With nearly 30 companies offering online private investigator training and online security guard training the big question is whom do you take your training with? We are here to show you a few things to help you decide what online private investigator course and online security guard course will work best for you.
Who is the company?
Is the company you are looking for a security guard or private investigative agency?
If you are looking to become a private investigator or security guard, it is best to take your training with someone who can guide you and train you even after the training course. You want a company who readily works in the industry you wish to join.
Review, Reviews, Reviews!
We cannot stress enough the importance of online reviews. There are many companies offering training and taking a moment to check online reviews can be crucial in understanding what the online training course is like and what a student success rate is with the course. One thing you should be cautious of is many companies leave themselves fake reviews so just take a moment to check the person who wrote the reviews to see if they have written any others or if they have a profile picture or any information showing. If they do not have an image, no information, and that is the only review, it is likely fake.
Experience how long has the company been offering online training?
Since the MCSCS made it mandatory to take a training course to become a private investigator and to become a security guard in Ontario, we have been offering the training. Our platform has been around the longest with only one or two other companies. The length of time a course has been around is very important as you may begin training with someone who just started to offer the courses and yet has no real information to train you in order to pass the exam. We want to see you pass the exams the first time and our students do.
Is the company offering the private investigator courses and security guard courses online known? Do they have a reputation within the industry? Have you done your research on them to determine if they are who they say they are and have the reputation they claim to have?
Once you complete your investigator training and security training, now what?
Once you complete the training you will be issued a certificate of completion, and once you write and pass the exam you apply for the licence with the MCSCS. You must be at least 18 years of age and have a clean criminal record in order to obtain a investigators licence and a security guard licence.
Private investigation jobs
There are approximately 2300 private investigators in the province of Ontario and approximately 750 companies in Ontario. Those numbers alone show you we have a shortage of private investigators in the industry. You can assume at least 10-20% of those investigators are no retired, working elsewhere or only worked part time to begin with. That leaves less than two people per company to offer investigative services. Despite what you may read online there are plenty of jobs for investigator in Toronto, Mississauga, Scarborough, Markham, Hamilton, Brampton, Barrie, St. Catharine’s, Niagara Falls, Windsor, London, Sudbury, and other cities throughout the province of Ontario.
