To become a private investigator, there are no official qualifications or certified training schools that one must attend. What really counts and is often invaluable in this profession is hands-on experience. This experience is frequently gained from prior careers in fields like policing or the military, where the skill sets align closely with the demands of private investigations. For instance, at Somerset Private Investigations, our hiring emphasis is on individuals with ex-military and police backgrounds, as they bring a wealth of relevant knowledge and expertise to the table. This ensures our clients receive top-tier investigative services.
