Your Mission, Should You Choose to Accept It...

In the world of international espionage, the truth is often stranger than fiction.  The Spy Lab Experience, presented by the intelligence experts at SMI, provides students with an entertaining - yet highly-informative - look at how "spying" really works.  Former CIA officers will provide unclassified case studies that demonstrate how "the world's second oldest profession" actually works, and will stress why the need for intel gathering is more important than ever.  But, this isn't just a lecture based course.  Students will be mentally challenged as they learn the "dark arts" of spycraft.  Concluding the training with their own customized intelligence missions.  

"The other instructors and I have been teaching intelligence officers, from across the the globe, the fundamentals of espionage for years.  These are not some Hollywood gimmicks we are sharing with the students.  These are actual - unclassified - operational training tactics that the students can utilize in their daily lives.  Useful skills such as recognizing the threat of elicitation, understanding the principles of counter-surveillance, assessing an area to determine ingress and egress routes, and the art of persuasion are just some of the topics we will cover.  The course is meant to be fun, but the students will also come away with a new perspective on how the shadowy world of intelligence really works."

- Luke Bencie, Managing Director of SMI
