“I think one of the biggest mistakes people make is thinking they need to go into a certain profession or act a particular way because a small group of people (usually family and friends) think they should. What the rest of us want is for you to be yourself and to share your unique gifts with the world.” — Dr. Steve G. Jones

Advanced Hypnosis Certification Course Curriculum

Module 1: Review of Basic Hypnosis Techniques

You will review the basic hypnosis course and the parts of a hypnosis session: pre-talk, induction, deepening, script, amnesia and trance termination.

Module 2: Pendulum Technique for Pre-Hypnotic Diagnosis

The pendulum technique is used to gather information from the client’s subconscious mind prior to the hypnosis session by
examining the client’s otherwise undetectable physical response to questions.

Module 3: Post-Hypnotic Suggestions

A post-hypnotic suggestion is a suggestion given to a client while they are in a hypnotic state. This suggestion is acted upon when the client is not in hypnosis. They are different from general suggestions in that they are specific commands for specific actions or perceptions. They can be triggered by words, actions, or as a result of time.

Module 4: Metaphors

Hypnotic metaphor is one of the most elegant tools available for assisting people in the process of personal transformation, healing and growth. The major purpose of hypnotic metaphor is to pace and lead an individual’s experience through the telling of a story that helps that individual access resources necessary for change.

Module 5: Analog Marking

Analog marking means adding emphasis to a word or phrase. This is usually done with an unobtrusive gesture, facial expression, or a touch to emphasize certain words non-verbally as you are talking to someone. The marked out words give an additional message.

Module 6: Phobias

In this module, you will learn how to help clients with fears.

Module 7: Final Exam

Upon completion of the course, you will want to demonstrate your new powerful abilities. This is a chance for you to do just that. On the last page of your course manual, you will find a personal login code where you will go online to take a multiple-choice exam and submit your homework and essay for Dr. Steve to review.

Q: How many modules and exams are a part of this course? How long are we given to complete them?
A: The course consists of 6 modules with the 7th module being the final exam. It generally takes 1 week for students to complete a module, but you can go at your own pace. Module 2-6 have homework that must be completed. You will submit your homework at the end of the course by uploading it online for Dr. Steve to review.

Q: How is the final exam conducted and how long do I have to complete it?
A: On the last page of your course manual is a private registration code you will use to register for the online exam. The multiple-choice exam consists of 19 questions. You must get 75% correct in order to pass the multiple-choice portion of the exam. You will have 3 attempts to pass. If you fail 3 times, you will be locked out of re-taking the exam for 60 days. You will then get another 3 attempts. Upon passing the multiple-choice exam, you will then need to upload your course homework. You must also submit an essay. Dr. Steve will review all of your work at one time. Please allow one week for him to review your material.

Q: How long after completing the program will we receive our results?
A: You will automatically learn whether you passed or failed the multiple choice portion. Once you pass the multiple choice exam you can submit your essay and homework. Please allow Dr. Steve one week to review your submitted material. You will be notified via email whether you passed or failed.

Q: I understand that the class is a minimum of 8 weeks. What if I would like to complete the class in a shorter time period of 8 weeks?
A: If you want to complete it in shorter than 8 weeks, simply follow the instructions on the last page of your course manual. 8 weeks is only a suggested time period for people to pace themselves in a stress-free manner. We welcome course work turned in prior to 8 weeks.

Q: Some programs I have seen online are 300 hours or more. This training is much shorter. Is it just as good as those other programs?
A: Yes. In fact, this program is superior to any other hypnosis training currently available. In our extensive study of other training programs, we have found that the majority of programs available waste a considerable amount of time training hypnotists to perform procedures, which are generally reserved for licensed professionals such as psychologists or psychiatrists. Aside from creating a legal liability for the hypnotist, these programs also waste the money of the unsuspecting hypnosis student.

Questions about the Certification

Q: Will I be properly trained if all I take is your Online certification program?
A: Ideally a hypnotist would be trained in a classroom setting with an instructor physically present. Unfortunately, this luxury is not practical for many people. When we factor in airfare, hotel, time away from work and family, etc. the costs both monetary and otherwise quickly add up. For this reason, many institutions have turned to Online training as a viable alternative to meeting modern day needs. In fact, Columbia, Harvard, and Cornell have extensive Online programs. Also, Penn, Dartmouth, and Yale offer Online classes. Dr. Steve G. Jones, while working on his doctorate in education, extensively studied the Online programs offered by Ivy League schools. He then was able to model the hypnosis training program to offer a similar level of training.

Q: Will your certification be accepted in my state (any state in the US)?
A: Yes.

Q: Is this the only training I will need for my state? A: Yes, this is the only training you will need in order to call yourself a certified hypnotist. However, you are encouraged to see our list of states in the United States that have regulations concerning hypnosis and you are also advised to seek legal advice when in doubt. Q: Will your certification be accepted in my country (any country other than the US)?
A: Yes. Most countries other than the US do not regulate hypnotists. To be certain, be sure to check with your local guidelines.

Q: When I complete the program, what will my title be?
A: You will be a Certified Advanced Hypnotist

Q: Which organization grants the certificate and certifies my training?
A: The American Alliance of Hypnotists.

Q: I live outside the US, is this training still valid for me?
A: You are encouraged to research the laws in your area. We do not have a list of legal requirements by country. We do however have graduates of this program practicing in many countries around the world. If you live in Ontario, Canada, we do have a document that will give you some guidance. You can find it here.

Q: Is the certification recognized by any universities?
A: Although our program is taught in several universities and the main text book, Basic Hypnotherapy for Professionals, is a class text book designed for classroom instruction, we are not aware of any universities that recognize credits for this program.

Questions about the Certificate

Q: Will I receive a certificate?
A: Upon completion of this program, you will receive a beautiful certificate via email, which you can print out and proudly display for your clients to see. It will have your name, title (Certified Advanced Hypnotist), and your certification number.

Q: What will the certificate look like? Is there a sample?
A: Click here for the sample of the certificate.

A: No, we do not ship physical certificates. A digital PDF is the only certificate you will receive.
