Private Investigator Diploma

NCFE Accredited Level 4

A year from now, you could be a private investigator. And as you walk down the street - any urban street - you’ll see things differently.
You notice a man sitting in a car, trying to look unobtrusive.
You see a woman weeping silently in her kitchen.
You spot three youths shoplifting.
An ex-convict is walking down the other side of the street.
And there’s a white truck that looks, well, out of place.
All around you the rest of the population goes about their business – unaware of the crime, the dramas and the threats surrounding them.

The range of jobs done by a PI is extraordinary. You’ll find missing people, track down defaulters, and investigate commercial theft for business owners.

You’ll check prospective partners for men and women. You’ll carry out surveillance. And gather evidence against criminals.

Yet the work is flexible. You can fit the job around your existing commitments. And it means an end to commuting. Many people reclaim extra hours every day – hours that you can spend with your family or earn more money.

Unlike franchises or other jobs, it takes very little money to become a PI. All you need is a desk and a telephone. Plus the knowledge that we’ll teach you.
