Fed up of losing your subject?

During the certificate III investigative services qualification, budding investigators only spend two, or maybe three days, receiving surveillance training; and depending on the training provider, you may have never have even gone outside of the classroom!
This course provides 6 days of intensive surveillance training, consisting of an initial classroom based theory day, and then followed by five days of practical training and feedback in the field. You will learn search techniques that allow you to regain your subject after a loss.

Getting compromised too often?

It’s down to you to get the work done and prove yourself to the client. You are only as good as your last job, and if you don’t have the surveillance expertise needed for success, you will probably blow any chances of getting more work from that client.
This course will teach you the correct technique of surveillance, and help you build a deeper understanding of the art of surveillance that will improve the quality of your work. You will learn to blend into the environment and techniques to avoid being noticed and remembered.

Missing opportunities to get the money shot?

If you are one of the fortunate ones, you may have been mentored by an another investigator, or may have learnt as you went along, which imposes a high risk of picking up bad habits and taking dangerous short cuts.
This course will give you the tools and knowledge needed to deal with surveillance challenges and allow you to try out different techniques in a safe environment. You will learn how to effectively conduct surveillance in close control of your subject and get amazing footage in various circumstances.
