HUMINT Training & Professional Membership

Institute for European Intelligence and Security

The Institute for European Intelligence and Security provides innovative intelligence solutions driven by cutting edge research to key stakeholders in European security.

Training teams deliver courses in human intelligence and political operations to government, NGO and individual representatives. Courses enable students to operate in complex environments, conduct intelligence activity and deliver finished products.more

The Institute maintains a capstone course preparing students for professional registration. The General Service Course (GSC) based on the previous Level 3 Certificate in Secret Intelligence Operations and Level 3 Diploma in Human Intelligence Agent Operations. The new combined qualification is intended as a predecessor to professional registration, assuming unless direct-entry routes aren't warranted.

Developing an intelligence capability, operating in complex scenarios, conducting investigations, or enhancing understanding of the operating environment is supported with experience in various sectors, regions and a variety of subject matter experts.

Using our own extensive global network, covert agents, surveillance, undercover operations and a variety of other specialised techniques we have experience of covert operations in various fields. Some operations have included countering deception, conspiracy, commercial threats, anti-social behaviour and community disorder, computer network exploitation, direct action and terrorism, human trafficking, piracy, arms trafficking, child sexual exploitation, animal cruelty, smuggling, industrial espionage and counter-intelligence.
