Every since childhood, many young people have been drawn to the world of being a Private Investigator. Books, like Sherlock Holmes and even cartoons featuring Q.T. Hush and Shamus helped create the fantasy many young boys had about being a P.I. In the 1980’s, television shows that starred fictional Private Investigators Stormed the screen. Such shows as Magnum P.I., Remington Steele, and Moonlighting all featured handsome actors playing the roles of a P.I. The lead actors in these films drove girls wild, and even more reinforced the long time desire for boys to live a life with police style action and girls falling over themselves to see them.

It’s not too late to have the dream of being a Private Investigator

Getting training as a P.I. is not out of reach for anyone with the ambition to do it. There are Private Investigator certification courses available online, and through reputable colleges. Students in these courses can take their classes through a distance education setting, and obtain their certification without having to attend a college campus that can take precious time out of a busy adult’s life.

Online Private Investigator training can be completed in under a year. Students will simply use a visual interface provided by the school to send and receive materials. There are no set course times that students must be present for, which allow the student to log in at any time of the day or night. Real instructors interact with the student via email and chat options, and students can interact with fellow students to form study groups or to help each other with questions and answers.

Be your own boss

Private Investigators have many options available. They can set up private businesses, or even take on employment with others. Police agencies, attorneys, insurance claims companies, and task forces all often utilize the professionalism that Private Investigators have to offer. In any case, a trained Private Investigator has options, and those options allow the P.I. to decide their own future.
