In HCOB 16 August 1971 issue II, TRAINING DRILLS MODERNISED, Ron says, “The auditing skill of any student remains only as good as he can do his TRs.” He says further, “Academies were tough on TRs up to 1958 and have since tended to soften. Comm Courses are not a tea party.”
This is not to say they aren’t fun. I did the Comm Course in 1972, and it was seriously fun, and gave me wins that have stayed with me to this day.
Now, in 2015, we at Observation Mountain Academy are about to deliver our first Comm Course. I intend for this course to be fun and I intend for my students to have wins that will stay with them all their lives.
The course will start on Monday May 4th and run for two weeks, covering TRs 0 through 9. It is everything Ron put on the HAS Course, nothing more and nothing less. It’s not much reading and a whole lotta drilling.
If you know anyone who needs or wants to do a Comm Course, or if you want to do it or redo it yourself, contact us and book a seat in our courseroom: firstname.lastname@example.org
Here’s what a couple of our students have to say:
“I felt that I was being supervised how it would have been if LRH were still around and in his course room. Truly studying to learn something. For the first time ever in a course room I felt that it was OK to be there and to be me and just study without having to be fearful of a supervisor swooping in for the kill.
Thanks Dave, that was the best supervision I have ever had.” -LC
“We just had an evening in the academy and it was so cool. My twin and I worked on a Solo drill and it was great. Really worked out some bumps and know that this is going to make the Solo auditing much smoother.
Great supervision from Dave!” -NC
