The Hypnosis Practitioner Training Institute Program

At HPTI we think that every Practitioner of Hypnosis should strive to expand their knowledge and skill base continuously. We also feel that each new practitioner should learn many different approaches and have a foundation of learning similar to that required of all helping professionals.

We provide courses for continuing education for Hypnosis Practitioners which are accepted by most of the major Hypnosis Certifying Organizations.  In addition, if you complete and pass the required courses from our catalog, many organizations accept our certification of competence to meet the standards for acceptance as a certified member.

Our courses are structured to provide 1 Unit of credit every week with each course being completed during the weeks they are offered (some exceptions may be arranged when justified).

We are using the Standard Collegiate Quarter System for calculating course unit credit.

Each Unit = 10 hours class time
