Electronic Voice Phenomenon (EVP) are the sounds of disembodied human-like voices of unknown origin that are heard through electronic devices. They are usually heard in the form of sounds imprinted on an audio recording or through radio noise.
The source of these voices is still not fully understood by paranormal investigators, but the phenomenon is widely researched and it is believed that EVPs are produced by spirits of the dead communicating with us. However, there are other theories as to the source of these voices, including subconscious psychic projection, sounds from another dimension or time.
Whatever the cause, EVP sessions have become a routine experiment during ghost hunts and the methods used to capture and analyse them are well understood. The aim of this course isn't to prove or disprove that EVPs are genuine contact with spirits, but to give you enough knowledge to give you the best chance of capturing high quality EVPs, and guidance on how to effectively analyse them so that you can form your own conclusion on their validity.
You'll learn how to effectively use some of the most common audio recording equipment and audio editing software, as well as learning how to discredit audio interference and unwanted sounds in recordings. The course also includes best practices for communicating with ghosts and spirits during an EVP session and advice on how to enhance and analyse your recordings.
The course goes over some topics already covered in our 'Advanced Scientific Theory for Paranormal Investigators' course, specifically Understanding Frequencies & Audio Waveforms, which is an important aspect of analysing EVP recordings.
We've put a lot of work in to making sure this course is useful, but if you sign up and find it's not what you expected, then get in touch and we'll fully refund you, no questions asked.

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. Even if they were, they would be of little interest to prospective employers. However, 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 six comprehensive modules, 'Defining Electronic Voice Phenomenon', 'The History of EVP Research', 'Choosing the Right Equipment,' 'How to Capture EVPs' and 'Analysing EVPs'. It covers everything from best practices for carrying out EVP sessions on location through to analysing audio waveforms.
Is this course aimed at novices or experts?
The course is suitable for beginner as well as established ghost hunters who want to improve their knowledge of the specifics of EVP research. Although it builds on the principles of our 'Practical Ghost Hunting and Scientific Analysis' course, it can be effectively studied as a standalone specialisation.
When can I access the course material and for how long?
Once you enroll 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 5.4 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 fourteen 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.
