DENTON, Texas, April 17, 2012 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The PDI/University of North Texas Certificate Program in Professional Private Investigations was recently named the fifth highest ranked program on a list of the 25 top private investigation schools by PINow.com.
According to PINow.com's website, private investigator educational institutions were ranked on a number of criteria, including the type of program available, college accreditation, available program information, application requirements and license qualification.
"We're honored to be included as one of the top 25 Private Investigator Training programs," said Dr. Scott Belshaw, director of the PDI program.
