How to Become a Private Investigator in Montana

To become a Private Investigator in Montana is different from most other places. The difference is that Montana does not require much for you to work as a PI for a Private Investigator agency. A Private Investigator course or Private Investigator training is not even needed. You simply need to be employed/ registered under a licensed Montana PI agency as an apprentice. You will get a license for this: Private Investigator Trainee. You need a PI sponsor/ employer to get this license. However, you won’t have a Montana Private Investigator's license but you can work as one. This can be viewed as you being a Private Investigator under supervision. A full Montana PI license allows you to work for yourself (your own business). This requires you to have previous investigative experience (3 years/ 5400hrs). Other than investigative experience, to become a Private Investigator in Montana, you need to meet basic Private Investigator requirements such as age, language proficiency, and other usual PI requirements of this nature. Furthermore, you will need to take a government PI licensing test (most other places you do). In Montana, the government body that controls licensed Private Investigators is the MONTANA BOARD OF PRIVATE SECURITY. Once you submit the proof of your ability to meet the requirements and experience to The Board, you will get your Montana PI license. Most jurisdictions will have a PI beginner’s license. In Montana, this license is the Private Investigator Trainee license. Getting this beginner's license is when your struggle will begin.
