Course description
This course introduces analysts to the broader concepts of connecting the dots through link analysis. A critical portion of conducting a successful analytical investigation is the ability to link together and understand the complexities of the connectedness between people and organizations. Introduction to Link Analysis (ILA) expands on the basic principles of link and association analyses explored in the Foundations of Intelligence Analysis Training (FIAT) while building a framework for more advanced methods such as social network analysis.

Students should note, some of the concepts covered in ILA are also covered in NW3C’s four-day FIAT instruction; therefore, some of the material in ILA can be duplicative for prior FIAT students

Expanding basic knowledge of link and association analysis

Explaining the process of social network analysis

Understanding the visual mapping and mathematical components associated with link and social network analyses


  Lab Requirements

Live Online Training Computer Hardware Mandatory Requirements

Live online classes are a convenient way to take our traditional in-person, instructor-led training from your own computer. When attending these courses, you will receive the same presentations and hands-on practical exercises that you would in our in-person classes. As such, having proper computer hardware to complete the course is a must.

If your computer hardware does not meet the mandatory requirements listed below, your experience in taking the class will be less than ideal and may also impact other students while the instructors take time to troubleshoot hardware and software problems.

Mandatory Operating System Requirements
• Your computer must be running Microsoft Windows 10 or macOS v10.12 or later.
• Smartphones and tablets are prohibited.

Mandatory Hardware Requirements
• A hard-wired, high-speed Internet connection is highly recommended. A wireless Internet connection may be sufficient; however, a wired connection will improve latency and buffering, and will also provide better connection speeds and stability overall. • Microphone and speakers. This is an interactive, live-training class and a microphone is required to interact with the instructor(s), ask questions, give answers, and provide insights to help enhance the overall class experience. We recommend a headset, headphones, or earbuds to eliminate feedback and echo when using your microphone.

Please have the following software installed prior to class:
• Download and install the Google Chrome web browser, if you do not already have it installed. It is the recommended web browser to launch our virtual lab environment.
• Download and install the Webex Chrome Extension, which is required to launch our live online training environment, Webex Training Center, and works hand-in-hand with the Webex Meetings application.

If you have any questions regarding the mandatory minimum hardware requirements, please contact liveonline@nw3c.org.
