The private investigating course need not only appeal to those wanting to start an agency of their own, but also to anyone wanting to have more investigative power / skills in their own business and private life. Our private investigating course is intended to equip the student with many means of accessing all forms of information in a legal and moral manner.
Private investigators, or 'private eyes', work for the legal profession, councils, insurance companies, individuals or groups of people to undertake investigatory law services or investigative due diligence. Professional investigators work secretly to gather information and to check facts for their clients.
Many private detectives own their own agencies and work for themselves, with flexible hours and the freedom to make their own business decisions.
