The course title seemed a bit misleading. While we did cover the dark web for some period of time. It seemed the course spent more time on social media, online investigations, undercover ops and topics I did not see as very relevant to the dark web. I always learn something in these classes and I did. I do think the instructor knows his material even though he admitted he did more child abuse type cases.

Down below, where it says "Are you interested in hosting or purchasing a Police Technical course?" It only gives an option for "Yes" which if I don't click it, won't allow me to proceed with submitting the evaluation. The class seemed more geared toward tracking IP addresses/EXIF etc...and not a whole lot of time on how to navigate the dark web, tricks for getting around etc.

I have taken a course that was similar in nature. This course could easily be a three day course. OPSEC is extremely important and I felt it was not explored enough. Utilizing Picasa to build a profile on a target should be explored in future classes, especially if you have some images of the target and want to verify if they have aliases. Overall David Ferris was a great instructor and conveyed his points well. He was knowledgeable and confident in his answers.

I feel the class could be a day or two longer to break the information down more for the investigators who have very minimal background in computers.
