Paranormal Training Will Take A New Direction!
OPIAR's training courses have changed for the final time! After three failed attempts at creating courses by hiring outside
parties, OPIAR Director Robert Markin has taken over the project and will be writing the course with the aide of Director
Erin Rose Hoiberg.
The courses have been merged into one large, extensive course that will cover all the major areas of paranormal phenomenon,
and will also include other smaller areas of phenomenon including "Fortean Phenomenon" and "Monster Hunting" for those who
have an inclination in this area.
The courses cost is set at $45 U.S. Currency and will also offer a $5 refund if the course CD is returned. The CD will
be available in Windows format. If you do not have a personal computer, other options will be available in mid-2004. Textbooks
are not included in the cost of the course. The reason of the higher cost is due to time, shipping, processing, and creation
of the course materials, and the production costs. However, in comparison with other similar courses, OPIAR has one of the
cheapest available that still covers everything most courses have to offer.
The course will include Case Studies, Reports, and other interesting things as well as include sample report forms and
other stuff! Keep checkin' back for more details soon!
THIS COURSE OFFERS CERTIFICATION THROUGH OPIAR, AND THREE OTHER GROUPS THAT WOULD ACCEPT THIS TRAINING ARE PENDING. RECERTIFICATION
COSTS $5 PER YEAR.
OPIAR offers its training courses to anyone who is interested in the study of paranormal phenomenon. OPIAR also requires
that this course be taken by any person who wishes to work with OPIAR on active investigations. OPIAR members will be offered
a discount (certain restrictions apply).
Estimated Course Availability: March/April 2004
