i2 Analyst's Notebook

During this four-day training course, you will learn how to use i2 Analyst's Notebook as a tool in answering complex questions such as 'Find out if there is a connection between a series of burglaries and a series of telephone conversations'. The examples and issues are derived from law enforcement cases (car theft, drug transport, and robbery) and for the financial sector (fraud, money laundering, skimming, money laundering). You need to be using i2 Analyst's Notebook in your work to register. 

For whom is this training intended?
The training is intended for researchers and analysts who are (or will be) involved in visualizing and (in-depth) analyzing research data (for tactical, strategic, or operational analysis). i2 Analyst's Notebook is mainly used (usually in combination with iBase User) by analysts from the police, army, large private or government organizations, banks, non-profits, and insurance companies. This training is also ideal for (prospective) students of the Analyzing Information (AvI) course of the Police Academy.
