Non-Texas Surveillance Training Course
This is the same course as the Texas course only the Texas specific sections on Laws, Regulations, Employer/Employee Relations, and Ethics have been removed. This course would be for Non-Texas residents or for those in Texas who are only interested in the Surveillance portions of the course.
This class was created for those who wish to break into the Private Investigation field, but have no Surveillance experience. Without a basic foundation in Surveillance, it can seem impossible to get hired as a new Private Investigator, since most new investigators do mainly Surveillance.
Once you have a good foundation and basic skills, you stand a much better chance of getting hired on with Investigative Agencies.
These basic Surveillance skills should apply anywhere. Any laws, rules, or regulations cited in this course are made with Texas in mind. You should contact your own licensing agency in your state to make sure you are operating legally.
The new format consists of:
280+ Training Slides
7.5+ Hours of Audio Narration
Over 30 Static/Mobile Surveillance Video Clips
PDF Copy of the Course Slides (no audio/video)
PDF Helpful Documents
Certificate of Completion
30 Days to Complete
Complete the course at your own rate. 30 minutes or 30 days, it's up to you. You can advance the slides when you are comfortable you've learned the material.
