Course Information

In this eight-month graduate certificate program, you will receive a combination of academic knowledge and hands-on training to pursue a dynamic career in public and private policing and investigations. With a focus on the development of advanced skills, you will be prepared for the challenges and rewards that come with investigations and law enforcement.

Seneca’s Advanced Investigation and Enforcement program uses hybrid and online strategies across our curriculum to deliver innovative and flexible learning focused on student needs, while also concentrating on the applied and professional skills needed for law enforcement and investigations (both public and private).

After successful completion of the first semester, you can apply for a training completion number. It will make you eligible to be tested, at your own expense, for the provincially regulated licence to be a private investigator. Additionally, by completing the Firearms Safety course, you will be eligible to apply for a Canadian Firearms License.
