Cryptozoology Certification

Guest blogger Madrid101 shares the following:

There is a college called Flamel College, which gives you a Cryptozoology Certification.

As part of the program, they send you the textbook Cryptozoology A to Z. This correspondence course includes a resource CD of books, photographs, drawings, articles, and forms for cryptozoological research and a complete manual and course syllabus.

Tuition for this course is $85 and includes the price of all necessary items and books. Students must pass a final examination with a score of 70% or above to receive a certification in this course. If you want it attend, visit here.

If you wish to go on expeditions, join the British Columbia Scientific Cryptozoology Club and become a Benefactor Member. They will bring you on expeditions around the world, but you pay your own expenses.

Right now I attend Flamel College online and I am actually learning. I have joined the BCSCC (hopefully to go on a expedition soon). I recommend you have a good paying job to afford this. ~ Madrid101

This is the first time I’ve heard about this. I was not consulted or have anything to do with this program, to date, despite how it might appear on the Flamel College website. However, needless to say, I appreciate the use of my book as their textbook. ~ Loren.

Loren Coleman About Loren Coleman
Loren Coleman is one of the world’s leading cryptozoologists, some say “the” leading living cryptozoologist. Certainly, he is acknowledged as the current living American researcher and writer who has most popularized cryptozoology in the late 20th and early 21st centuries. Starting his fieldwork and investigations in 1960, after traveling and trekking extensively in pursuit of cryptozoological mysteries, Coleman began writing to share his experiences in 1969. An honorary member of Ivan T. Sanderson’s Society for the Investigation of the Unexplained in the 1970s, Coleman has been bestowed with similar honorary memberships of the North Idaho College Cryptozoology Club in 1983, and in subsequent years, that of the British Columbia Scientific Cryptozoology Club, CryptoSafari International, and other international organizations. He was also a Life Member and Benefactor of the International Society of Cryptozoology (now-defunct). Loren Coleman’s daily blog, as a member of the Cryptomundo Team, served as an ongoing avenue of communication for the ever-growing body of cryptozoo news from 2005 through 2013. He returned as an infrequent contributor beginning Halloween week of 2015. Coleman is the founder in 2003, and current director of the International Cryptozoology Museum in Portland, Maine.
