2016 IALEIA/LEIU Annual Training Event- New Orleans, LA

on .

Registration is open!

IALEIA/LEIU Annual Training Event

Complete the Registration Flyer below to attend the 2016 IALEIA/LEIU Annual Training Event will be held in New Orleans, LA April 25-29, 2016 at the Hilton Hotel, Riverside.  As usual, we plan to have an exciting, informative, and well-rounded program that will cater to all intelligence professionals. We are continuing the three certification tracks—the “Advanced Analytical Skills”, our basic “Fundamentals in Criminal Intelligence”, and the certification track we added last year for “Supervisors and Managers”.  We will also feature many sponsors and exhibitors—just as in the past—that will be demonstrating the latest in support.  Registration for this has remained the same:  $450 for IALEIA and LEIU members and $650 for non-members.

Advanced Open Source Intelligence Techniques Training (OSINT)

We will also be offering an exciting special session of OSINT.  For those of you who have attended the IALEIA/LEIU Annual Training Event for the past several years--it picks up where Michael Bazzell's live conference sessions have left off.  For those of you who attended his 90 minute workshops in the past—you will remember the high demand those classes created and we are pleased that Michael has agreed to do a full day as an added bonus this year!  He will demonstrate and distribute a custom software pack with over 40 free tools that will aid an analyst/investigator during any type of investigation. The OSINT training will take place on the Sundaybefore the regular training event starts and will be for a full 8 hour day. Although this training is being held in conjunction with the IALEIA/LEIU Annual Training Event in New Orleans—it is a separate training effort. The registration and costs must be maintained separately.  We have, however, made the registration as easy as possible.  Registration for this will be $150 for IALEIA and LEIU members and $200 for non-members.

Event Application: 

A new feature this year will include an Event App (CrowdCompass) that will take the place of all of our “paper-drive” documents.  This app will available for download on any Apple or Android device after the first of the year (we will notify you when it is available).  It will include the agenda, maps, presentation summaries, speaker bios, and we will be using it to capture attendance.  For those who do not have an Apple or Android device—the same information will be available from a web location and can be viewed or downloaded.  This will allow us to “go green” and allow us to use the technology currently used in many events.  There will be many other advantages to this app and we will periodically keep you updated on our progress and what you can expect (for instance we were just notified that CrowdCompass has just partnered with Uber so you can use that feature with the click of a button).

Registration for Either or Both of These Training Efforts:

Registration for both training efforts can be found on the LEIU website at 

When you click “Register Now” it will allow you to choose the following options: 

“LEIU/IALEIA Annual Training Event – Only”,

the“OSINT Training Event – Only”; or the

“LEIU/IALEIA & OSINT Training Events – Both”

The costs for each option are displayed.  If you choose the combined option—you need only register one time.  We will automatically register you in both training events.  Do not register two times. We encourage you to register online but if you absolutely do not have access to a computer--use the attached form to register.  This registration form is just for the LEIU/IALEIA Training Event and does not register you for the OSINT Training.  If you cannot register online and want to attend both of the events—fill out this registration tri-fold and send it to us.  Include a note that you also want to attend the OSINT Training and we will register you for both.
