Course Details

Learn from Investigators that have worked around the world. One of the hardest parts of getting a start as a PI is getting hired. With Novel Data, you will gain knowledge and meaningful tangible skills to help get you hired!
Aspiring Investigators think about the license as the start of their journey. Licensing is important but employers view a license similar to that of a driver's license, its a requirement but it does not demonstrate that you have experience or skills to get hired and succeed.
You need to get hired to gain experience. You need experience to get hired. This is a catch-22 we aim to solve.
ICPI - 100 is a totally self-paced online distance learning course. The course teaches about the industry and what is it like when you are "new" and just starting out. We demystify what being a PI is really like vs. TV, and films. Once completed your eyes will be wide open and you will be clear in your pursuit of becoming a Private Investigator.
I'm ready!
