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.

Who Should Attend NLITE
NLITE is offered to all new licensees in California. You do not have to be a member of CALI to attend. A "new licensee" is anyone that has obtained a California PI license within 24 months prior to attending the training.
