Each course is structured using tried and tested training methodologies, and delivered to Shortest Path Training’s usual high standards, utilising many years of proven experience training organisations around the globe at both a local and national level.

The learning environment is accessed through a web browser, and on starting the course you will be guided by defined learning objectives, video explanations, and examples; and will then have the opportunity to practice each lesson by downloading course materials and using your own copy of i2 Analyst’s Notebook to complete exercises. To reinforce and check your learning we have also included a series of multiple-choice questions for you to complete as you progress.
