Frequently Asked Questions

  • Do I need to complete the video training course prior to completing the certification assessment?

    Yes, a prerequisite for the Certification program is completion of the Online Video Training course.

  • I am a current member, what information should I include in my email inquiry?

    Current members need only send an email to [email protected] and include the email address which you use for the the online video training. Once we verify your member status you will receive a response with a link which may be used to purchase the certification assessment as an add-on to your current membership.

  • I took the training years ago, does that satisfy the prerequisites?

    Eligibility requires completion of the live or online training course as instructed by Jason Edison. Former live and online training materials presented by Michael Bazzell do not qualify as the curriculum and techniques presented in those older courses will not properly prepare participants for successful completion of the assessment process.

  • Is there a fee for the OSIP certification?

    Yes. We offer an optional exam to become a certified IntelTechniques Open Source Intelligence Professional (OSIP) at a cost of $300. This is a one-time testing fee with no annual requirements. Expect to be challenged during testing! You will work directly with Jason throughout the certification process. With your explicit consent, we will confirm your certification with third-parties (such as an employer).
