Society of Experiential Trance Institute The Online Institute at periodically adds new course offerings for basic certification as well as advanced specialist programs with the Society of Experiential Trance for Continuing Education Unit credit, certifications of completion, professional specialization certification, and much more. This dynamic growing program is poised to expand over the coming years.

For those looking for an intensive review to supplement live training or a distance learning option, the Eroticatrance Program includes explanations and demonstrations for the skillsets required for Specialization Certification in Erotic Hypnosis with the Society of Experiential Trance (please note, the video program also contains a number of other methods in addition to the minimum required for SET specialist certification). Additionally, this video program is available via our partner store at or via the direct link at here.

Candidates who have taken a live course with an SET Certified Instructor have one year to finish their Specialist Certification requirements by submitting and passing an exam (live or video). Additionally, if they submit a video examination for evaluation by their instructor, the number of demonstrations required are the same as those indicated in the Course or Live column rather than those indicated in the Video exam column. If they complete their Specialist Certification requirements within one year, then the Specialist Certification is gratis for those who are currently Certified Hypnotist members in good standing with the SET. Those who are not currently Certified Hypnotist members may receive a Certificate of Completion for their course instead, if they are enrolled as non-certified Associate Members of the SET.
