Distance Learning for Private Investigator SIA Licencing

abiISS Training are offering this private investigator training as a member of the Association of British Investigators (ABI) Training Academy. This distance learning course is designed for those wishing to learn in their own time and for those with experience in the enforcement or investigative sector.

You may wish to just take the assessment for the Level 3 Award in Professional Investigation without completing the full six day course if you feel experienced as an investigator. Please note: you will be taken more seriously and be given more credit within the industry if you have undergone full training rather than just the distance learning course withno previous experience.

You will be provided with full comprehensive learning notes, undergo two mock exams and then will be required to attend for a day to sit the two multi-choice assessment papers (after a period of classroom based revision). You will also be required to produce a surveillance recce report and briefing notes for assessment purposes. The course is accredited by IQ.

Licencing for PI’s is still ‘work in progress’ but the government has stated that when licencing is introduced, The SIA minimum  requirements to obtain a licence are:-

  • Prove identity
  • Have a clean criminal record
  • Have a Level 3 Award in Professional Investigation

Any previous qualifications that are security or investigative related will not be accepted by the SIA (even if you have had a full career in Criminal Investigations). The SIA has stated that all applicants must have the Level 3 Professional Investigation Award. However, if you are competent and experienced, you will be permitted to just sit the assesment test after providing evidence of such work.

The Assessment Day

Commencing at 9am in a classroom environment, all attendees will be required to prove identity by two means such as a passport and driving licence. Periods of revision on each main subject matter will be conducted, followed by  written assessment tests taken late afternoon.
