C-T Watch Inc prides itself in a tradition of intelligence. Our founder’s father has been in the intelligence community from the days of the Office of Strategic Services (OSS) a pre curser agency to the CIA. In more recent times our intelligence capabilities have been highly sought after by fusion centers, federal law enforcement, city and state law enforcement as well as the US Special Operations Command, this is a direct result of our ability to recruit “high level” HUMINT Subject Matter Experts, a new Pentagon edict for strengthening the intelligence capabilities of the US Military, and the cross pollination of the intelligence communities within law enforcement and military special missions. Since 2010 C-T Watch has been awarded US Special Operations Command and Intelligence Community contracts to support and train our Special Operators and Intelligence Officers who put their lives on the line to keep America safe.

The Analyst Support to HUMINT course is tailored for purely analysts, purely collectors, or a combination there-of, who leverage HUMINT information and collection in support of Requirements Driven/Mission Oriented activities. The course is designed to bridge the gap between all-source analysis and HUMINT collection, aligning perspectives by providing students a common set of principles and methodologies for use in their respective disciplines. Through classroom instruction and hands-on practical exercises, students are exposed to the mind sets that often keep them apart. And through practice of established doctrine (F3EA, Target Centric Analysis, and creation of a common Mission Mind set) students form a unity of effort that improves overall effectiveness and interoperability.

Of the many challenges facing U.S. intelligence officers, the ability to detect foreign intelligence surveillance is a critical skill requiring as much practical hands-on experience as traditional platform training. While the concepts of detecting foreign surveillance are relatively easy to teach, the ability to detect surveillance is more difficult and demands not only practice, but also a certain degree of confidence and self-assurance that can only come from practice, failure and success, and clear, honest critiques from experienced instructors. The Surveillance Detection course combines classroom instruction with hands- on practical exercises. The course is based on a progressive learning curve with students receiving valuable classroom instruction on the basics of detecting surveillance before being led to conduct street runs. Each student will conduct multiple street runs with both pre-designated and original street routes. Students will also apply their new abilities to aid them in creating a Travel Security Plan. The small instructor to student ratio allows each student ample time to seek information and receive feedback from advanced instructors specializing in surveillance detection.
