To become a licensed Private Investigator in New South Wales does not require investigative experience or a Private Investigator course/ Private Investigator training. The NSW state will issue you a New South Wales Private Investigator's license if you meet the basic Private Investigator requirements and have a PI sponsor/ employer. This license is called Probationary Operator. When you get your New South Wales PO license, you'll need to know how to perform investigations fit for Private Investigations, such as surveillance. After learning how to perform investigations, you can simply work as a Private Investigator in New South Wales. To become a Private Investigator in NSW that can perform, it is recommended that you first learn how to work investigations relevant to the PI industry, such as surveillance for insurance fraud files. The fact that New South Wales does not have experience or education requirements does not mean that the quality of investigations is less in New South Wales than in other states. In fact, due to poor state industry standards, having a PI license in general does not make you a qualified Investigator regardless of experience or education requirements. The poor industry standard come from the non-relevant experience most, if not all, states require of you to become a licensed Private Investigator. This non-relevant experience can be education degrees and non-PI investigative experience.
