The Tarot Consultant Certification course (HS220) is a complete class on how to use the tarot cards for personal guidance or professional readings. The course uses meditation, visualization, storylines and an ingenious grid system that greatly simplifies learning the cards. This takes out all the hard work and gets you reading in just a few hours. After that, it is mainly "practice makes perfect."
The hardest part of learning tarot is remembering all the card meanings (especially the court cards), as well as learning the more intricate techniques of conducting a reading. The instructors of this course have designed a unique system using accelerated learning techniques, audios, visualizations, and meditations to anchor the meanings and interpretations of all the cards.
As part of the instruction, students receive three free analyses of their readings. Simply do a reading and send the card layout and your interpretations to your instructors, and they will add their expertise to give you greater insights into your talents.
The course comes complete with a comprehensive manual, three guided audio sessions, as well as other many other extra resources. The entire course is sent on two CDs or can be downloaded for instant access and faster certification. Here are some of the resources included:
This course is taught by world renowned tarotologists Linda Campbell and John Gaydon. Upon successful completion of the HS220 exam and submitted readings, graduates are awarded the Tarot Consultant's Certificate. This course is available by mail or as an online download. Tuition for the entire course including all materials above is $75.

Parapsychology is the scientific study of paranormal phenomena. The "paranormal" (literally "beyond the normal") refers to exceptional human experiences that do not seem to be explainable in terms of our everyday understanding or known scientific principles. Paranormal experiences often seem weird, uncanny, or unnatural, but are really part of a hidden part of nature of which we are not aware. Topics include: Extrasensory Perception; Telepathy; Clairvoyance and Clairaudience; Psychometry; Precognition and Premonitions; Remote Viewing; Channeling and Mediumship; Dowsing; Past Life Memories, Out of Body and Near Death experiences, and Psychokinesis. A complete sheet of 25 Zener testing cards and scoresheets is included on the Resource CD.

EVP Technician Training
Electronic Voice Phenomena (EVP) are unexplainable paranormal audible events of unknown origin, which can be heard and captured in recordings on various types of electronic recording apparatus. The phenomenon has been captured using radios, televisions, tape recorders, telephones and answering machines, film, and a variety of digital equipment. The most successful efforts involve using pure “White Noise,” a random background sound devoid of any outside or terrestrial signals. Interest in EVP began in the1920s, when Thomas Edison suggested the possibility of constructing a machine to communicate with the dead. “It is possible to construct an apparatus,” he said in an interview in Scientific American, “which will be so delicate that if there are personalities in another existence or sphere who wish to get in touch with us in this existence or sphere, this apparatus will at least give them a better opportunity to express themselves than the tilting tables and rapping and ouija boards and mediums and the other crude methods now purported to be the only means of communication.” During World War II there was a rash of EVP recordings intercepted by military equipment, but serious research began with the electronic age in the 1950s. Today most paranormal researchers agree that EVP is an actual, recurring system of interdimensional communication. Students will be taught how to successfully capture EVP using a variety of equipment, how to set up EVP sessions, how to capture evidence of the phenomena, and how to record and analyze the results using the computer software provided. EVP is the fastest growing segment of paranormal research and many organizations are seeking certified EVP technicians.
The course CD includes the EVP Technician Manual, setup check-sheets, and a sampling of startling, actual EVP recordings. Sound monitoring, editing, and enhancing software is also included on a CD. Tuition for this course is $45 and includes the textbook and CD. Certificate is sent with the course. Just fill it in after successfully completing the self-scoring exam in the manual.
