Our Program


Investigation Education Consultants, Inc. (IEC, Inc.) provides consulting services to educational institutions in the specific career areas of investigation and security. IEC designs collegiate level, turnkey educational courses and programs for colleges and career schools that plan to offer a Professional Investigation or security management certificate or degree, as a specific career path.

The principals of Investigation Educational Consultants, Inc. are experienced professional national trainers and educators specializing in custom designed collegiate level private investigation, security, personal safety and Homeland Security courses. These courses have been created to educate, train and prepare students to enter one of these chosen disciplines.

Programs are written for traditional quarter-system classroom environments but lend themselves easily to distance learning adaptation and/or intense weekend formats.

Four current program formats exist:

1. Nine core courses as a diploma or certificate program.
2. Ten
courses as a specialization.
3. Associate of Science degree program.
4. Bachelor of Science degree in Investigation Management

Student Services:

The Surveillance Kit: In order to complete the Surveillance course, students will need photography equipment. IEC, Inc. has created a specially designed “surveillance kit” containing the types of cameras and equipment needed by professional, experienced field investigators. The kit contains a Doskocil case, video camera, 35mm camera, long lens, binoculars and voice actuated tape recorder.

PISA and Interest Groups: Students will participate in their own investigation professional association. The Professional Investigator Student Association (PISA) is created to give students access to community private investigation leaders. Students will serve as officers and committee members of PISA. Further, students often want to focus their attention on one specific area of Investigation Services. IEC, Inc. has created “Interest Groups” which fulfill the curious need of the student for more in-depth exploration of the subject material. Groups are as follows: Surveillance Group, Computer Research Group, Crime Scene and Forensic Investigation Group, Executive Protection Group, Interviewing and Interrogating Group, Weapons and Firearms Group.

The Pin at Graduation: Upon completion of the program, graduates will experience the Investigation Services Pinning Ceremony, at which the graduate will receive a beautiful Professional Investigator lapel pin. Students are encouraged to wear their pins after graduation to investigation functions such as meetings, seminars and conferences. This will allow current graduates to recognize graduates from previous years and aid in the beneficial networking of graduates.

Alumni Association: Graduates maintain a close relationship with the College/Institute and fellow graduates. They participate in activities together that promote the profession. By maintaining a close communication with graduates, the College/Institute benefits from graduates who desire to continue their mainstream education or take professional continuing education courses.

Professional Association Membership: Students will join their local professional association under special membership classification (student or associate). Students will attend the association’s monthly meetings as well as annual educational conferences.
