PI Fundamentals

Our Courses

"At StriderPI, you will learn by doing real casework, with real PI's, in real time." -                                     

                                  -Dave Amis, Lead Instructor


Surveillance 101

Surveillance may be the oldest PI technique dating back to Roman times. It's still relevant today as observation of subjects can solve case, identify co-conspirators, and gain valuable intelligence or evidence.  We will teach you both the theory and practices of surveillance, plus how to plan and write your report.



OSINT stands for "open-source intelligence" and is basically investigation by computer using a variety of data and social media sources.  Some investigators spend all of their time doing OSINT.


Criminal Investigations 103

This course will be offered later this year and only to those who have completed 101 and 102.  This is an introductory course to criminal investigations and will include a crime scene exercise as well as how to address being the first on scene of any crime.
