Halloween University | Haunted House School, Seminars, Classes, Education

Halloween University - HU - is a concept that was born in 2002 by Robert Kocher & Indrani Sen. After the initial concept was designed the ideas for a launch were discussed at Transworld 2004 at the haunters pavilion. The hope was that eventually Halloween University would be allowed to thrive an expanding part of the pavilion of Transworld itself as a continuing educational program for the Halloween & Haunt Industry.

In 2007, opportunity presented itself, as it was the first year of the Eastern Haunters Convention. The seminar classes at the convention were so overcrowded due to the huge demand for Halloween and Haunted Attraction knowledge. There was clearly a need for a much larger venue for education and the time for Halloween University was born.

In 2008, the Eastern Haunters Convention expanded with the National Halloween Convention to begin a phase into the National Haunters Convention & the National Halloween Convention by 2009. We were a part of that expansion with the seminar lineup being organized and run by Halloween University.

The initial early demand for seminars was so strong that two divisions of Halloween University were formed: The Professional School & The Public School.

The Professional School is geared for the serious haunt professional interested in furthering his or her knowledge. The classes are more expensive to attend, but allow us to bring in some of the heaviest hitters in the industry to attend. These classes are much more specific and advanced. In additional, these classes also allow for smaller groups giving you more intimate feel and personal attention. The knowledge of the professional classes earns you credits towards your Halloween University Degree.

The Public School division of classes will cover a much broader spectrum range of classes. These classes will have a lower cost, but will still cover many of the important topics that you will want to hear. They will just be a bit broader in scope.

Hope to see you there!

That does sound pretty cool. But seriously there is a LOT of free information on this site alone, and even more all over the web.

If where ever this class is, it's close to you, and you can aford it = great and hope you can share the highlights with us.

Maybe most of us here are just amatures, but I think everyone here is willing to share what we've learned with each other. There is no competition amongst us here. The only money involved is how much we can help each other save by sharing knowledge.

Maybe there are some new revelations in that class. I hope so ... and I hope someone here takes the class and shares significant highlights.:)

Cool idea. I would consider looking into webinars for the public side, for people like me that wont travel a thousand miles but are interested in what information you may have. LT Scare is correct in saying that there is tons of information on the web. But instructional classes really allow you to absorb alot. As a programmer there is thousands of websites that i can reference for code examples / tutorials, but I still gain so much more when I am sent to a course.

Now to convince my employers that your courses are proactive to the company mission! ;)
