Become a Private Investigator

17September, 2018


There has never been a more exciting time to become a Private Investigator. It offers the flexibility to set your own hours, allowing you to work in between other work commitments, the school run or simply part time because you choose to.

Partnering with our friends at Shield Operations Ltd, we can offer the BTEC Level 3 for Professional Investigators qualification, it is a distance learning course, studied at home, in your own time, via our online learner portal, with attendance only needed to sit your exam. This is a theory course covering the laws and legislation around surveillance and investigation.

The BTEC level 3 for Professional Investigators is needed for client compliance within the industry and also proposed upcoming SIA licensing.

Our delivery methods currently see us running with over a 98% pass rate, which is unrivalled in the industry.

We have all seen training providers, promising work to all its learners, this too is a fallacy. No training provider can offer full time employment to everyone that signs up for their training, the math just doesn’t work and not all applicants are successful or even suited to the industry. At Shield,  what we can legitimately state, that we continue to grow operationally each year, in terms of, client base, operational frequency, geographic coverage and subsequent operative requirement, and that we actively recruit, field operatives from our successful trainees.

Our private investigator training packages are designed specifically to furnish learners with industry recognised qualifications, but also, with an accurate picture of the industry. As such, we enable our learners to “hit the ground” immediately, with the qualifications, skill sets, attributes and equipment to be successful.

This great course is priced at £289.00 for distance learning, more information can be found at ( after that, feel free to come back to us with any questions you may have.
