14b NCAC 16 .1101          DEFINITIONS

In addition to the definitions set forth in Chapter 74C of

the General Statutes of North Carolina, the following definitions will apply to

this Section:

(1)           "Private Investigator Associate" refers

to individuals training to become Private Investigators.  A Private

Investigator Associate must complete three levels of training requirements.

(2)           "One-on-one Supervision" means person to

person contact whereby the licensed investigator is personally and directly

supervising or training the Associate.  The training investigator must be the

sponsoring licensed Private Investigator or any licensed Private Investigator

who is a member of the sponsoring Private Investigator's firm, association, or

corporation.  The Private Investigator Associate may not subcontract his

employment to another Private Investigator.  However, the sponsoring Private

Investigator may subcontract the Private Investigator Associate if the sponsor

obtains prior approval from the Administrator by showing that the Private

Investigator Associate will receive an educational benefit from the subcontract

employment and the Associate will receive one-on-one supervision from another

licensed Private Investigator.  One-on-one supervision may be satisfied if the

Associate undergoes training from an individual or educational course approved

by the Administrator prior to the Associate receiving the training.

(3)           "Training Checklist" refers to the document(s)

which must indicate all areas of training and work that the Associate has

performed.  The supervising Private Investigator must be responsible for

maintaining the training checklist and a copy must be given to the Associate. 

The Training Checklist must further be updated to reflect the date the

associate advances from one level to another.  The training checklist must be

signed by the Associate and the sponsoring Private Investigator at the end of

each reporting period.  In the event the Associate transfers employment to

another Private Investigator, the Associate must provide the new supervising

Private Investigator with the training checklist and the new sponsoring Private

Investigator will then be responsible for the maintenance of the checklist. 

The Training Checklist must be updated on a quarterly basis for Level One

associates and on a yearly basis for Level Two and Level Three associates.  The

training checklist must be maintained pursuant to Rule .0108 of this Chapter. 

When an associate completes Level Three, the Training Checklist must be made a

part of the associate's application for a Private Investigator's license.  The

Board shall have immediate access to the training checklist.

(4)           "Associate Log" refers to the document(s)

maintained by the sponsoring Private Investigator which must list each case the

Associate has worked, the number of hours spent on the case, and the type of

work performed.  One-on-one training must be specifically documented within the

Associate's log.
