$379.00 Principles of Private Investigations Course The S2 Principles of Private Investigations Course is designed to prepare students for employment in the field of private investigations. In this 32-hour distance learning course, students are provided with a detailed examination of investigative subjects including ethics, investigations law, background investigations, public and private records searches, interviewing techniques, report writing, surveillance, locating people, trial preparation, and more. This course is recommended for new private investigations students located outside of Florida in addition to licensed private investigators seeking to improve their existing knowledge and skills. This course includes many of the same lessons as the Florida Private Investigator Intern Program, but narrows the focus of subjects to private investigations only and excludes lessons that largely focus on Florida Law. As an S2 professional development program, students enrolling in the Principles of Private Investigations Course do not have to apply as Career Education Program students. Students that seek licensure as Private Investigator Interns in the State of Florida should enroll in the Florida Private Investigator Intern Program. We strongly recommend that students located in states other than Florida should consult their state laws for any unique training and licensing requirements before enrolling in this course.
$169.00 Legal Aspects of Private Investigations For most new and experienced private investigators, critical mistakes are rarely the result of poor investigative skills and techniques.

$79.00 Principles of Undercover Work Few assignments in criminal and private investigations are as dangerous and challenging as undercover work.
