25 Top Private Investigator Trainings
PI Now.com recently published a top 25 list for private investigator trainings. As noted in the article, picking a training course for investigation is difficult as no formal training is required in order to become an investigator. Many people enter the world of criminal investigation as former law enforcement or with a degree in criminal justice. However, the world of investigation has become more complicated. Specialized training can really make the difference especially in the areas of fraud, technology, computer crimes, and complex cases. PI Now ranked 25 programs based upon the following criteria: the type of program available, college accreditation, what information is available, application requirements and license qualification. A training program available right here in Washington is ranked number one(!)...University of Washington Certificate in Private Investigation. The UW program covers such topics as private investigator licensing preparation, criminal and civil investigations, crime scene investigation, discovery analysis, report writing, and courtroom testimony. If you are considering a career as a criminal investigator, this list is a good place to start!
