Four Ways To Get a Head Start in the Job Market with DTI

1. Be prepared with the best training available. Unlike other schools, DTI bridges the gap between academic training and practical, real-life learning assignments.

For example, with DTI, and only with DTI, you’ll do the following:
  • The latest surveillance techniques and technologies used by top professionals today. You’ll conduct actual field assignments in surveillance and then receive critiques from our qualified instructors on how well you performed. As a result, when you interview for a job, you will be able to speak from real experience using the latest techniques and technologies such as:

    How to access special PI databases to anticipate a subject’s movements

    How to use a satellite “street” view with a map overlay of a subject’s address to determine how many entrances, exits, or dead-end alleys there are in a neighborhood

    How to determine if a subject lives on a corner, what the traffic flow patterns are, and what is the best surveillance position to avoid detection—before leaving your office or arriving at the subject’s location

    How to use the latest technology and skills, which will better prepare you for job interviews and increase your prospects of getting hired. Employers prefer DTI graduates because they are better trained and make more competent employees. This reduces the employer’s on-the-job training costs. In addition, DTI graduates are more capable of advancing to more responsible positions within investigative firms.

2. Take advantage of our reputation, built over 24 years, to make a difference in your career. DTI's curriculum was developed by seasoned instructors and private investigators with over 30 years of experience.
