Certification Program

Certified Auto Theft Investigator 

An Overview

The International Association of Auto Theft Investigators (IAATI) has recognized a need for an accepted method and standard of evaluating the qualifications of individuals who are conducting Auto Theft Investigations. Investigators who testify in court as “Experts” have an equal need and interest in establishing their credentials.

Certification Program Objectives:

  • Recognize qualified Auto Theft Investigators
  • Serve as an International Registry for identifying qualified investigators
  • Promote excellence in training, education and conducting Auto Theft Investigations
  • Provide a system by which equally qualified investigators will have an immediate acceptance as “Experts.”

Who is Eligible:

Any active member of IAATI, who completes the application and scores a minimum of 100 points (see application for scoring standards). All applications are screened and information verified before a certificate is issued. Failure to maintain active IAATI membership will result in revocation of certification.
