With the world of private investigations changing so rapidly with the advent of new technology, it’s important that licensed Private Investigators acquire the knowledge needed to stand apart from the crowd. Professional development courses can help position you for success. Rather than waiting for the perfect employer to come along, we suggest you consider utilizing professional development to build the skill sets you need to benefit your future organization.


Below are just five of the many benefits professional development can provide to you in your career. But first – we want to remind you that the National Investigative Training Academy, Inc. (NITA) is here to help you take charge of your life. Our staff is on call and standing by to address any questions you may have in regard to professional development or the field of private investigations.

1. Self-Awareness

Personal development begins with self-awareness. Are you where you need to be in your career. True fulfilment can never come from chasing other people’s dreams. If you want to achieve lasting happiness, you need to design your own professional destiny based on who you are today and where you would like to be in the future. Self-awareness is the first fundamental step in the personal development process.

 2. A Sense of Direction

A heightened sense of awareness can provide much clarity in the direction you choose to pursue. Professional development courses can make individuals more aware of the specializations they would like to pursue. As a result, decision making becomes a lot easier.

 3. Confidence and Credibility

No one likes to feel like they are missing important skills in their job. Professional development training provides opportunities to build confidence in your sense of self and the work you do. It also helps to build credibility, as future clients and employers will view it as a “value add.”

4. Improved Skills

“Iron sharpens iron.” There are always opportunities to grow in your career, so why not take the opportunity to learn from some of the best trained staff in the industry? As you continue to gain new skills and certificates, you will also be benefitting the clients you serve as well.

5.  Improved focus and effectiveness

With personal development comes clarity. Professional development courses can help build awareness in regards to your areas of strength as well as opportunities for improvement. Improved focus and effectiveness comes with knowing and playing to your strengths, which in turn leads to improved efficiencies across the board.
