Course Details

Learn from Investigators that have worked in the field and around the world. One of the hardest parts of getting a start as a Private Investigator! is Getting Hired. With Novel Data Investigative Learnings Private Investigator or Private Detective training courses, you will gain knowledge and meaningful tangible skills to reduce or eliminate the risk to employers in hiring someone with little or no experience.
Aspiring Investigators often think about the physical license as the main goal of the start of their journey as a Private Investigator. The regulatory licensing is important but employers view a license, similar to that of a driver's license, its a requirement, but it does not demonstrate or indicate that you have experience or skills to make an immediate positive impact on an assignment or their business.
​When you are new to the Private Investigation or Private Detective industry the fastest way to gain the necessary experience is to Get Hired with a reputable firm. Getting Hired without experience is not likely to happen. So, on one hand, you need the experience to Get Hired and on the other hand, you need to Get Hired to gain experience. This situation is referred to as a Catch-22 or a Paradox.
ICPI - 100 is a totally self-paced online distance learning course. The main purpose is to explain the industry in general and what is generally like when you are new and just starting out. This is important to demystify what people think being a Private Investigator is really like vs. what they think and see in the media, TV, or Films. Once completed your eyes will be wide open and you will be clear that you want to pursue becoming a Private Investigator or not. Students will also understand in general what is valuable before investing in the one thing outside of experience that will enable you to Get Hired, which is TRAINING.
