Course Descriptions:


The Covert Methods of Entry (CMOE) Course provides students with an overall understanding of covert entry techniques for defeating different types of locks, including vehicular locks, using commercial and improvised tools, and bypass methods to defeat locks. Students leave the course with a very good overall knowledge of the equipment and the proper expertise needed to operate in the real world.


The Basic Audio/Video Applications Course provides students with comprehensive theory, knowledge of Closed Circuit Television (CCTV) equipment, terminology, power computations, lens selection computations, troubleshooting procedures, analog & digital video capture, concealable camera wiring construction, techniques for concealing cameras & technical force protection surveys. This course is designed to give the student a very good overall knowledge of the equipment & proper use needed to install, operate, and maintain video observation posts, and to conduct technical force protection surveys.

 


The Digital Surveillance Photography Course provides students with a familiarization of different types of digital still cameras, an understanding of the techniques associated with using photographic equipment, and applying it to surveillance operations. Additionally, students learn how to improve collected images through the use of image enhancement software, and how to mark individual images for incorporation into an intelligence package. Students receive instruction in the use of cover and on the mission planning process. The course is designed to give graduates a very good overall knowledge of the equipment, proper use, and planning considerations needed to execute a fixed or mobile surveillance mission utilizing digital photography equipment.

 

The Site Exploitation Course provides students with an overall understanding of site exploitation procedures including proper collection, handling and marking methods for digital media, cellular devices and documents with intelligence value. Additionally, students learn how to document chain of custody of collected materials to ensure evidentiary value in a court of law. Students become familiar with different types of digital still cameras, an understanding of the techniques associated with using photographic equipment, and applying them to document and macro photography. Students receive instruction on the site exploitation mission planning process and conduct hands on practical exercises that reinforce the skills taught in class. The course is designed to give graduates a very good overall knowledge of the equipment, proper use, and planning considerations needed to execute a site exploitation mission. Students leave the course with an overall knowledge of the equipment and the proper expertise needed to operate in the real world.
