  • ASAA has trained over 5,000 students since State approved since training became required in 1998.

Which Course is Required for What I Do?

The below list of accepted courses is a summation of A.C.A. 17-40-101 through 350 as well as the Rules and Regulations of the Arkansas Board of Private Investigators and Private Security Agencies. It is not intended to replace either of those documents. Each person that looks at our list should also consult the original text for accuracy.

Satisfied Customers

The class was very informative and all you guys treated me great, I will recommend the class to other AHJ’S. And you are also correct in your opinion of Mike D one of the main reasons I was in the class  was the respect I have for Mike and when he said it was a good class I knew I needed to attend.

Thanks again
