Become a Professional Investigator
The licensing and regulation of Private Investigators in the UK will affect all aspects of investigation’ in the private sector such as interviewing, taking statements, conducting investigations, locating debtors, people searching, surveillances and serving legal documents.
As the likelihood of regulation for the private investigator sector becomes apparent our training section: Private Investigator Training UK is an approved SFJ Centre that offers the Level Three Award for Professional Investigators.
The Private Investigator Sector in the UK is not currently licensed, but, the Industry is on the verge of licencing under the Security Industry Authority.
We offer both licence linked training and general investigator training to supply the knowledge and expertise to operate and maintain a successful private investigation operation. Please remember the key points:
The first Level 3 Professional Investigator Award training course linked to Licensing that was approved by the Security Industry Authority was completed in 2011, in Surrey. Today, we offer classroom and distance learning options centred around the SFJ Level 3 for Professional Investigators.
Next Exam sittings:
- Leeds Exam Centre: Vicarage Chambers, 9 Park Square East, Leeds, LS1 2LH, Saturday, 11th December 2021 (09.30 – 12.30 hours)
The legal and commercial sectors are looking for capable investigators who can demonstrate that they have taken the time to study and have completed an accredited exam.
A Level 3 Professional Investigator Award proves that you understand the law and ethics as they relate to private investigations and that you can demonstrate your credibility, integrity and competence.
Essentially, new comers to the industry must consider further training courses – use the Level 3 Award as a starting off point. Remember that Burton Regan Limited / Private Investigator Training UK also provide training in, “How to actually do the job”.
