I have become a private investigator not because I truly wanted to do it from the very beginning.
Dreaming To Become A Private Investigator
In fact, I already had a job before I decided that I would like to try it out. I have told my family about it and they thought that I was kidding. It seems that there are some people who still do not take private investigators seriously but I have always taken detectives seriously. They have always been interesting to me and at some point during my childhood; I may have fantasized about it a bit. Of course, at that time, I still did not know that there were so many things that would have to be done to actually become one of the detectives that I have always admired.
I researched about it and I realized that there are certain things that are needed to become a licensed and certified private investigator. Some of these things on how to become a private detective are the following:
- Online Modular Courses – This is the type of method that I chose in order to learn more about becoming a private investigator. This is also the one that was recommended to me by my friends.
- Internship – I had to make sure that I took an internship with a private detective firm. From there, I have managed to work with other detectives who thankfully treated me like I was one of them. I think that this has made my confidence level a lot. It was boosted well.
- Certificate – After finishing the modular courses that I took online, that was the time when I was told that I have passed all of the requirements to pass the course and I was given a certificate that I printed. I even aimed to get the Equivalent Online Study Award and I have to say that I worked hard in order to reach the requirements in order to get it. It took some effort but it is all worth it in the end.
- BTEC SIA – I had to make sure that I will get the accreditation of BTEC SIA because I knew then that without it, it will be harder to become hired as a private detective. It will be even harder to set up my own private detective firm.
In case you would like to learn more about the course that I have taken, I took information technology course. I wanted to learn more about how to work out various high tech gadgets and for my very first job, I liked the fact that I knew what I wanted to do. It was able to impress the client because I was able to give the details that were being asked from me immediately.
Even though it is not directly related to the course that I have taken, I also learned to have great research method skills because one of the things that I have learned is that more and more people are asking people to get more information about others. These skills will be very helpful in uncovering important details. Having great research skills make me more professional than other private investigators.
My co Private Investigators and I decided to take additional government program in order to learn more about how to become better at the tasks that we have to do. The program has truly helped us develop more skills that we are utilizing now to become great private investigators.
