PLEASE READ VERY CAREFULLY

All our services ARE FREE, except for the annual membership dues of $75 (Which is optional), a common standard practiced and implemented by all legitimate membership organizations in the United States. It is optional. You don't have to join the federation, and thus you don't have to pay membership fee. It is totally up to you.

Worth adding that the INDEPENDENT Examiner who will administer the test, develop the test procedures, interview you, assess your competence, and spend his/her time starting and completing the whole process, and working with you independently from the federation is entitled to a honorarium of $75; thus you pay the examiner directly, and Not the federation, because the federation will not receive a penny from any source, from you or anybody else, for the test or any other service. Usually when you receive your college diploma of Doctor in Medicine, or Juris Doctorate, you pay your college for your diploma as expected. And when you join The Bar or the American Medical association, you pay your membership fee. The two payments/fees are totally separate. One for Certification, the other for membership. The same applies to the federation or any other professional membership organization in the United States. You can  be certified and tested without joining the federation and paying a membership fee. You decide. It is optional.

If you wish (OPTIONAL) to receive your diploma of "Tested" and "Certified", you will be required to pay $10 to cover the expenses of printing the diploma, the Golden Seal, and shipping the diploma (United States Postage). Again, it is optional. Thus you don't have to pay the $10, if you don't wish to receive your diploma, still you remain Certified and Tested by the federation.

Psychic Detectives'  Category

Duration of the Test (Generalities):

  • 1-Initial Interview on the phone. Duration: Up to 20 minutes.
  • 2-Initial First Test administered on the phone. Length: Undetermined.
  • 3-Second Test (Challenge/Proficiency Test): Duration varies from 40 minutes to 60 minutes for each section of the test, as determined by the Chief Examiner.
Taking the Test: Requirements/Criteria to successfully pass the test:

Level one certification

  • Examination for individuals wishing to obtain a certification in psychic detective/missing persons. Each applicant will have two choices:
  • a-Missing person
  • b-Criminal
  • 1-The Chief Examiner will have several selected cases that are solved each will be in an envelope and will assign a number (random number generated - 9 digits). 
  • 2-The applicant will read the number on the envelope and be asked to write as much information as possible that they get from just being read the number off the envelope. Duration varies from 40 minutes to 60 minutes.
  • 3-Each applicant will have an opportunity to work on two cases. Duration varies from 60 minutes to 80 minutes. Chief Examiner Shellee Hale stated: “I am looking for better than 50% hits specific to the case in the folder - If they choose a coordinate for a body on a missing person case that is within 200 yards of where a body was found they would pass without the individual specific hits.

 Level 2 or advanced certification would require taking the following courses:

  • 1-Missing Persons Protocol
  • 2-Report writing
  • 3-Ethical principles
  • 4-Investigative strategies

 

What Do We Need to Find a Missing Person? The more information you can provide the investigator the better when trying to locate a missing person or child. Most often detectives are looking for specific information and will not be impressed with calls from "psychics" that are repeating publicly released information even if you did not read it.  The more specific and clear you are when representing your information and theory to the detectives the more receptive they will be to receiving it.  Report writing is key and will help you establish a record for yourself and the missing persons file with the law enforcement agency.

What Do We Need to Solve a Crime?

Suspect related information to help in a unsolved crime is always best handled in confidence with law enforcement; you never want to give the criminal a heads up that you are on to them unless it is part of a larger strategy.  It is also not a good idea to give this information to a private party associated with a victim or their family, they may take revenge based on your statements for which you may have some accountability for by law.
