Private Investigator Training Academy

Are you fascinated with the world of private investigation?

Would you like to further your interest and discover more about this intriguing profession?

Imagine having an exciting and challenging career that gives you the opportunity to help people by solving important cases.

Private investigators use skills of observation and detection to find information that will be useful to their clients. They carry out their work for individuals, companies and solicitors. They look for theft and fraud, do checks on staff for firms, and provide reports on their findings.

Does this career sound appealing to you? If so, we at City Investigations can help you.

You can either become a specialist and focus your expertise exclusively on areas such as criminal defence, product liability, insurance fraud, and accident reconstruction, or you can become a generalist and work cases ranging from marital/custody to skip-tracing to due diligence. The choice is yours.
