Here are a few testimonials from students who took the ghost hunting courses taught by Patti Starr at the Bluegrass Technical and Community College, at the Ghost Hunter shop, and the Mystical Fair Lexington :
My friends and colleagues. I write to endorse Patti Starr's Basic Ghost Hunting Certification Class. I have been investing in the Paranormal field since 2004, and I have wanted to take her class for many years. After more than a decade, I finally took Patti's course on January 19, 2019. A lot of people have strong opinions regarding the value or validity of such a course within the paranormal field. I have had numerous friends take her course over the years, and by what I experienced I can say that her material - though fundamental - certainly has not been stagnant.
Patti is open minded and it appears that she has changed some of her original precepts over time. Any person with experience and who is genuine will do this. We all learn and grow.
Patti has well over 40 years experience as a ghost hunter and investigator into many different types of paranormal phenomenon. She has explored these mysteries with everyone who is anyone within the paranormal community. Even though I had a decade (and more) experience under my belt, I can say without question that I learned a great deal during this four+ hour course. The course covers all basic knowledge, introductory theories, fundamental equipment and their usage, pieces of past evidence - photo and evp audio, as well as a practical session with students on a "mini ghost hunt". Whether you are a seasoned investigator or a brand new person entering the field, I can and do strongly encourage you to take the Basic "Ghost Hunter Certification Course" as instructed by Ms. Patti Starr.
Respectfully, Yours In The Light, Fr. Pneuma, Society President, OAB (Order Of The Star Of Bethlehem), Rt.Rev.+ Michael W. Humphrey, Acting President, GPS (Georgetown Paranormal Society).
I was so excited to take Patti Starr’s Ghost Hunting Certification class! It had long been a dream of mine. The class and Ms. Starr did not disappoint. Even though I had some knowledge of paranormal investigating, I came away with a much more common sense approach and a full understanding of the basic equipment to use.
The new format makes the class accessible without losing any of the necessary skills or information.
The “hunt”’at the end of the course was eventful and really helped the class members to apply what we had just learned. I’d give the class 4 stars and a definite 10 out of 10. By Dena Amburgy
"Thanks to Patti's methods, my wife and I discovered amazing phenomena beyond our rational explanation. In even our first investigations we received remarkable mist and orb photographs, witnessed electrical phenomena, and recorded nearly a dozen EVPs. These discoveries have given a sense of confirmation to what our faith always knew. Our journey into "ghost hunting" has increased our appreciation and awareness of history, science, and religion as well as the 'paranormal'." - Eric Duckworth, West Point Alumni
"This 'classy' southern lady teaches about ghosts and spirits with knowledge, poise, enthusiasm and belief. Her knowledge of the spirit world reaches out and engages you in such a way that you just know you’ll never be the same again. By profession I am a high school teacher, but I am also a Para-midwife, and an Emergency Medical Technician that sees life come and go everyday. As one of Patti’s students, she has shown me new parameters of my connection to the spirit world. I now realize that this coming and going of life could hold elements of hope and enlightenment." - Paula S. Lewis
"Patti Star's ghost investigation techniques are top notch! Patti's book offers a wealth of information and guidance to help the amateur and experienced ghost hunters. After implementing Patti’s techniques our ghost-hunting group was able to gain the reputation that's kept business knocking on our door. Thanks Patti." - Carrie Galloway
"After I took Patti's Introduction to Ghost Hunting class, my husband and I decided to try dowsing. On our first trip out to a small graveyard I was amazed to find my dowsing rods moving on their own. It never failed to identify a grave every time I passed over one. It was so cool and exciting, it really helped me become a believer in dowsing." - Sonja J. Hatton
Here is a testimonial from a participant of one of Patti Starr’s many Seminars in 2002:
"After one seminar with Patti, my family decided to try our luck at dowsing. Imagine our surprise when on our very first try we got orbs in about 40% of our photos and captured 3 EVPs on microcassette! After years of interest, we are now in the process of becoming certified ghost hunters after having such a positive experience. Thank you Patti!" - Starr Chaney
Here are testimonials from media personality that have witnessed Starr’s investigation first hand before reporting on them:
"If enthusiasm was contagious, everyone would believe in ghosts after spending only a short time with Certified Ghost Hunter Patti Starr. I had the opportunity to meet Patti in October 1998 when I was working on a series of ghost stories about Nelson County, Ky. Patti, a former manager of The Old Talbott Tavern in Bardstown, was eager to share not only her experiences at the Tavern, but talked with me about her beliefs and experiences throughout her life. Since then, I have had the opportunity to take part in several ghosts hunts with Patti. She approaches each one with ardor and professionalism. She is a highly-skilled ghost hunter who believes deeply in her work."
