Apr 19, 2001, 01:00 ET from Open Source Solutions, Inc.

    WASHINGTON, April 19 /PRNewswire/ -- According to Dr. Ran Hock, the author
 of The Extreme Searchers Guide to Web Search Engines (Information Today,
 2000), "There are well over 3 billion pages of accessible data on the
 Internet, including information on governments, countries, companies,
 conditions, organizations, and individuals.  Data ranges from the rigorously
 reviewed to rumor. The researcher who will profit from this is the researcher
 who uses the right tools."
     Dr. Hock, founder of Online Strategies, is a frequent contributor to
 Online and a regular columnist for CyberSkeptic.   In the course of training
 over 8,000 researchers, Dr. Hock has refined a full-day course that includes
 segments on Web "finding tools", Web directories, Web search engines,
 metasites, portals and vortals, key intelligence sites, news on the Web, and
 alerting services.  His class is widely regarded as the industry "gold course"
 in this area.
     On 7 May 2001, in Washington, D.C., his course will be taught to
 government intelligence professionals from around the world.  The class is
 open to the public for additional registrations.
     Dr. Hock's one-day class will be followed by the Intermediate Open Source
 Officer (OSO) class from Open Source Solutions, Inc.  Participants in the
 second day, available by itself or as part of a larger three-day international
 conference, will receive training from seven instructors led by Mr. Robert
 Heibel, FBI veteran and founder of the Mercyhurst University Research and
 Intelligence Analysts Program (RIAP), and of the Generic Intelligence Training
 Initiative (GITI).
     Intermediate OSO training covers the integration of Internet and
 commercial fee for service searching (Jenny Zullo), grey literature as the
 frontier of knowledge (Julia Gelfand), desktop software options for automated
 intelligence analysis (Claudia Porter), early warning methods on global risk
 and instability (John Heidenrich), and specialty topics on law enforcement
 intelligence about gangs (Roy Godson) and national intelligence in the 21st
 Century (Loch Johnson and Greg Treverton).  The day concludes with a reception
 during which the students and instructors can socialize and further expand
 their networks of global professional intelligence contacts.
