About The Training
This course is a requirement in order for you to be able to sit your Alberta Provincial Examination For Professional Investigators, which is one of the first steps of obtaining your investigator license in Alberta.
We have created a course that can be taken online, and includes videos, quizzes, and a practice final exam. It can be completed on your computer, phone, or tablet at your own pace. This is a great option for those who are looking for self-directed independent study.
Our in-class course is a good option for those who are looking for a more structured learning environment who benefit learning in a group situation. Our classes are run over four two-day blocks on Saturday and Sunday twice a year.
We are also proud to be the only source for online and in-person courses being offered by licensed, working investigators in the province of Alberta. We have rigorously created a course that is relevant and informative, to give you the best opportunity to learn and achieve a passing mark on your government exam.
