1a) Introduction to Ghost Hunting – Welcome

Welcome to my free Introduction to Ghost Hunting course.

I wrote this course to share the basics of ghost hunting, so you can enjoy investigations and perhaps lead some of your own.

The original course appeared online in the late 1990s.  They included PDFs (the same text as the online lessons) and podcasts.

I updated the lessons in October 2013. Then, in 2016, when I moved my ghost hunting information to EncounterGhosts.com, I made a few changes in the course. Mostly, I removed really outdated advice and links.

Now, the course is being reorganized and radically updated at GhostHuntingAcademy.com. My goal — fingers crossed — is to complete the major course changes by Halloween 2017. (The full course overhaul may continue into early 2018.)

Note: If GhostHuntingAcademy.com isn’t available — due to heavy traffic or maintenance — it’s also at a WordPress.com site.

What to expect

This is a four-part course for beginning ghost hunters. Most people will complete one lesson per week. Some will finish the course sooner, many will take longer.

At the conclusion of this course, you can download a Certificate of Completion. The certificates are online, available on the honor system.

(In other words, I trust that you won’t skip the lessons in this course and simply print out a certificate for yourself.)

On this page, you’ll see a list of the lessons and the individual chapters in them.

Feel free to print copies of the pages in this course for your ghost hunting group.  You don’t need my permission.
