Back to Info Page

"I've been a paranormal investigator for about 6 years, and up until now have been hesitant, even skeptical about the idea of certification courses.  I must say that this course was a very useful and enlightening addition to my personal experience as an investigator, and I recommend it to anyone that might be considering a paranormal certification course.” --Joey Ward, CPI, Founder of West Georgia Paranormal Research Society, Woodbury, GA

"Serious researchers of the Paranormal need serious skills and relevant tools to both understand and deal with the many types of phenomena that exist outside the normal range of human experience. The SPIRITeam Paranormal Investigator Certification Course provides all the skills and tools necessary to do just that, but it goes so far beyond the basic elementary education you usually get in these types of Courses. I know because I have taken many of them myself. Unlike many of the other so-called Certification Courses out there, the SPIRITeam Paranormal Investigator Certification course fully integrates both the scientific and spiritual side of research and how they relate to one another as well as the field of Paranormal Studies.

"Of particular interest to serious Investigators is the great deal of attention given to the “human” side of things and the nature of personal conviction concerning Paranormal Investigation. The greatest power of all is the power of belief. This course explains in no uncertain terms that Paranormal research is a continuously evolving field, where the never-ending search for truth and knowledge is what is most important. The Course is educational and encompasses everything a person needs to know to begin serious research, from theory and concepts to tools and equipment. Both beginner and advanced students will gain a lot from this text. There is no fluff here. Only well-documented, real-world, information, no holds barred.

"The book itself is fully supported with proper citations so students can conduct further research if interested, web-based tutorials and an Online Resource Library, and the SPIRITeam International Forum where students can chat, mix-and-mingle, and participate in a lively Forum on a variety of Paranormal subjects. The SPIRITeam is exactly that; a TEAM, where Together, Everyone Achieves More! The SPIRITeam Paranormal Investigator Certification Course will give you the confidence to go out there and begin your own adventure into the search for truth. Perhaps it will open your eyes and give you a larger world view. I know it has done that for me.

"This most certainly isn’t your typical “Ghost Hunting” manual. In fact, if that’s what you’re looking for, you should really go elsewhere. Here you will find a Course packed full of useful information for intelligent, truth-seeking people. The skills you gain as a result of taking the Course have greater implications than first meets the eye. This is a real-world guidebook into the exciting world of Paranormal Investigating. As an educated professional, I highly recommend this Certification Course. I know that you will enjoy it and learn much as you work through the lessons, so you can be proud once you take the final exam and pass. You will know without a doubt that you are truly a Paranormal Investigator and have the skills, tools, and education to help others understand the nature of that which is unknown to most.

"This comprehensive Study Program is, in my opinion, the best on the market, hands down! Once you join the SPIRITeam you will see that for yourself. I got so much more than I expected at the low price I paid. The amount of useful information went way beyond any of the previous courses I’ve taken and gave me a deeper level of understanding of what a true Paranormal Investigator does. I’m sure you will be satisfied with the content, the depth of knowledge you gain, and the readability of the manual. You really don’t need to look any further than the SPIRITeam Paranormal Investigation Certification Course to meet all your needs. I back that up with my word of honor." --Matt Reynolds, CPI, New York

"I have spent an unbelievable amount of money on books relating to ghosts, orbs, you name it. If it dealt with the paranormal, I had it. Your course is amazing in the fact that it covers every detail. When I read the chapter on photography, I was furious due to the fact I took a class on photography and spent hundreds of dollars on it, only to find I learned more in ten pages in the course than I did in weeks of class. I have even bought a course on the paranormal and it was nothing and I mean nothing like what I have found here. The added plus to your course is the fact it is written in a way you understand every chapter. Would I recommend this course? Absolutely, with out a doubt. Why spend more money on every new book you can find on the paranormal when you can find everything you need in one course. I also have to say this course is worth far more than what you are asking and I would pay it as I'm sure anyone who spent what I have on all the other texts and courses out there would. I can't say enough about it other than I wish it was out sooner and thank you for taking the time to write what everyone truly needs to know and have it all in one course. Thank you again!" --Linda Gunn, CPI, CrossLight Paranormal Research, Jacksonville, FL

This fear has always put us away from gaining an interest to go out beyond the preconceived notions of the science and religion.

THANK YOU VERY MUCH DOUG!!!!" --Gaurav Tiwari, CPI, Houston, TX
