About Us

Titan Private Investigation was founded by Managing Director Simon Henson, a former Police Detective Sergeant with 17 years of government investigation experience. The majority of Simon’s career in covert policing was spent managing surveillance operations investigating Serious Organised Crime and Counter Terrorism on a National basis.


Since its inception, Titan has grown steadily. In 2017, in response to growing industry demand for high-level surveillance operatives, the company began shifting its focus from being solely operations based on introducing a training arm.


Students will be able to choose from a range of packages from a basic surveillance course, designed for individuals who are new to the industry, to bite-sized short courses focused on continuing professional development (CPD). The CPD courses are aimed at operators who are already working within the sector and simply wish to either refresh or improve their knowledge or learn a new speciality to develop their skill base.


In direct response to the requirement for a cadre of locally based and tactically sound operators to meet our demand, all of our courses will be run within the Midlands area. Our instructors, who range from former government surveillance operatives (Police and Military) to seasoned industry professionals, bring a wealth of operational and industry experience. The courses have been devised to provide students with all the knowledge they will require to work at a high level within the private surveillance industry.

RFQ Certified Courses

Titan students will be awarded with RQF Level 4 in Covert Surveillance Operations qualification on successful course completion. RFQ certified qualifications are accredited through SFJ Awards.
