The Newly Licensed Investigator Training & Education (NLITE) is an introductory course that is the foundation of CALI’s Professional Development Program. The course covers the basics that every new licensee needs to know to begin a career as a Private Investigator in the State of California.

NLITE provides an overview of the profession, the must-haves when starting and operating a business, the laws that new PI's must be familiar with, ethical issues, and professional responsibilities. Each attendee will leave with the practical knowledge and tools needed to be a successful Private Investigator and business owner.




The Certified Professional Investigator (CPI) credential distinguishes professionals who have proven their commitment to the private investigation and have demonstrated knowledge, experience, and skills essential in the private investigation profession.
