Interested in Training to be a professional Private Investigator?

Well look no further! Titan Private Investigations offers an array of professional Private Investigator training courses delivered from our Derby based training facility.

These courses are;

The most popular course by far is Titan’s 5 day RQF Level 4 surveillance training course written specifically for newcomers to the industry and will equip students with everything they need to know to succeed in this exciting industry. We deliver the 10 day advanced course syllabus bar the night surveillance module in 5 days. Our learners will receive the intermediate qualification due to the total qualification time set by the awarding body to achieve the advanced qualification. We believe our learners require an advanced syllabus as the intermediate has so much important information and tactics missing which are basic requirements. To mention a couple; Stop & Plot, Public Transport.

Once our learners have reached the required standard and successfully completed the surveillance course, we enrol our graduates on the Titan GROW Student Aftercare Programme where we further develop them. Unlike the majority of training providers within the UK, we are a busy operational surveillance provider, so you have the work to further develop yourself while you earn. We don’t promise work, but the work is there for you to take should you wish to.

At the point of writing this, over the last 7 days, Titan had 27 operational deployments, an average of almost four per day.

Why choose Titan over other surveillance training providers?

Titan’s courses are designed and delivered by former government surveillance operatives. The 4 instructors have 85 years of combined operational experience working on some of the most sensitive operations and against targets who pose a direct threat to National Security. When you enquire about professional Private Investigator training or surveillance courses, ask the training provider what surveillance background they have. Have they received government training and worked at the highest level in this capacity or are they self-taught and written a book?

Titan is more than happy to put you in contact with former students so that you can hear about their experiences of becoming established within the industry. Alternatively, some of our students have left video testimonials which can be viewed below.

Private Investigator Training Course Feedback

Titan’s courses are easily accessible by road, rail and air, making Titan a superb choice of training provider within the Midlands.
Titan’s Training Centre is conveniently located within easy reach of the M1 motorway, only six miles from Derby Train Station – where students can travel 90 minutes direct from Central London – and within a 30-minute drive of East Midlands Airport.

Chosen for its metropolitan ambience and varied infrastructure, Titan’s foot training is predominantly based in Derby and Nottingham City Centre, which boasts a full quota of public services and transportation, making it the ideal location in which to learn/ practice foot surveillance.

Derbyshire County is again the ideal backdrop in which to practice mobile surveillance as it provides versatility through easy access to rural areas, airports, and motorway networks. Training designed/ based around complex environments such as these will provide students with the knowledge and adaptability to be able to operate in most city, urban and rural settings.
