Will you be ready? The State of Illinois and Continental Testing have announced the date for the next Private Detective and Private Security Contractor licensing examinations: Saturday, September 13, 2014. The deadline to submit applications to take these examinations is Tuesday, July 29, 2014.
The most challenging aspect in obtaining private detective and private security contractor licenses in Illinois is passing the pre-licensing, subject matter examinations.
Many folks who have dreamed of becoming licensed security and investigation professionals have become frustrated after their plans had to be postponed because they failed the licensing test.
Imagine how you would feel if your dream has to be pushed back six months or more? You've got a top-notch business plan, have arranged financing, and networked with some potential clients. Now, because you failed the licensing exam, you have to wait another six months to take the test again. Not only that, but because you failed, your self-confidence has been "zinged."
Starting a new business is risky and stressful enough without worrying about passing a 75 question subject matter examination.
You know what you need to become a successful startup. Unfortunately, your company can’t get started until you pass the licensing examination.
The State of Illinois licensing examinations are very challenging for several reasons. First, the test content includes Illinois criminal and civil law, federal law, and IDFPR rules and regulations. Additionally, you will be tested on criminal investigations or security principles; depending on your license. And finally, on the 75 question exam, you can only get 5 questions wrong and still pass. That means you must get a 94% to pass the exam.
Don't underestimate these tests like I did. In 2011, I assumed my law enforcement background was all I needed to pass the 75 question test. I was wrong- I failed. I took the test content and test prep for granted. Consequently, after failing, I had to wait another six months to try again.
Plus, I had to alter my study methods to ensure I was ready for the test. In March 2012 I took the test again and passed - with a perfect score.
Now, I’m offering my prep kits so you don’t have to experience what I went through.
My kits include hundreds of test Q&As. The kits also include flash cards, terms and definitions cheat sheets, reading materials, tips and strategies, IDFPR rules and regs, and audio files.
