As stated in Florida Chapter 493, F.S., applicants for licensure as private investigators (Class "C" Licenses) that do not possess the required experience may apply for an intern license (Class "CC" License) if they have the sponsorship of a Class "C" License Holder and complete an approved training course focusing on general investigative techniques and Chapter 493, F.S.

The required training program for Florida private investigator interns is broken into two parts, Part 1 / "Course A" (24-hours) and Part 2 / "Course B" (16-hours). The 24-hour Part 1 program ("Course A") and the 16-hour Part 2 program ("Course B") along with both examinations must be completed prior to applying for the license. The applicant must submit documentation confirming that he/she has completed both courses and passed both exams (Florida form DACS-16062) with the application for licensure.

In order to address the training requirements for intern private investigators as specified in Florida Chapter 493 and 5N-1.140., the S2 Safety & Intelligence Institute offers career education training via our online distance learning system. The S2 Florida Private Investigator Intern Program is organized into two parts, Part 1 (24-hours) and Part 2 (16-hours), coinciding with "Course A" (24-hours) and "Course B" (16-hours) as defined in FAC 5N-1.140.

“The combination of the slide presentation and the instructor video gives a reasonable fascimile of a classroom environment. I find this far superior to the simple slide show type presentation. Most people are familiar with classroom instruction and that familiarity should provide a comfortable learning arena.”
