Private Investigator Course

This page will explain all about the private investigator course we run across the UK.

Private Investigator Course

Although we are primarily an operational investigation, surveillance and security business, we also offer training services for private clients and corporations. For private clients we’re currently in the process of becoming an accredited training provider through a national qualification organisation to provide a private investigator course, surveillance course and other SIA security courses.

Regarding those interested in attending a private investigator course, we will soon be offering:

Level 3 Award in Private Investigation

By attending our courses students will be taught the academic knowledge required to take the relevant exam which, upon successfully passing, will result in being awarded the level 3 qualification. Students will also be taught practical real world skills which are used day in and day out by professional investigators.

The contents and syllabus of the course are set by the awarding body. A rough outline of the topics included in the course are listed below:
