I just finished reading and studying your investigator's course and being and investigator for over 20 years, the course was a big eye opener and a lot of information obtained that I did  not know of. For every new investigator this course is a must ! ! !

I very much appreciate your course, and have recommended it to one of my students already. You could well be setting a standard that will become the measure of PI education in the next decade. Incidentally, being as you are educating PIs and PI aspirants online, perhaps you could be interested in using your website and program to offer actual field experience to aspirants (and perhaps start-up PIs) through someone like me? Being on the faculty of two universities, and therefore having valuable educational experience and credentials, there could well be a market for many wanting to get into the PI field, and who would want to actually work with a PI (doing appropriate levels of research, field work, case preparation, expert witness location, etc.) and actually pay for the experience. I have some fresh ideas that I am preparing now about how that will work. Perhaps you would like to chat about it.

Sincerely, Clarence

Dear Mr. Hoover,

My admiration of your skills continues. The links you provided are simply miraculous. I am reading a section of your book each day and printing it out as I read. Then a hole-punch and a vinyl binder gives me the "book" form that I need to carry around with me. I printed your links, too, as sort of a supplement. It's the greatest, and the notebook gives me an opportunity to review when I have a free moment.

The DVDs arrived yesterday, but I have not had an opportunity to watch them yet. If they are half as good as the printed material, you have a winner. Again, thanks so much for the course. I'll keep you posted on the results I find with the links.

Debbie Brown.

Dear Mr. Hoover,

Just wanted to let you know how impressed I was with the work you did for me. I have been reading your web site and am very interested in learning more about investigative work. Can you explain how you go about finding information or is this some kind of trade secret? Can you tell me more about the investigative course that your web site mentions?

Best and most comprehensive private investigation course I've encountered. The design is exceptional and most worthy of praise. I thought the copy was straightforward and clearly stated. Whoever authored the copy is right on the money. This is an honest impression and I'm not blowing smoke. Excellent by any standard. You may quote me and use my name.
