NITA Student Spotlight: Melody Haase
The National Investigative Training Academy, Inc. (NITA) is committed to providing students with state approved, enjoyable and rewarding online learning experiences. We had the opportunity to sit down with Melody Haase, a recent NITA graduate, to find out why her team at CES, LLC. chose NITA to train the firm’s research analysts.
CES is a professional firm that provides investigative, intelligence, and analytical services to the U.S. Government, private companies, and law firms. Mrs. Haase frequently conducts research on projects related to due diligence, litigation and pre-discovery, and professional sports. She has trained attorneys; federal, state, and local law enforcement; intelligence analysts; and private investigators on open source investigation techniques, data fusion methodology, analysis of mobile forensics data, and dark web exploitation.
Thanks, Melody, for speaking with us today. Why was it important for you to further your career with NITA’s courses?
“As research analyst and online investigator, it’s my role to track an individual’s digital footprint. I use the Internet to research anything and everything about people. In this role, I also train law enforcement officers to utilize online research techniques so they can enhance their own investigations.”
Why did you choose NITA?
“I researched a number of programs and investigative schools before selecting NITA. We ultimately chose NITA because of the school’s reputation and convenience. Because NITA’s courses are online, I was able to maintain my daytime responsibilities and fulfill all requirements for licensure in the evening. Two other analysts from my firm also completed the program with me.”
Would you recommend NITA to others?
“I would absolutely recommend NITA’s courses to others. It’s a cost efficient, convenient and speedy way to achieve a quality education online. Sandra was particularly helpful and the overall student relations experience was exceptionally pleasant. I would firmly encourage anyone seeking to further their career in the field to explore NITA for their continuing education.”
