Are you Interested?


Online programs take time to build.

  • Our program is ready NOW.

Online programs take money to build.

  • We give our program to colleges and universities for FREE. There is $0 startup cost.

But what about ongoing costs?

  • You have $0 startup cost and $0 ongoing cost. You pay us when a student enrolls in the class. This means that you make money first, then you pay our fee from that money.

Online Programs take talent to build.

  • Our program is taught by top talent: sworn officers, investigators, and analysts that have been globally recognized and applauded for over 20 years.

Online Programs that others are scrambling to develop are the ‘talking head professor’ or the already exhausted ‘zoom class’ model. Or even slides on a screen with voice-over.

  • Our program is a “learn-by-doing” model where students engage with hands-on activities and exercises throughout the class to both learn and practice the material. We engage the learner with real-life scenarios, gray-area decisions, and true-life cases to work and solve. No talking head. No passive learning. The student is actively learning from beginning to end.

Do I need specific technology or an IT Team for this?

  • Nope. Our program is completely self-contained. If you already have a learning portal at your institution, we can load our program onto your portal. It’s plug and play. If you don’t have any technology in place or don’t want to use it, we provide a learning portal with our program. It will be branded to your institution and we manage the hosting and maintenance. You just send us students and we take care of the rest.

What about minimum class sizes or set start dates?

  • Not us! We offer rolling enrollment (a student can start a class any day, 365 days a year). This means no minimum class sizes – if you have 1 student, they can enroll. And even just 1 student is profitable since there is no ongoing cost to you to run our program. You only pay us when someone enrolls in a class.

What else?

  • Our program is global. The curriculum is recognized worldwide. This gives your institution international reach now, which means more enrollments for you.
  • There is no annual contract or commitment. If you try it and it doesn’t work for you, we can stop offering the program with just 30 days’ notice.
