The SFJ Level 3 Award for Professional Investigators is the mechanism by which private investigators confirm and demonstrate knowledge and professionalism. In the absence of licencing – “Self-Regulation” is the order of the day.
The Industry Qualification (IQ) Level 3 Award for Professional Investigators has been superseded by the SFJ Awards Level 3 Award For Professional Investigators : European Qualification Framework Level 4: Qualification Number: 600/3345/9
The SFJ Awards Level 3 Award For Professional Investigators and the Pearson Btec level 3 both fulfil the Security Industry Authority remit for SIA Private Investigator Licences. They are the competency criteria for potential Business Licencing / Sector Governance – No other qualification actually satisfies this remit – so make sure you are wary when selecting your training supplier / package.
