The Association of British Investigators is sector accredited by the Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency and is endorsed by the Law Society of England and Wales who recognise the A.B.I as the premier professional body for private investigators working in the UK and beyond: "A non-profit organisation, its national and international membership provides credibility and due diligence". The A.B.I is also an approved supplier to the Law Society of Scotland, who acknowledge: "Its national and international membership provides the only credible list of accredited operatives".

The Security Industry Authority explained that Business Licencing for the UK's Private Investigators was their preferred route back in 2013 (The "Second Tier of Licencing") and will, subject to review, require Private Investigators to obtain ACS (Approved Contractor Scheme), status.

The second tier of licencing or Business Licences for Private Investigators will be based on existing (Draft) British Standards and Association of British Investigator and other trade bodies mandatory qualification requirements to demonstrate professionalism, competence, probity and ethics.





My name is Gill Baines...


My name is Gill Baines aka student 00031. I have just completed the EDI level 3 training course and passed my exam, about which I am thrilled. When I first began researching into this field as a career path, I have to say it was a minefield. Many different websites were offering a variety of training material and, so called diplomas and certificates. I rang burton-regan initially as they seemed to be the ones who knew what they were talking about, and I'm now glad I did.
I found the training course extremely clear and concise, and, for me, easy to understand. The question and answer excercises I found particularly useful, as they helped me apply my focus to what I was learning whilst allowing me to revisit any knowledge I found difficult to retain. I also found the revision time just prior to the exam with kevin an enormous help to focus my mind.
I feel I have received enough assistance and support throughout this training to give me the confidence to now move forward with my business and, make a success of it with the continuing support, mentoring and training opportunities available to me.
Many thanks to Kevin and his team for all your advice and support.
