We’ve written a brand new Surveillance course but Scott and I still haven’t come up with an outstanding title that works for what will be in depth and current course on everything a private investigator needs to know about surveillance. The problem is that there are many books written about surveillance and we want our title to really stand out then let the course content do the rest. The course outline can be found below.
Which leads me to announce our first contest!
We will award a $200 IRBstore.com gift certificate (http://IRBstore.com) to the investigator who submits what we feel is the best title for our new online Surveillance course. We will also choose a runner-up winner and award him or her a free PIeducation.com course, an $89.95 value.
You can post your suggested titles in the comments section below or email them to me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Be sure to leave your contact information too. Entries must be submitted to us before 5:00pm (CST) on Wednesday, January, 27 2010 in order to be eligible. On Thursday, January 28, 2009, we will announce the winner here on Pursuit Magazine and notify the winners by email.
If we end up using the winning title for the course, we will acknowledge the winner in the courses’ “acknowledgments and bibliography” section too.
Enter as many suggestions as you want but please do use Google to check whether the title is sufficiently original. Remember, all entries must be submitted to us before 5:00pm (CST) on Wednesday, January, 27 2010.
Have fun, thank you and good luck!
