Our testimonials

What our students say

I would like to extend my appreciation to CSPI for allowing me to attend this school and for helping me with my job search.... The school prepared me well for my new career in the Private Investigation field. I have already begun telling friends about CSPI.... Thanks so much, CSPI!!! for a brighter and more challenging future.


I would like to take this opportunity to thank all the instructors and the Administration Department at the Canadian School of Private Investigation and Security Ltd. for all the knowledge that I've received while in school. The education was top-notch. I know I'll carry this knowledge with me wherever I go. Through the Job Placement Department I have been successfully placed with a very prestigious company working as a Private Investigator. I know that I wouldn't have gotten this job without the diligent effort of the Administration Staff, who went "above and beyond" to help with my search....Thank you!


The use of force class provided me with an excellent introduction into self-defence tactics as well as practical experience implementing them in various situations.


Everything was perfect.


The course was complex and touched on many issues I did not expect. It was definitely a good method of learning... Happy to have come to CSPIS for the course. I feel confident that the information I attained here will be useful and beneficial for me in the future


I myself would find it hard to say I didn’t enjoy this class. It has been a great experience learning from the “Master” when it comes to security... its hard to describe this experience and I would recommend him to anyone who wants to get into security or law enforcement.
