Student Spotlight – Alexander Ford
Alexander Ford, a recent graduate of Florida Gulf Coast University, recently completed NITA’s Florida Investigator “CC” Intern Course (40 hours), an online course that provides the necessary training required in order to apply as an Investigator in Florida. He is NITA's most recent Student Spotlight.
Before his pursuit of licensure, Alex earned his Bachelor of Science in Criminal Justice at Florida Gulf Coast University, where he also played on the school’s hockey team. The FGCU program provided an extensive overview of the criminal justice system including law enforcement, corrections, the judiciary, juvenile justice, probation and parole, and international justice.
Though a degree isn’t required for NITA’s program, Alex’s previous experience further confirmed his desire to continue his professional pursuits. It was through a recommendation from a trusted advisor and a referral online that eventually led him to the National Investigative Training Academy, Inc. (NITA).
Alex believed NITA’s program would combine his interest in criminal justice with his desire to develop his dream of becoming a licensed Private Investigator. We had the opportunity to speak to Alex and his experience with NITA’s program.
“My favorite part about the course was the online nature of the curriculum,” Alex said. “I was able to easily navigate the content on both my cell phone as well as my desktop – sometimes both in the same day.”
The program exceeded his expectations, he said. Unlike other programs, NITA’s course curriculum is delivered entirely online, providing an added layer of convenience for students.
Alex says he hopes to use the program to fuel his career aspirations of becoming a federal investigator.
When asked what words of wisdom he would share to those just beginning their journey, Alex said, “Jump right in. I would definitely recommend NITA’s program to anyone who is seeking to progress in the field of private investigations.”
