I recently took part in an OSINT course with ESS. I had never done anything like it before so was unsure of what to expect. Having now completed it, I can honestly say that I would recommend it to anyone.
The course was very intense but enjoyable and covered a huge range of topics. It was full of useful tools, methods and tricks that will be invaluable for work and for personal life. Both tutors have extensive knowledge and experience in their field and they relate real situations to the course content being taught. On top of this, we were given practical assessments to try out our newly acquired skills. They were well designed and it was fun to put what we had learned in to practice right away.
I happened to be one of the lucky few freelance candidates on this particular course, most were from a government agency. At first I was concerned that I would struggle to keep up, but both tutors readily answered all questions and gave me all the support I needed. They also offer ongoing support to candidates after the course, which really goes above and beyond.
I thoroughly enjoyed the whole course and will certainly be taking other courses with ESS as soon as I can.
