Recognition and certification
In 2016, the International Anti Crime Academy offered the training Module 1 & Module 2 of the training DIGOS/Registered Open Source Intelligence Analyst for assessment to the Center for Post Initial Education (CPION). This organization is the official point of contact for educational institutions that wish to register their post-graduate courses as official registered courses. The CPION is the quality monitor for (e.g.) the Dutch Permanent Education Foundation (SPEN). Only programs that meet strict quality criteria qualify for the predicate registered training program and are also included in the Dutch Training Database.
A condition for registration by the SPEN is that the teaching material offered, in this case the DIGOS/Registered Open Source Intelligence Analyst®, in the professional opinion of the Advisory Committee affiliated with the institute, in terms of level, depth, topicality and relevance to the labor market, meets the expectations that may be set with regard to registered training. When assessing a registered training, matters such as content, duration, number of teaching hours, study load, practical assignments and exam assignments are tested and monitored by this Advisory Committee.
The procedure mentioned above has resulted in the International Anti Crime Academy being allowed to issue a registered and recognized diploma for the training:
DIGOS/Registered Open Source Intelligence Analyst®.
In order to continue to guarantee the quality and relevance of these courses to the labor market, the International Anti Crime Academy has also set up an external OSINT Advisory Committee. This committee consists of members who actively perform work in the following sectors:
- Sector Investigation (semi-government)
- Sector Intelligence (government)
- Sector Civil investigation and supervision
The Advisory Committee supervises and advises on the connection of the training DIGOS/Registered Open Source Intelligence Analyst® to the workplace in the aforementioned sectors.
