prestigious [British] Institute of Professional Investigators
is unlike most investigative organizations in that it's
membership is comprised of career investigators from both the
public and private sectors.
While the bulk of the members are English and Scots, a lesser
number are based throughout Europe and there are a few members
in North America.
Investigative training is offered by the I.P.I. at meetings
and AGMs. Certification is obtained by thesis and there
are two levels, "Member" and "Fellow".
Concepts, Ltd. has
one MIPI on staff.
