Titan releases its 2020 Private Investigator Training Courses
Investigator Training Courses 2020 Schedule - Titan Investigations is now offering an array of private investigator training courses based at our Nottingham City Centre Training Facility. By far the most popular private investigator training course is our 5 Day Surveillance Training Course written specifically for newcomers to the industry and will equip the students with everything they need to know to succeed in this exciting industry.
In 2017, in response to growing industry demand for high-level surveillance operatives, the company began shifting its focus from being solely operations based to introducing a training arm to the business. This is a non-profit making venture which enables us to meet operational demand. Our instructors are former Special Forces and Police Surveillance Instructors and together have devised a 5-day intensive course based as close as possible to the government National Surveillance Course. There are areas of the government course which are irrelevant in the private sector and have therefore been omitted to keep the course content relevant.
What are the dates of the 5 Day Surveillance Training Course in 2020?
- 10th-14th February 2020
- 4th-8th May 2020
- 14th-18th September 2020
- 7th-11th December 2020
How much can a surveillance operative earn?
This is completely dependent on your availability, flexibility and ability. On a self-employed basis acting as a subcontractor, if you’re willing to work hard there’s no reason why you can’t earn large sums of money. The average daily rate of pay is anything from £250 to £350 or an hourly rate of £25 per hour plus mileage.
How much is Private Investigator Training?
The course is an intensive five-day surveillance course where the instructors will extend the training day if required to ensure that you reach the required Titan standard. The instructor to student ratios is 1:3 offering close supervision throughout the course which costs £900 plus VAT (£1080). At the time of writing, this is the cheapest UK delivered investigator training course and in our opinion the best by far for value for money, instructor expertise and relevant content.
Why choose Titan over other private investigator training providers?
Titan’s Private Investigator Training Courses are designed and delivered by five former government surveillance operatives, with 131 years combined government operational experience working on some of the most sensitive operations and against targets who pose a direct threat to National Security.
In addition, all of our instructors also have countless years of experience in the commercial sector working within the top tier of the industry which brings the reality of the sector you wish to work within and will guarantee your success.
Titan, being primarily an operational company with an industry renowned reputation, also has the potential to offer employment opportunities to students who, having successfully completed one of our courses and demonstrate the correct attributes and ability.
Our GROW student aftercare is becoming renowned within the industry and as a result, has attracted a lot of attention from students who have completed courses with other training providers who were promised work which came to no avail.
So what is Titan GROW?
GROW is our student aftercare acronym which stands for:
GROUP - Students are added to Titan’s operational resourcing group where they will be allocated their first surveillance tasks.
RECOMMEND - Advised as regards equipment, setups, tactics and the law.
ONGOING SUPPORT - Students are allocated a mentor to instil success in the early stages of their career when you are judged the most.
