It's That Time Of Year Again. Go Back To School For Your Paranormal Investigator Certification.
Yup, believe it or not. There are schools out there, colleges even, that will teach you ghost hunting.
The only thing I'm a little confused about is do you really have to be certified? Not sure? Even to get a certification to be a Tech Specialist? Or, is this another way for schools to make money. But, that's a story for another day.
Some of these courses are online. And, what is the purpose behind this? I think a background check should be done first to anyone that is thinking of walking into a complete strangers homes is by far the most important thing you should do.
Being a Parapsychologist is a little different ball game. And, they have to be a total skeptic. They have to understand the psychology behind the investigation. What it means to the participants? Is the actual haunting real or created? It's an actual case study.
But, to get certified to investigate? Do you have to get re-certified every so often? Or, is it lifetime. And, that makes you question why have one. All the new equipment and different techniques change it seems every year.
