The National Guild of Hypnotists is the world’s largest hypnosis organization and has a convention that is unmatched in quality and quantity of excellent and interesting seminars and workshops.
Master Hypnotist Certification
The student will accomplish 75 hours in classroom and approximately 100 hours at home distance learning.
This 175 hours will more than qualify the student for membership in the National Guild of Hypnotists.
Each student will be responsible for acquiring the necessary textbooks. You can get them at your local bookstore, or online at amazon.com or barnesandnoble.com. You may contact MIACS to order texts for a charge of $150. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org. Each student will receive their exams and texts after enrollment and paying for their texts. They will then complete their exams at their own pace.
Students will submit these exams to the Minnesota Institute of Advanced Communication Skills for grading. Each successfully completed exam represents approximately 20 hours of distance learning.
