What does this “Become a PI – Advanced Course” get me?

We start your training with a 5 day intensive course. We begin your training and give you all the skill sets you will need to be a working PI. After the course you will then go on to practice these skills as you build up your experience level by dealing with different cases and investigations. No course can give you all the experience you need in a classroom in five days. To support you going forward we give you a 12 month telephone and email support package.

In the course we cover the content of all our courses and much more, including:-

  • Setting up your business – company or sole trader?
  • Specific marketing plan
  • Open source research methods
  • Using the internet as an investigative tool
  • Creating a legend
  • Trace enquiries
  • Surveillance training

  • General investigative techniques
  • Pre-sue reports and asset searches
  • Locus and statement taking
  • Process serving

All the knowledge to the Become a PI Advanced Course is detailed in our training manual. You get a copy of this during the course. It will be the foundation for the knowledge you will start to build throughout your PI career.

One of the most important aspects of this course is how to turn enquiries into paying money. Your course tutor will at times take active calls from prospective or existing clients. You will begin to learn one of the most difficult aspects of running a PI agency. This will help you gain valuable experience in understanding how to turn enquiries into fees.
