Criminal Investigators Academy

 




 

 

 

 

 

 

BlueLine Training Group, LLC. is proud to offer the Criminal Investigators Academy (CIA) certificate. The Criminal Investigators Academy is designed to recognize law enforcement personnel for obtaining advanced training in the area of criminal investigations and the development of critical investigative skills. Once the student completes the program he/she will be awarded the program certificate.

Unlike other certificate programs we do not require you to take mandatory courses from us, you must assess where you are currently at in your career.  It is inappropriate for you to waste your time and your agency money taking an introductory investigative course if you have been doing the job for several years already.  However, if you are just beginning your investigative career it is highly recommended you take Fundamentals of the Investigative Process, Crime Scene Processing, Death and Homicide Investigation as well as Interview and Interrogation.

We do require you to complete 350 hours of investigative oriented training in order to obtain your certificate. 

CIA Requirements

  • Students may apply for credit acceptance of equivalent courses completed successfully through another training organization or academy with the following stipulations:
    • Documentation for all courses for which a student is applying for credit should be submitted at time of application.
    • The student will be required to provide a transcript, certificate or other official record documenting the course title, hours, date, time and place of the training.
