Paranormal Investigation 101 and 102
We offer two courses on Paranormal Investigations that go over how to conduct a paranormal investigation from start to finish. Each course is 4 weeks in length and ends with an actual investigation of a location. This is a fee based program.
Investigate with TnT Paranormal
We offer an "Investigate with TnT Paranormal" event where we partner with a location to allow the public to investigate the location with a paranormal team. Pricing varies based on the location and what services are desired.
NOTE: This is not a client based investigation; go to the Contact Us page to make that type of request.
We offer assistance to historic locations to help them with clean-up efforts. There is no fee associated with this effort.
Meet and Greets
We have worked several Meet and Greets to educate the public about the paranormal and our team. There is no fee associated with this effort. All we ask is to be able to advertise and promote our team at the event.
Presentations and/or Lectures for a Conference or Other Event
We offer a 45 minute to 1 hour long program on various topics related to the paranormal. The fee for these presentations will vary based on the event, topic, location of the conference/event, travel requirements, other requirements, etc.
