A private investigator should possess excellent observation skills, understand psychology, have a curious nature and a heightened intuition. A background in law, policing, security, finance, debt collections, military, and computer sciences, etc., may be an asset but is not a requirement for the Private Investigation program.
Private investigators may be called upon to carry out a variety of investigations; so too are there different methods used in these investigations, e.g., telephone, surveillance, background checks, interviewing and simply talking to people. They are required to function within the law, ensuring evidence collection is done within this framework, and therefore, admissible in court.
Our Private Investigation certificate of achievement provides the tools necessary to prepare for the Ministry of Corrections and Community Services test. It also provides invaluable information for those interested in pursuing a career in private investigation. The certificate consists of six courses, each six weeks in duration. They may be taken in any order and are provided completely online.
