                                                  Frequently Asked Questions


                                                  Is this a recognised qualification?
                                                  Unfortunately, due to the unknown nature of the paranormal, no qualifications in this field is academically recognised, and even if they were, would be of little interest to prospective employers. But we've worked hard to put together a course, which is designed to help you widen your knowledge and give beginners the confidence to go out and get involved in the paranormal.

                                                  What does the course involve?
                                                  You'll be able to work through five comprehensive modules: 'location,' 'logistics,' 'promotion and sales,' 'on the day,' and 'ghost hunting activities.' It covers everything from the basics of choosing and securing a venue, as well as researching its haunted history, to effectively planning for the big day, covering essential considerations like budgeting, risk assessments, and staffing. There's also extensive information on the suggested paranormal equipment required and activities that your guests can partake in.

                                                  Is this course aimed at novices or experts?
                                                  The course is suitable for those who, ideally, have a small amount of experience in the field of the paranormal and are looking to venture into the events industry. The course covers the basic principles of event planning and management, interwoven with an overview of paranormal investigation.

                                                  Is any additional documentation included?
                                                  The course includes a sample welcome script to greet your guests and run through the event's rules, an example event terms and conditions document, and a template risk assessment document.

                                                  When can I access for the course material and for how long?
                                                  Once you enrol onto this course you will get instant access to the course material, a summary of modules and lessons can be seen in the course curriculum above. You have unlimited access to this course, even after you have completed your final assessment, allowing you to revisit topics whenever you like.

                                                  How long does the course take to complete?
                                                  The average completion time from the point of purchase to passing the final assessment is 3.5 hours, but as you have unrestricted access to the course, this is really up to you. While it's possible to work through the course material in a few hours, we recommended taking your time in order to let the information soak in, a few hours per day is ideal.

                                                  Each module has an end of topic test, it's not a requirement to achieve a certain score in these tests but your score will give you an indication of the knowledge you've gained during the module and also highlight any gaps. You should then go back and revisit the module to ensure their are no gaps in your knowledge as you'll need a good understanding of the topic to complete the final assessment, which requires an 80% pass.

                                                  Will I receive a certificate?
                                                  A digital certificate of achievement you can print yourself will automatically be emailed to those who achieve a grade of 80% or higher in the final assessment. There is also the option to have a physical copy posted to you instead, which is normally dispatched with fourteens days of completion of the course. If you fail to achieve the required score, you are able to revisit the course material and try again as many times as you like. Certificates are professionally designed and printed. We hope they will be a keepsake of what we hope will be an enjoyable course.

                                                  What is digital accreditation?
                                                  As well as a certificate of achievement, a link will automatically be generated which you can share or link to. The web page will include your name and details of your courses you've completed. You can add the badge provided to your website or blog to show that you qualified in this specialist field.
