Private Investigators Association of Idaho Offers Certified Private Investigator Program

The Private Investigators Association of Idaho will offer its Certified Private Investigator program on April 15, 2015. See the below letter from the association for more details.

Letter from the Private Investigators Association of Idaho


The Private Investigators Association of Idaho has developed a certification program for private investigators. This certification is an avenue for private investigators in the State of Idaho and beyond to demonstrate knowledge, experience, and proficiency with regards to the private investigative industry. Applicants undergo a complete background investigation and must pass an exam consisting of 175 multiple-choice questions. Successful applicants will interview with the CPI Board via video or telephone conference for final determination. The PIAI-CPI Certification Board has worked with other agencies and associations in developing this program.

All individuals who become certified will be required to carry insurance and a bond. They will also have to be licensed in the city or state in which they operate, if licensing is required. In addition, 25 hours of continuing education will be required every two years. Qualifications, requirements and other information will be listed on our website.

If you should have any questions regarding the CPI certification program please contact the Private Investigators Association of Idaho at [email protected] . We would be happy to answer any questions regarding the certification process. The purpose for the CPI certification is for investigators to demonstrate a high-level of proficiency in their field. The CPI logo and designation are not intended as a substitute for any state or local licensing laws.



The PIAI wishes to thank those who have worked to develop this program through experience, advice, and suggestions. We have worked diligently at creating this program and we are very grateful for the support we have received. Idaho private investigators take cases from many different states. The Certified Private Investigator seal serves as a stamp of approval, exemplifying professionalism, knowledge and experience. It is our intention that this certification program establishes a level of confidence and increased trust for those who hire private investigators. We look forward to meeting you.
