A Customized Experience
In 2012, investigative industry veterans Steve Cassell and Sandra von Eschenbach recognized that Private Investigators and Security Professionals faced a significant challenge. Whether they were pursuing a first-time license, satisfying continuing education (CE) requirements, or pursuing professional development (PD) on their own, traditional training courses were held in a classroom setting and required attendees to take time off from their jobs or miss potential client opportunities. While most training programs held to this accepted way of doing things, Cassell and von Eschenbach recognized that an online platform could make the training process more accessible and convenient. Inspired by that simple yet powerful realization, the duo founded the online investigative training academy, NITA. NITA’s faculty and staff are committed to providing the best pre-licensing, CE, and PD curriculum and instruction in the industry.
