You’ve probably heard the expression: “Education opens doors.” Online education classes, in particular, can prove especially beneficial for the everyday American trying to get ahead while still balancing family, work, and other responsibilities.
Whether you are unsure about the career path you are currently pursuing or you are looking to begin a life-long career for the first time, online education can lead you down the path toward your future. For those considering a career as a private investigator, the future looks bright.
How Does NITA's Training Beat Out Traditional Courses?
Here are 4 Ways NITA’s Online Courses Beat Traditional Investigative Training:
Studies have proven that online education beats the classroom, and one reason for this is the convenience factor. Say you already work nine to five and can’t beat the traffic to make it to campus for a class that begins at six p.m. This problem can be easily resolved through online education -- you can attend class virtually from any location with Internet access! Your investigative training courses are available to you anywhere at any time, which also decreases the risk of absences that could cause you to ultimately prolong your investigative training career.
The Department of Education recently conducted a study that found students enrolled in online courses outperformed those who chose classroom learning. The research further supported the hypotheses that online students were more productive and efficient with their time.
At NITA, we believe that teaching investigative theory is woefully inadequate without the context of proven, relevant, and real world investigative and business experience. Therefore, our online classroom training content has been developed, modeled and designed by senior NITA investigative faculty and staff. These individuals have forged wildly successful individual careers within the investigative industry and are determined to ensure your success in the program.
Online courses offer greater flexibility when compared to traditional classroom learning. Want to leave town early for Thanksgiving break to visit family? Not a problem when you have the flexibility of online school. NITA’s courses are offered exclusively online to facilitate learning on your own time and at your own pace.
Furthermore, NITA’s pre-licensing and continuing education courses are state approved, so you can be sure the training you receive meets or exceeds the training you would receive in a classroom environment. Assistance is always available and our capable staff is available for all students from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. EST on normal business days.
4) Improved Computer Proficiency
By taking a course online, a student will undoubtedly improve his or her computer skills. This skillset is particularly beneficial once he or she enters the field, because almost any career requires a certain level of computer proficiency. For Private Investigators specifically, logging information, conducting searches on persons of interest, and creating spreadsheets to track progress are all valuable tools that can be perfected by taking an online courses.
