For Law Enforcement Officers, Military Intelligence and
Special Operations Elements


In the last decade, the threat from radical extremists based in the Middle East, Europe, North America, South America and Southeast Asia has grown significantly. These terrorist acts and violent activities are focused on U.S. and Western targets, business interests, military and government entities and local populations. The most effective, surgical, and cost-effective measure to counter this threat is the development of good human intelligence sources within these violent extremist groups who can report on the identities, plans and intentions of the groups and their operatives. This is a skill set that is rare and unique in this world— and is based on years of street-level experience, coupled with in-depth religious, cultural and political knowledge of the various extremist groups, their training methods, ideologies, target decks, and radicalization and recruitment processes. Our course instructors have 40+ years of on-the-ground experience in HUMINT operations against radical terrorist groups. This course is the cornerstone of ADRIDEN Global’s HUMINT Training program.
