Bodyguard and P.I. Training at Sexton Executive Security, Inc.

Training is definitely the theme at Sexton Executive Security over the next 5 weeks. We kick-off our training programs with our certified Private Investigator class from 9/20 – 9/26.

We often receive employment requests from people looking to work as private investigators. Who could blame them – the work is both exciting and rewarding at the same time. Where else could you legally follow someone around all day/night as they drove, shopped, ate, danced, etc., AND get well paid for it? The answer is; outside of Law Enforcement – nowhere.

Private Investigator training is a great background for future careers. In these tough economic times, many people are loooking for security and are seeking out public sector employment. If you do an online search and use phrases such as “investigator”, “inspector”, or “Inspector General”, you will see just how many positions are available with the Federal, State and local government.

Having private sector training from a certified training academy (SEXTON is certified by the Department of Criminal Justice Services)can not only qualify you for a current job opening, it can also translate into a higher pay grade and empower you with more responsibility and act as a “fast track’ for your career. One of our graduates from last year’s Las Vegas E.P. training class is a perfect example.

In some other States, you can work as an apprentice investigator until you get licensed, but in the Commmonwealth of Virginia, you must be a registered P.I. before you can conduct an investigation. This means that you must first attend training to become registered.

If you are serious about a career in the investigations field, then you should carefully consider where to attend training. Remember, not all schools are created equal and while some will go above and beyond to teach you everything you need for a solid foundation in the field, others will cut corners and concentrate on their profit from training you.

If you make your choice based on the fact that attending a particular school will save you a couple hundred dollars (we often hear this as a reason), then you are selling yourself short, way short. A couple hundred dollars is one day’s pay. Is your career (which could easily last 30 + years) not worth more than a day’s pay?

At SEXTON, our focus is on you, the student. Our mission statement is to provide a superior training experience, so that you are best prepared for the tasks ahead once you enter the field. As a way of demonstrating how important that is to us, we hire our own graduates to conduct investigations for our clients.

Is there any higher endorsement than to hire those you taught to provide services for your top clients? Even if you are not a resident of VA, you can still attend our highly acclaimed training (one graduate calls us; “The Harvard of P.I. schools!).

The Department of Criminal Justice Services (DCJS)is highly regarded throughout the U.S. and often seen as the premiere regulating body. Schools and courses certified by them are therefore widely accepted by employers and other authorities.
