Course Road Map

Here is what we are working on right now and what we plan to release:

  1. Updates to the Tactical Analysis Level 1 and 2 Programs.
    1. In the fall of 2015, the decision was made to eliminate the Tactical Analysis Elite Course from our offerings and add the key components to the Basic and Advanced Programs, making each of those programs stronger.
    2. The updated modules are currently being recorded and an announcement will be made upon their release.
    3. Any current or former students will have access to the newly designed course upon the release.
    4. Many of the modules that have been eliminated from the program will be made available through our blog.
