With the popularity of recent movies such as The Conjuring and The Conjuring 2, there seems to be more interest than ever in "demon hunters", as represented in the films by real-life paranormal investigators Ed and Lorraine Warren. Though Ed Warren died in 2006, Lorraine Warren continues to be a major figure in the New England Society for Psychic research (which she co-founded with her husband). While skeptics may dispute many details of the cases the Warrens have supposedly investigated together, the website and museum describing their paranormal claims still draws believers from around the world.
Given the rising fascination many people have with demonic possession and exorcisms, it's hardly surprising that Lorraine Warren and many other self-professed "demonologists" continue to be in demand for lectures, media presentations, and, yes, the occasional exorcism as well. Perhaps inevitably, we are seeing a rash in new online and off-line schools claiming to teach demonology to anyone with "genuine faith." Even the Warrens' website offers a couple of courses on demonology and paranormal investigation though they aren't intended to be a stand-alone program like what other schools are offering.
I should note that these demonology programs should not be confused with "legitimate" exorcism schools run by the Catholic Church and other major religions which are reportedly much more rigorous and limited to trained clerics. There is also no such thing as a certification process for demonologists, so, as with many other programs offered online, caveat emptor seems to be the main principle would-be demonologists should follow.
Here are some of the programs I have been able to find. Please note that they are only presented for your amusement and not meant as an endorsement.
And there you have just a few examples of what is available for any would-be demonologists out there. Again, I'm not endorsing any of these courses, pursue or not as you see fit.
And remember what I said about caveat emptor.
