About Novel Data Investigative Learning INC.


how to become a private investigator in canad



To provide a clear path through meaningful education for aspiring Investigators to obtain gainful employment as they start their careers, and for Investigators who have less than 2000 hours of field experience.


To provide meaningful professional investigative e-Learning and in-class educational environments where participants learn while acquiring practical and tangible skills. This will lead to ongoing professional development and career advancement.   

This highly specialized profession can be the ultimate catch-22 situation.

In the case of people interested in pursuing a career as a Private Investigator, generally, you need experience to get hired and you need to get hired to gain experience.
Due to the highly specific nature of the work performed and conducted as an Investigator, Novel Data founders recognized that there were no educational options that were detailed and yet tangible for aspiring Private Investigators. There was a major educational gap for new and interested people wanting to pursue a career as a Private Investigator or even just individuals looking to expand their skills and knowledge in this field.

Students will gain needed skills, clarity, insights, and direction during their first few years. Students will understand what will be required or expected of them as they continue to learn and gain experience all while developing into a reputable sought-after after and established Investigator.
