Our Testimonial

I wasn’t quite sure that I am ready to share my personal information with anyone. However, Private Investigators made everything seem easy. They were very cooperative, made me feel comfortable working with them and eventually helped me a lot. I would highly recommend the team of Private Investigators to everyone who is reluctant of cooperating with private investigators.

Ken Wright

I had an eerie feeling that someone was following me so I decided to contact Private Investigators. The entire team was extremely helpful throughout the entire investigation and they made me feel very comfortable and calm around them. I would always be grateful for their help!

Private Investigator/Detective Training Courses

Are you wanting to become a private investigator? Do you think you have what it takes to join our team? If the answer is yes, here is what you need to do.

How to become a private investigator?

In order to become a private investigator, you must have some type of private investigator training. Although there are not any legal requirements to become a private investigator, employers may prefer some type of experience or training. It helps for you to show that you are forward thinking and actively persuing your passions. To complete your training, you may either need to go to a private investigation training centre or you could complete your online private investigator training.

Our company has specialised training courses that can help you prepare for the SIA registration. Each course is different and is priced individually, however you might want to take a look at the packages we have as they are a real bargain.

Level 3 Award for Professional Investigators

This private investigation training is considered to be the standard qualification for everyone who is willing to register, according to SIA. This type of course focuses on the following set of skills:

How to research and obtain information from different sources

How to make interviews

How to conduct surveillance operations (this refers both to cover and overt operations)

How to gather all relevant information that can help you in the investigation

How to plan the course of action and produce quality reports. This refers to the ability to identify the object of the investigation, cope with any conflict of interest that might arise and present your conclusions

How to secure the information and to make sure everything remains confidential. In addition to this you also need to be familiar with the relevant laws and comply with them at all times.

Our company provides four types of support for the candidates who are interested in the qualifications:

The first option is a 5-day course that includes all learning opportunities. At the end you are required to go through an examination process. The price for this is from 595 + vat.
