Nice Overview from an Investigator Viewpoint
by Michael Litton

This training exposes the student to many features resident in the Maltego platform that are not obvious or intuitive. These features improve the rigor of Maltego in an investigation. There is much Maltego itself has to offer via Paterva CTAS that can improve results obtained from paid third party transform solution add-ons that investigators would likely opt for. I am much more confident in using Maltego as a result of this training and recommend it for others.

This course is really beneficial. They have small videos on every Maltego feature (even the ones you'll never find by yourself). The instructor's explanations are clear, and it makes it easy to watch the course, especially considering the examples that give you the ability to try everything you've learned.
