How To Become A Private Investigator In Fort Hancock, Texas

People interested in becoming a private investigator should check with their state’s licensing authority to find out what is required to work as an investigator in their state.  Are you interested?  If so, a number of online courses and training, like ours here at International Security Training, LLC… as well as college-level certification programs can help you gain the necessary skills to work as a private investigator. You can also contact your state’s private investigator association to find out how to become an investigator.

The main thing is to obtain the most affordable education at first.  Why?  Because most people initially interested in the field, end up losing interest after they learn everything (the realities) involved.  The movie and entertainment industry can be very misleading.

 

You can select a specialty if desired or you can offer multiple services. The most common investigative services include civil investigations and background checks. Exciting? No. Necessary for consistent profit? Yes!

I recommend you join your state private investigators association.  Be humble and quiet.  Your goal isn’t to impress the members or “hang out” with them.  Remember, they’re your competition!  Learn the universal fundamentals of public and private records research, basic backgrounds and skip tracing, and communications (i.e. report writing).  Study “the business” side of the industry.

How To Become A Bounty Hunter In Agoura, California

Bounty Hunting is official known as bail enforcement or fugitive recovery.  Some states allow it… others don’t.  States that don’t allow it will often have “bail runners” that are full time employees of the bond company… who perform the task.

1. So, research your state’s regulations!

The bail enforcement agent has to comply with any rules within his or her state, and these vary considerably. We cover these things in our online course, but to summarize – some states require licensing, specific coursework, and insurance.

2. Complete training or gain relevant experience in the field.

The bounty hunter must be trained in methods of returning the defendant, that skipped out on a court date. This can involve practical experience gained in law enforcement, military, classroom training in some facet of criminal justice, peace officer training, or working as a private investigator.

Remember, some states require training and others leave it to the individual. Fugitive Recovery can be a dangerous profession.  Adequate training, even if not legally required, is highly recommended for anyone considering this as a career.

How To Become A Bodyguard In Reynard, Texas

Bodyguards, officially known as “Executive Protection Agents”, are trained to perform the highest levels of security. They are trained in the areas of Advanced Weapons Disarming, Anti-Ambush Procedures, Anti-Terrorism, and even Criminal Psychology.  (The latter is used in Immediate Psychological assessment to determine whether an approaching person is going to be a threat or not, to a client.)  These professionals are trained to deal with, any and all, security situations.

The skillsets listed above are actually, secondary, of importance to a professional bodyguard.  The primary and most important skill sets are (1) Awareness, (2) Anticipation, and (3) Avoidance of any negative incident in relation to their client.

Anyone interested in becoming an Executive Protection Agent, should do two things:

(1) Obtain career specific knowledge & education. These courses cost an average of $300 – $500.

Step one normally filters out those people who didn’t realize that the career is actually more of a thinking persons game.  Gunplay, fighting, and action are just not the reality 95% of the time.

(2) After completing step one, if still interested in the career, obtain physical training specific to the career. These courses cost an average of $3,500 – $5,200.

Step two is generally more fun than step one… but step one is the most important.  Too many people who are great shooters and fighters, wash-out of the career because they don’t have or don’t use the soft skills obtained in step one.
