Member Specialization Certification Examination

These are the basic qualifications for specialist certification in Hypnotherapy
with the Society of Experiential Trance.

No one under the age of majority may examine for the Hypnotherapy specialization. Likewise, one must have earned at least a two-year college or university degree to be eligible for Hypnotherapy specialization with the Society of Experiential Trance.

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.

Note the required number of demonstrations for each skill in each type of Examination. Live Exams should be scheduled with a Certified Examiner. Please note that Video Exams require that the hypnotist work with a minimum of five different trance partners. See certification guidelines for further information.

All hypnotherapy specialist certification demonstrations must incorporate the use of clean session language and candidates must demonstrate a clear understanding and facility in guiding clients and trance partners rather than leading them. This is particularly true of any regression-based processes but applies to any and all hypnosis techniques.

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.
