Learning Tree, in partnership with the experts at Whitespace Solutions, has developed a comprehensive ABI curriculum for executives, Intelligence analysts and technical staff working within the Intelligence Community who wish to become knowledgeable and skilled at ABI practices. As part of the curriculum, attendees can achieve Specialist and Expert Certifications through realistic, simulation-based training environments. Learning Tree ABI courses are pre-scheduled and available at Learning Tree Education Centers, or can be customized for delivery on-site at the customer's preferred location.

"Activity-based intelligence focuses not on specific targets but on events, movements and transactions in a defined area," explains Victoria Nguyen of Whitespace and co-author of the ABI courses. "ABI is emerging as a powerful tool to discover connections among people, places and things. This focus on interactions is the fundamental difference between ABI and previous intelligence integration efforts, which were often confined to a single agency and aimed at a specific target."

With ABI training, attendees will focus on learning how to:
  • Analyze multiple large, diverse data (Big Data) streams in real time
  • Leverage ABI tools and techniques needed to develop software for ABI analysis
  • Understand and address emerging security threats
  • Create meaningful ABI collection strategies to enable correlation analysis
  • Uncover Patterns of Life (PoL) using ABI techniques

"ABI equips your workforce with a set of principles for data analysis and optimized resource allocation that are adaptable across missions and markets," said Greg Adams, Learning Tree's Product Development leader. "With ABI training, analysts learn the skills necessary to provide more value to decision makers using the data your organization already has in hand, and unravel complex issues at a speed and with the granularity necessary to drive action."

Learning Tree's ABI curriculum and certifications are intended for organizations within the U.S. Intelligence Community and supporting contractors who wish to implement ABI methods for mission success. Analysts, software developers or managers gain knowledge of the key concepts involved in ABI, and processes, tools and skills to develop and use ABI methods. The ABI curriculum is only available to U.S. citizens.
