Get Started


You are now at the beginning of the PI Pre-Assignment Training course. It covers the materials mandated by Washington law, rules, and regulations. The purpose is to assure the Department of Licensing you have been exposed to the mandated materials and have a basic understanding of those materials.

You have 365 days from the date of purchase to complete the course. 

Scroll down this page and you will see links to each of the lessons. It is recommended you progress through the lessons in the order they are presented. There is a quiz at the bottom of each lesson. Take each quiz. Failure to do so may delay the signing of your Department of Licensing application by our certified trainer. If you open a second browser window you can take each quiz in an “open book” fashion.  You can monitor your scores by going to your grade book.

There are several things to watch for as you take this course.

  • Glossary – There is an extensive glossary of legal terms available. You can reach it by clicking on the Glossary tab in the menu at the top of each page. Also pay attention to the words and phrases in underlined orange text spread throughout the course. Move your mouse over the word and its definition will open in a small popup. Clicking on the word will take you to the glossary entry itself.
  • Tell me more – They are spread throughout the course to provide additional information and insight into that particular topic. Be sure to read each of them as the quiz at the end of the lesson may ask questions about the material they contain. Watch for the bold green “Tell me more” text.
  • Flashcards – These help increase your understanding and retention of the material which was just presented. When you see one read it, answer it in your mind, and then click on it. The card will turn over to show you the correct answer.

Once you have completed the course you must take the final exam. You must pass the final exam with a score of 80% or better but you can take it multiple times.

After you pass the final exam our certified trainer will sign off on your private investigator state application. He can be reached at 360-671-2455 or robin@4thcorner.com.

NOTE: This course is specific to the State of Washington. Do not purchase it unless you are seeking licensure as a private investigator in the State of Washington.
