Private Investigator Company Exam Test Prep 4 Hour Course

Price: $75 classroom or $100 via telephone

A Private Investigator, or PI, is a person who undertakes investigations, usually for a private citizen or some other entity not involved with a government or police organization. Licensed Private Investigators often work for attorneys in civil cases or on behalf of a defense attorney. Many licensed private detectives work for insurance companies to investigate suspicious claims. Many private investigators are hired obtain proof of adultery or other illegal conduct to establish grounds for a divorce. Collecting evidence of adultery or other "bad behavior" by spouses and partners is still one of the most profitable activities that licensed private investigators perform.


A Private Investigator conducts investigations to locate the whereabouts of missing persons, finds the location and/or recovers lost or stolen property; finds the causes and origin of, or responsibility for fires, or libels, or losses, or accidents, or injuries to real or personal property. Private Investigators conduct investigations for fee, hire or reward.
