Although Indiana does not require continuing education credits to maintain your investigator license, keeping current is a must for every professional.

IAPI has partnered with the following organizations to offer discounted training. Many of these courses are approved for continuing education credits for designations that you already have.

If you are not a member of IAPI, you may still enroll in the classes. However, these classes do not fulfill the requirements needed for an Indiana private investigator license. For details on attaining professional licensing, please visit the Indiana Professional Licensing website.
