Private Investigator


Police officers, State and Federal Investigators or anyone desiring to become a Private Detective may have had no or very little training and experience in Torts, Insurance Law or Criminal Defense and it has been, for them as Private Detectives, a trial and error learning experience until now.

The Bureau of Private Investigation, dba The Investigators LLC, is the first major agency offering Private Detectives and Investigators training via online state-of-the-art technology, preparing students to be on the cutting edge of 21st century law theory and practice. For those who endeavor to become a Private Investigator, this training is essential. 

Instruction is both highly theoretical and highly practical, emphasizing a critical understanding of how law functions in society and a practical knowledge of how lawyers function within the legal system ultimately giving the Investigator the edge from the perspective of a lawyer.  Knowing what and how a Defense Lawyer thinks, wants, needs and expects in a defense investigation provides for a better working relationship and ultimately an increase in case load and assignments. Learning by trial and error is the major cause of losing repeat clients and the difficulty in obtaining new ones. Don't let this happen to you.

The Investigators LLC offers home study courses to improve the perspicacity and legal ken of a private investigator. Though most states do not require education above High School for a Private Investigator's License, self edification is mandatory for business success.  As today's economic and competitive pressures place tighter constraints on business, professionals with specific training in the Substantive Law can provide greater value when budgets are tight.

If you are not a Private Investigator and you need the experience for a license, then you need the training to acquire the job for the experience.  This training will enhance your qualifications for an Operative position, as an applicant, for a Private Investigator. This training is coveted by Private Investigation agencies and your resume will reach the top of the hundreds of applications applying for such experience each month.

The Investigators LLC invests considerable resources and delivers high quality training in the most expedient way possible for working adults.  The information-intensive format gives the investigator a thorough understanding of an attorney's role in the judicial system that will enable the investigator to absorb and apply investigative techniques acceptable in a court of law.

The Investigators LLC offers Certificates of Completion for each subject passed successfully.

Invest in your business by acquiring knowledge in the substantive law you intend to investigate. Your business success depends on your knowledge, training and experience. Offer your clients the best. Get the edge over your competitors.
