How to use the Internet as an Effective Investigative Research Tool

Course Overview
Getting access to the right information quickly
and cheaply has never been more important
for commercial success.
Modern business should know everything it can
about the people and organisations it deals with,
the markets it operates in and any risks it faces.
The Internet represents the most cost effective
research gathering technology in the world. Yet
some of its most useful, specialised and publicly
available search tools are still relatively unknown,
seldom used and often poorly understood.
This course resolves these issues. It will equip you
with the skills and resources to use the Internet in
a far more effective way to obtain the information
that you need. It will help show you some new ways
to work smarter, and provide some useful tips for
staying safe.
