Frequently asked questions

  • How long has Echo Analytics Group been teaching OSINT?

    We taught our first OSINT course in April 2013. Since then, we have delivered over 75 in-person courses and trained over 2000 professionals.

  • Who will recognize the certificate I receive for completing an Echo Course?

    While a certification from our course is recognized by select universities, government agencies, the military, and numerous Fortune 100 companies, we hope to provide you much more than a certificate. We are committed to your success and look forward to helping you succeed. The need for trained OSINT analysts continue to skyrocket and we enjoy connecting hard-working graduates with employers.

  • What if I am not 100% satisfied with the course?

    As long as you let us know before you print your certificate, we will happily refund your money. No questions asked. In the case you are taking a course that does not offer a certificate, we do not issue refunds so please make sure this is the right course for you before paying.

  • What makes this course different from other OSINT courses?

    Our instructors have practical experience using OSINT and our courses are designed to teach you sound methods for conducting OSINT research and analysis. While we understand and appreciate the value of social media analytics tools, our courses are focused on helping you conduct OSINT analysis using sound practices, regardless of the tool of the week.

  • What if I have a question during the course, is there someone available to help me?

    Absolutely! Our cadre is available via e-mail, chat, and phone. If you have an issue and it is outside of normal business hours, please send us an e-mail. We will respond as quickly as possible. If you have enrolled in OSINT 2 or OSINT 3, you will also be able to ask your questions during the weekly webinar Q&A session.

  • How many courses does Echo offer?

    We currently offer three courses online. We offer 16 courses in-person and provide those courses several times a year. Our plan is to continue making our in-person courses available online when possible.

  • How many hours of webinar time do I get with the instructors?

    For the OSINT 2 course, you will get up to five hours of webinars both individually and in groups. For OSINT 3, you get up to 10 hours of webinars both individually and in groups.

  • I am just taking the non-certifying OSINT course, if I don't have webinar hours how do I communicate with the instructor if I have a question?

    All students, regardless of which course they are enrolled, can contact the instructors anytime via e-mail. During normal business hours, and when available, students can also contact the instructors via chat.

  • What is the Echo Student to Teacher Program?

    We have spent a lot of time perfecting our process for developing online courses and we realize that OSINT is a large field and growing and the applications for OSINT are nearly endless. For students that successfully complete one of our level 2 or level 3 courses, we offer them the ability to build their own OSINT course after we train them on our methods and processes for online course development. Depending on the course topic and length, Echo will compensate graduates for building these courses. For more information about this program, contact Buddy Jericho at bjericho@echoanalyticsgroup.com.
