Those studying to become exorcists must have received Jesus Christ of Nazareth as their only savior and Master or they can be in peril. They should have confessed & renounced their past sins, idolatry and occult practices or the demons can jump on them.  They should pray for divine guidance and wisdom, since the subject has been drawn into a wide variety of demonic activities. They should know how to defend themselves from physical attack by a demonized subject. They should wear culturally acceptable clothes.
