GLOBAL SCHOOL OF INVESTIGATION was established in 1973 by noted private investigator Ed Ciriello (1934-2012), who developed the curriculum, working with a team of talented, experienced experts. The course is the most concise, completely updated (as of 1/1/14), and accurate PI training program available anywhere in the world. As one former student, now working as a Private Investigator put it:

"The GLOBAL program prepared me extremely well for the challenges I face in my new career. I love my job, I’m confident in my abilities and education, and I know that Global’s training is better than anything else out there. It was really exciting to learn tricks of the trade in a course with so much experience behind it."
