IQ Level 3 Award for Professional Investigators

In order to acquire the level 3 investigator qualification (QCF) then learners must achieve 5 credits from completing the following mandatory units:

M/503/0680 Principles of gathering and using information for investigations

A/503/0679 Principles of planning and reporting investigations

To further enhance your private investigator training and to provide a greater depth of knowledge, our course is broken down into 4 core modules, which will guide you through the whole private investigator training process from start to finish.

The modules are as follows:

Module 1 Introduction to Investigations
This module will enable you to understand the origins and the world they encompass. You will also understand the principal work of a private investigator and the qualities needed in order to progress as an investigator.

Module 2 Types of Investigations
This module provides an understanding of some of the types of investigation you may find yourself completing. You will be guided through the following types of investigations, General Enquires, Tracing, Process Service, Surveillance and Due-Diligence.

Module 3 Unit 1 Principles of planning and reporting investigations
Module 3 Unit 2 Principles of gathering and using information for investigations
Module 4 Working within Private Investigations

This is the final module and helps you to understand continual professional development (CPD) of a professional investigator and how important it is to keep learning.

You will also be able to understand the diversity of the industry and directions of career you may choose.

All of these modules accumulate the work towards a level 3 qualification. The 5 day centre based course also includes a live exercise whereby you must prove your competence by gathering information on an individual, collating the information and finally planning a surveillance operation based on that individual and the brief provided. This part of the course allows us to assess everything that you have learnt throughout the course and also incorporates an aspect of surveillance planning.

This course has many benefits for learners, such as:

Enhance knowledge
Gain SIA recognised qualification (when valid)
Preparation for working in Investigations
Recognised qualifications
Business/Work preparation

This course has been designed to prepare participants for the oncoming licensing of the Private Investigations sector, this means that the course is suitable for those already working in the Investigations field and also those that are looking to break into this type of career.
