to the Three-stage Quality Assurance Process.
For Law Enforcement and Government agencies, you are not required to send the committee any material or trainers background. It is within the OSIRA committee discretion to accredit your courses annually. The agency or operator would need to pay for all transport, accommodation and US$500 for the annual accreditation process.
Please write to us a letter to request OSIRA accreditation.
