I took the Private Investigator course through Smith Investigation Agency. Before I signed up for the course, I had some questions. They were very responsive and answered everything I asked (without pressuring me to take the Course). The Course itself was well organized and very to the point. I was able to finish it in a few weeks. Once you've finished the course, they automatically set you up with the third party that does the testing. I finished on Wednesday and could have written the test the next day. They are very well organized and have great communication. I'd definitely recommend doing your Course through them!
