How To Become A Paranormal Investigator
We often get asked “how can I become a ghost hunter?”. In this article we cover the best way to become a paranormal investigator.
Learn as much as you can about ghost hunting
The world of the paranormal can be a little intimidating to anyone looking to start researching it. The best thing you can do before you go out on an investigation is read as much as you can on the topic. There are thousands of books out there on all the different types of hauntings as well as books on other people’s experiences. It can be difficult to know where to start looking, which is why we suggest our next point.
Take a course in paranormal studies
If you don’t have time to read through hundreds of books, then consider taking a ghost hunting and paranormal investigation course. The material covered comes from years of experience and is taught by expert paranormal investigators. The course enables you to get up and running fast by talking you through the types of hauntings, the equipment you will use, how to carry out a scientific investigation and even how to set up your own team. Some course such as ours also provide ways you could turn your new passion into a full time business.
Get to know the ghost hunting equipment
The equipment used in a paranormal investigation can seem complex to a newcomer. There are so many different meters used to measure different things. The best way to learn how to use these is through a course or by watching one of the many ghost hunting TV shows. Nearly every show uses the same equipment and they will always run through how it works,
Go on a few paid ghost hunts
Before you decide to set up your own group, it is worth getting some real world experience. There are many ghost hunting teams that allow people to pay to come along with them. This is a great introduction to ghost hunting. You will get to try some of the equipment out for real before you decide what to buy for yourself. Make sure you go with a reputable group for your first investigation. Check out their feedback on Facebook or their reviews before you book.
Set up your own paranormal investigation team or apply to join an existing one
Once you have been on a few ghost hunts, you can then decide if you want to set up your own group or join another one. If you decide to set up your own then you will need to keep in mind that you will need to purchase equipment and you will need public liability insurance as most venues require you to have this before they let you in.
If you want to join a group, then ask that group if you can come with them on a couple of investigations first. You need to make sure that you get along and they work in the same way as you. Many groups will ask what experience you have and some have started asking for some formal training before they will let you join.
