Our Approach to Intelligence: Advanced CI & HUMINT Tradecraft Training

NetCentrics applies our expertise in advanced CI & HUMINT tradecraft training with the capability to deliver instruction at multiple venues with fully qualified and specialized instructors. We incorporate innovative instructional methods and advanced tools to train Special Agents to perform emerging CI activities in the cyber domain.
NetCentrics’ customers receive the highest quality of instruction resulting in proficient CI & HUMINT course graduates who immediately perform their missions in any operational environment, including the cyber domain.

NetCentrics personnel are CI & HUMINT experts capable of delivering the full range of tradecraft training. Subject matter experts (SME) will prepare course materials using the standard ISD methodology. Our instructors are Instructional Design experts and can deliver PE based training in MTT, distance learning and in-residence formats. Our instructors utilize learning management systems across the DoD to facilitate resident training, distance learning, course scheduling, and acquisition of resources. Course design includes identification of specific learning objectives and the design of instructional approaches and techniques best suited to achieving educational goals. Applying a spiral development approach, we employ rapid prototyping techniques to craft POIs, PEs, case studies, classroom lectures, and computer-based instructional tools best suited to effectively provide students with the desired skillsets. Student and supervisory feedback, management evaluations, Government oversight, peer reviews and customer curricula reviews are actively sought and serve to improve instruction. All courses are compliant with the policies and procedures governing the conduct of intelligence activities, including Executive Order 12333, DoD Directives 51240.1, 5240.1R, 5240.2, and related JCS, DIA and Service and DCHC policy guidance.

We develop training objectives based on revised requirements and designs instructional and assessment methodologies specific to the curriculum. We create lesson plans, presentations, and training materials; and design performance assessment rubrics to match PEs and testing mechanisms, and evaluate course results. We develop complete training strategy using the ISD process to produce course modules for the presentation of credibility assessment techniques that include a training support package with instructional aides, student handouts, PEs, and evaluation forms. We use the Kirkpatrick Four-Levels of Course Evaluation Model to measure effectiveness of training programs, and provide SME guidance on the development of new student assessments.
