About NITA

The National Investigative Training Academy, Inc. (NITA) was established in February of 2012, and over the last seven years, NITA has become a premier provider of State and Board approved online training for Private Investigators and security professionals.

NITA was co-founded by Steve Cassell and Sandra von Eschenbach to teach the necessary curriculum and training required to become a licensed Private Investigator. Additionally, NITA provides a progressive curriculum for those in need of continuing education and professional development. Both Cassell and von Eschenbach each have more than 20 years of experience within the investigative industry and have combined their successful investigative careers and business endeavors to best educate the next generation of outstanding Investigators.

Our Mission

At NITA, our mission is simple. We strive to:

  1. Provide a rewarding, flexible, and enjoyable online learning experience
  2. Teach the required state and board approved curriculum
  3. Develop the skills and leadership needed for a rewarding and investigative career

Our goal is to obtain 100% student satisfaction as we provide students with an enjoyable and rewarding online experience with modern-day technology. Our students love the opportunity to study in a flexible learning environment while maintaining a work and personal life balance. At NITA, we want our students to experience a fulfilling learning environment and have the flexibility of studying on their own time and on their own schedule. Students can learn from any device, from any location, and at any time. NITA always has open enrollment with access to the curriculum 24/7.

NITA’s progressive curriculum is State and Board approved, and we offer the pre-licensing training that is required in FL (40 hours) and GA (70 hours). Our continuing education is state-approved in the 15 states that require CE’s, and we offer professional development courses for those entering the industry as well as progressive training for licensed Private Investigators. In 2018, NITA introduced a new line of professional development security training that has been written by former military professionals and covers relevant real-world topics.

We recognize the benefits of online learning and hope to offer our students an affordable and flexible learning experience. Online learning can be less expensive than the traditional classroom without the expense of fees, travel, or extra books and supplies.
