What is Para-Class?

Para-Class is a new initiative by the Paranormal Research Association of Boston to give you the chance to learn the main techniques used in a scientific paranormal research team. Whether you want to get more education, start your own team, be a better candidate to join an existing team or just enjoy the TV shows and want to lean more, Para-Class is for you.
This course is a variation of the training received by PRAB trainees. There is no aspect of psychic / mediumship as the PRAB does not utilize these services as we do not believe they enhance our scientific ethos.
All instructors are senior members of the PRAB, with some guest speakers from other teams.

How long does the class run?

The class runs for 6 weeks in the evening time. Each session is only 2 hours long. Remember, this is an introduction to the science of paranormal research.

The class is split into 6 sessions covering

Session 1: Introduction to Paranormal Research
Session 2: Introduction to Equipment
Session 3: Data Analysis: Audio
Session 4: Data Analysis: Visual
Session 5: Interview Techniques for the Paranormal Investigator
Session 6: Starting a Paranormal Research Team

How much does the class cost?


Course Code #5111F
