Become a Private Investigator
“Equivalent to a Harvard education in private investigation! This is the only course we will currently recommend.” –Pursuit Magazine, January
The first thing you should know about our online private investigator training program is that it was created by successful PIs who are working "in the field" every single day. This is not a course created by staff writers who interviewed various “experts” way back in 1993 and completely missed the most important secrets of how to become a real working private eye today in 2009!
If you were to try and print our complete online PI course you would need more that an entire ream of paper because it comes in at well over 500 "zero fluff"pages and more than an hour of video content with new information and video being added regularly. We are not going to offer you individual “modules” that we’ll send to you over the course of an entire year just so that we can string you along and charge more money either.
No, if you are serious about becoming a private investigator then you need all of this information as qucikly as possible, which is why you are here right now. No one has quenched their thirst from a slow drip of water; instead we’ll give you a fire hose full of information, right now, and at a price well below what the slow-to-ship modules are going to cost you.
What am I going to learn?
Being a good private investigator means that you are going to gather information and critical intelligence through the use of tradecraft; by talking to people (interviewing and taking statements), watching people and places (surveillance), researching the backgrounds of people, businesses and events (background investigations) and of course, you are going to have to find people (skip tracing). Everything we know about these subjects has carefully been documented- you will get up to speed very quickly from our decades of experience developed through hard fought battles and trial & error.
Being a successful private investigator, however, requires much more than just tradecraft. You have to know the ins and outs of this business; you have to be armed with a wealth of unusual and impossible to find information and understand the business of private investigation. What about ethics and the laws that govern private investigators?
Yes, we cover all of that in our online course but we’ve even taken it a huge step farther.
In our course you will also find the actual forms, statements taking scripts, client contracts, subcontractor agreements and written policies we use in our business at CompassPoint Investigations. We’ve even provided eleven (11) real examples of the very investigative reports provided to our clients as a result of these very different investigations. Why? Because you cannot buy this type of information anywhere and it would take you at least 15 years, a lot of frustration and many sleepless night to develop on your own. You should be working IN your business not ON it. Order our online course today and it’s like you are already a decade and a half further along than if you train with anyone else.

Don’t let the low cost fool you! Because we deliver the PI course via the Internet we have no printing, mailing or distribution costs other than to rush you a beautiful certificate of completion when you complete the course. We only needed to create the entire course and website once and it is already paid for. There is no need for us to charge our clients a silly amount of money for courses that cannot be updated regularly and often.
How often do you update your online course?
Our online private investigator course is updated at least once a month with hard hitting tips, advice and techniques learned by private investigation professionals who know what works and what doesn’t. Learn from our mistakes and avoid similar frustration and failures. You do not have to reinvent the wheel!
The investigations industry is changing at break neck speed. Breakthroughs in technology and software are always creating new ways to do our job more effectively and with more efficiency (that means work less and make more). The online format allows us to update our PI training programs with the latest up-to-the-minute techniques and rarely shared secrets so that you will be educated and "in the know." If we had printed the course, it would be very difficult, if not impossible, for us to make instant changes and additions to our material. This is why the other courses, videos and book grow stale after only a year or so.
How long will it take me to complete the online course?
First, take as long as you need. It is extremely important to us that you do not rush your way through this massive course because you will not learn anything by skimming over 500+ pages of extremely important material just so that you can get a certificate to hang on your wall; the certificate is very nice but the information in the course is much more important. Our most successful students have taken an entire month on occasion and asked us lots of questions before finishing up.
You do not have to finish the course all at once. You will create a username and password in the ordering process that you can log into the course whenever you want and from wherever you want until you have finished.
Having said that, it is entirely possible to complete the course as fast as you can read and absorb 500+ pages of material; we have had students complete the entire course in less than 6 hours.
Will there be an exam at the end of the “become a private eye” course?
Yes. An exam is essential in ensuring that you have learned the most important points in the training material and is required before we will send you a certificate of completion. The exam is open book and you will see a comprehensive review prior to taking the exam. The exam is taken online and we will grade the exam at our office. Your scores are strictly confidential and you can take the exam as many times as you need to in order to pass without any additional cost or fee whatsoever. Don’t worry about the exam, we want you to succeed!
What do I do after I complete the course?
Immediately after submitting the exam we lay out a plan for you to use to take the next step towards becoming a licensed private investigator. If you get confused or need help, we will provide you with our direct personal contact information; we are only a phone call or an email away. We will do our best to make this a rewarding experience for you and help you with your goal of becoming a real working private investigator.
Do you offer job placement assistance?
No, we do not guarantee you a job after completing a course and any PI training provider that does offer “assistance” is only going to direct you to one of a few online job boards anyway. There are too many variables in the private investigation business, your background and experience, state licensing laws, etc., etc. to make empty promises and have you upset with us if you do not land your “dream job” right away.
What we will do however, is to teach you how to market yourself, network properly in the right places, become attractive to potential employers and where to find PI employment listings so that you will have the edge over others competing for the same job opportunities. These concepts are so important that we’ve dedicated several chapters to them specifically.
