These courses are required by the State of Illinois, Illinois Department of Professional Regulation to begin work as a private detective employee.
Why Fidelity Academy?
There are many online Private Detective Courses, Home Study Private Detective Courses, and even some Colleges are offering courses in Private Investigation. So what makes Fidelity Academy a better choice?
There are some things you need to know;
1. The State of Illinois requires certified training in a state-approved course of study by a Licensed Private Detective or Private Detective Agency, before you can work in private investigations in Illinois.
2. The State of Illinois does not accept online courses or home study courses as meeting the state-mandated training requirements in Private Investigations.
3. A college diploma or degree is NOT a substitute for the state-mandated training. Even if you spend thousands of dollars in a career college in their private investigations course, you will still need to complete a State of Illinois approved 20 Hour Private Detective Employee Course.
4. You do NOT need to spend thousands of dollars on a course in Private Investigations from a career college or online college program, to start working in private investigations in Illinois - you DO need to complete a 20 Hour Private Detective Employee Course and get your PERC Card. We can help you do both!
