Membership qualifications

You must have successfully completed an approved course and be able to provide a copy of a current Certificate. This certificate must be from a National or International school or Board. However, local training or certifications are not acceptable. Most states and any legitimate Board will not accept this type of training.

Most important, you must not have been convicted of a felony or have served any jail time. We will not accept, without exceptions, any registered sex offenders for membership or for certification. We are the only board to screen its members, thus maintaining our organization's high standards and ensuring that our profession is one for all to enjoy. These high standards must be maintained for two reasons: 1) to maintain the public's positive perception of Hypnosis, and 2) to comply with new laws, as the States are now starting to regulate Hypnosis.

Information about our board

This International Board was established with one goal in mind: to bring Hypnosis to a higher level than ever before, to set and maintain a high level of standards internationally, and to be the number one organization for competent and professional Hypnotists/Hypnotherapists from around the world. Our Directors consist of professional Hypnotherapists, including Doctors and Teachers of Hypnotherapy from the U.S. and abroad.

We are the only board that totally supports its members with complete information and ideas for improvement. The board offers Professional Board Certification and Teaching Credentials. Our materials are the best available and at the most affordable prices offered anywhere. We are the only organization for Hypnosis and Hypnotherapy that maintains these high standards. Our board will only accept individuals who prove to be qualified for membership in this field with no criminal record.

We investigate any and all complaints of wrongdoing of any member and take whatever appropriate action may be deemed necessary. Consequently, we will always maintain the highest level of professional standards. We have been a member in good standing with the Better Business Councils of Central Florida for 10 years.

We are also a member of the American Association for Higher Education, located in Washington DC.,  members of  The World Wide Web Chamber Of Commerce, Professional Board of Hypnotherapy, Inc. , The International Distance Educator's Association, The Florida Distance Learning Association and The United States Distance Learning Assioation.
