Behaviour Profiling short online course:

Being able to profile is a skill that extends beyond the scope of criminal investigations, it is also a vital skill in such fields as recruitment and human resources. By learning to profile you will be able to understand human behaviour better and gain insight into what makes us buy a particular product.

The skills you will gain from this course also extend to helping children with special educational needs and identifying behaviour patterns or characteristics, such as Antisocial Personality Disorder or narcissism. Behaviour profiling is also an essential skill in the workplace as it will allow you to identify the most suitable employees for promotion, or to look for signs of personality disorders. In addition, you will acquire a working knowledge of human behaviour, which can help you interpret a person's mental state or identify clinical conditions.
