Scientology only works to the degree it is delivered. No auditing = no Clears and OTs = no Scientology.
So how do you make an auditor?
The corrupt Church of Scientology stands by Miscavige’s program of the Golden Age of Tech, consisting of extensive training programs with vast numbers of patter drills, “what do you do?” drills, simulator drills and requiring RTC passes on TRs and Metering.
This is in addition to having to have studied the large number of basic books.
There are many people who have been put “through the mill” with the Golden Age of Tech and few of them are actually auditing. And those who had been auditing priorly, have been arbitrarily told their certificates are not valid unless they redo their training (once for GAT1 and again for GAT2).
At a recent dinner party a new acquaintance was explaining how he had started Scientology training after 1995 (post GAT) and had enjoyed the auditor training and not found it hard. He had trained up to Class V, and moved from preclear up to NOTs case level. He defended the Golden Age of Tech and felt it was worthwhile — but failed to see that there was an issue with the fact that a) he no longer wants to continue on the Bridge and b) he does not audit anyone, and never has. For the thousands of dollars spent, how is that equitable?
The truth is that auditors learn how to audit in the chair.
“All auditor goofs stem from unreality. Reality is found:
“A. By auditing and
“B. By familiarity with own bank and track.” LRH, HCOPL 12 September 1961 Curriculum for Clearing Courses.
This is also detailed in LRH ED 229 Int, 28 Sep 1978, The End of Endless Training:
“You can stuff a student with theory until it’s coming out of his ears but you won’t have an auditor until he AUDITS. You can put him through all the drills that have ever been dreamed up and you still won’t have an auditor until he AUDITS.
“We’ve had the datum for some time that a student too long on the runway is going to lose the spark and zeal he started out with.”
The problem in making auditors, from our view is not related to courses.There are extensive courses in the Church to become an auditor, and there are plenty of checksheets and materials in the field – – but the key missing element is the internship.
“The word INTERN or INTERNE means “An advanced graduate or a recent graduate in a professional field who is getting practical experience under the supervision of an experienced worker.”
“An internship, then, is serving a period as an intern, or an activity offered by an org by which EXPERIENCE can be gained.
“Internships have been arranged this long while for every auditing class.
“The apprenticeship of an auditor is done as an org intern.
“C/Ses very often have interns on their lines and sometimes have trouble with getting them to audit.
“The Why of this is that the intern seldom knows the definition of the word “intern” (which is as above). They sometimes thing they are still students. They do not know this fact:
“A COURSE GRADUATE BECOMES AN AUDITOR BY AUDITING.
“This means LOTS of auditing.” HCOB 19 July 1971 INTERNS
You can see this also in the policy letter of 24 August 1971 INTERN CHECKSHEETS, OKAYS TO AUDIT
“An OKAY TO AUDIT means two things. There are two “Okays to Audit”.
“On is OKAY TO AUDIT AS AN INTERN. This means one has done the checksheet to the satisfaction of the Intern Supervisor. Once can now auditor for intern qualifications.
“The other is OKAY TO AUDIT AS AN HGC AUDITOR. This means one has done the intern checksheet, has audited flublessly to many program completions and is passed by the HGC C/S,
“Any certification requires that teh intern meet both these requirements.
“These TWO Okays to Audit are required for any graduate certificate.
“There is a LOT of auditing between these two “Okays to Audit”. …
“Rome was not built in a day, no auditor ever became a flubless auditor in three sessions.”
In Milestone Two there has been an ongoing pilot, where auditors who have done the basic theory of a course, are then interned under qualified C/Ses. They audit, and audit and audit.
They receive instructs and crams as required – and in doing so, they gain the reality on auditing by auditing. We get star rate checkouts and Method 4’s done on key references, and we get them to audit, and audit, (and did we mention, audit?).
Not surprisingly, the system works, and auditors become smooth and flubless — and lots of auditing gets done. And the PCs win.
If you always wanted to be an auditor, and it never happened (for whatever reason), it is actually achievable through the basic training/internship line.
We have C/Ses that will happily intern auditors – no matter where you are located on the planet, or when they were trained (pre or post GAT).
It is simply doing what Ron did, and teaching people to audit, by auditing.
