What I would highlight: I was much impressed and inspired by the Private Investigation program. I always received prompt and useful feedback from my tutor. The program was extraordinary and the assistance I received from International Career Institute was invaluable. I really enjoyed this course from start to finish and sad I have now completed. I have found the materials simple and the learning platform very good indeed. The course is without a doubt one of the best investments I have made in myself and now I am reaping the awards.
