A Leader and Innovator in Education and Training
JMark develops and conducts tailored, dynamic professional education and training courses that feature highly interactive multimedia instruction in plenary and small group settings, rigorous study and reading programs, challenging and realistic practical exercises, and teaching/mentoring teams solely comprised of recognized experts and educators. Our rich training environments range from residential settings to immersive online learning experiences that include virtual courses, simulations, and game-based challenges.
JMark has offered advanced intelligence and security courses to thousands of U.S. military and other government professionals from operational, planning, and intelligence communities – including uniformed military and civilian, officer and non-commissioned officers from Air Force, Army, Marine, and Joint organizations, including unified combatant commands. JMark instructors and course managers have delivered hundreds of classes in advanced intelligence analysis alone to thousands of Air Force, Army, Navy, and Marine Corps students. Reflecting our global reach, JMark teaching teams have also developed and delivered intelligence and security training for international partners, including the Canadian Armed Forces, the Australian Defence Force, and the Royal Saudi Air Force.
Information Environment Advanced Analysis
JMark has developed and currently teaches an Information Environment Advanced Analysis (IEAA) course program sponsored by the Office of the Under Secretary of Defense for Intelligence (OUSD/I). The JMark team delivers these advanced courses at multiple sites throughout the U.S. and overseas to customers that include Joint and service-specific organizations, as well as foreign partners such as the Australian Defence Force and the British Armed Forces.
Our IEAA courses equip students working in joint operating settings with concepts, techniques and constructs that will enable them to anticipate, seize, and sustain the initiative in the information environment. Course graduates from the operational and intelligence communities will be able to characterize, forecast, target, wargame and assess the information environment in support of a joint force commander’s decision-making process.
OCTANE - Online Critical Thinking and Analysis Environment
JMark has developed a cutting-edge online learning experience for Air Force intelligence professionals through our creation of a dynamic web portal that will provide one-stop access to training courses, games, simulations, and mentor networks for more than 10,000 intelligence practitioners in the Air Force and other members of the U.S. Intelligence Community. This web/distance learning portal – called OCTANE or Online Critical Thinking and Analysis Environment – offers a highly interactive learning environment for improving critical thinking across the entire AF intelligence enterprise. The OCTANE portal will include:
- An analyst/mentor network
- Stimulating daily analytic challenges based on real-world scenarios
- The largest online collection of analytic websites, courses, readings, and videos
- Downloadable Apps for interactive learning on a wide-range of analytic topics
- A competitive, challenging game on intelligence tradecraft for mobile devices
- A series of gaming simulations in futuristic settings that reinforce analytical thinking
- Schedules of traditional analysis courses, including the Information Environment Advanced Analysis (IEAA) course
OCTANE will offer analysts access to mentors and fellow analysts around the globe as well as micro-learning bursts on critical thinking and structured analytic techniques in dynamic virtual learning formats. Providing an immersive training experience for millennial and modern learners anytime and anywhere, OCTANE will be available 24/7 through laptops, iPads, and smart devices.

What Our Students Say
“This was easily one of the best courses I have taken in my 14 years in intelligence. Top notch instructors and information. Some of the best training I have had in the military.”
“The best instructors I have ever had in an Air Force course; they clearly knew what they were teaching, and responded to every question we had. They were not “easy” instructors, but challenging in a way that made me think and want to do well. They stand out with providing the most positive and constructive learning environment in the classroom.”
“My instructor was a great teacher, awesome historian, very knowledgeable, and the most quintessential academic. I absolutely thrived from the dynamics in our small group because of his leadership and mentorship!”
“I would recommend this to all analysis-based career fields. This course should be taught/facilitated prior to DoD/AFSC/MOS/LE advanced technical schools.”
