Here is what Brandon had to say:
Thanks, Brandon, for meeting us today. What sparked your interest in the field of private investigations?
“Private Investigations is a diverse field that spans across a variety of sectors. I have several friends in law enforcement and another who currently serves as a U.S. Marshal. I wanted to take a different approach on helping others and have always been interested in the investigative side of things.”
What is it about the field of private investigations that excites you most?
“Technology has advanced exponentially, now allowing the opportunity for certain investigative techniques that were not possible only a few decades ago. Polygraph testing, for example, now includes advanced speech recognition in order to detect whether or not someone is telling the truth. It’s this and other rapidly advancing technology that makes the future of private investigations so exciting.”
Why did you choose NITA?
“It was important for me to find an online program that allowed me to balance my existing career, while also allowing me to focus on my most important role as a husband and father of two young children. I researched many online academies, but felt most comfortable with NITA after first inquiring about the school’s online courses over the phone. Sandra, NITA’s Vice President, guided me through my options and answered all of my questions promptly.”
What did you think about your experience with NITA’s online courses?
“The format of NITA’s online CC Intern Private Investigator program was perfect from start to finish. It was very user-friendly and detailed, providing an abundance of useful information to gain my certification. NITA has been a great overall experience for my training and I would definitely recommend their courses to anyone who is looking to start or continue their investigative career.”
