This course is the first step in this process. This program has been designed by the State for those who intend to become a licensed Private Investigator in the State of Florida. Upon successful completion of this 40-hour course, students receive State required certification. In order to apply for the Intern license, you must first obtain a contract with a Licensed Class C Private Investigator who will be your mentor for the length of your internship. This contract is part of your application for your Class CC PI Intern License. Upon successful completion of your Internship, with the recommendation from your mentor, you can then apply to take the State test for your Class C Private Investigator License. The Internship is a 2 year obligation, however, your Paralegal courses may reduce the internship to just 1 year.

Sponsor Information:
Course completion prepares students to be accepted by a sponsor.  It is the student's responsibility to locate a sponsor for the internship which follows completion of this course.  HCC does not provide placement with sponsors. Students should begin this process as soon as possible.
