ALL HASI SCHOOLS AND BRITISH ASSOCIATES
The training programme of the HASI was stabilized during the seven Clinical Course units. This has been developed into the HASI training schedule, and it is expected that this schedule will be fitted into the training programmes under use with no further modification than is absolutely necessary to fit the peculiar needs of the school.
The primary text of any school of any level is now The Creation of Human Ability – A Handbook for Scientologists. A secondary text, but almost equal in importance is Scientology: Group Auditor’s Handbook. Concentration on these two publications should be extreme. Only those tapes which will actually supplement these manuals should be employed.
His [the student's] instruction should begin with the lecture on Scientology and what it is and with an immediate assignment to auditing. This assignment should consist of the most elementary possible technique in order to accustom the auditor into achieving a two-way communication with the preclear.
The next step consists of Opening Procedure of 8-C. The three parts of this are given him one at a time to audit on his fellow students until he has become expert and assured in performing each part.
The next process in which the student is to be indoctrinated is Opening Procedure by Duplication.
Once the student is entirely comfortable and familiar and precise with Opening Procedure by Duplication he is instructed in Remedying Havingness and Spotting Spots in Space.
Now that the student can remedy havingness on preclears, he is permitted to run Consideration in the form of Significances, having preclears put significances into things. Only when the student has learned to audit significances and has had all the processes he is being taught as above run upon him is it particularly safe to engage upon much theory or upon more complex processes, for the student turned loose to consider at will may otherwise begin to make nothing out of preclears and mountainous somethings out of processes.
At this point, Granting of Beingness in the form given in the Appendix of Issue One of the Handbook for Scientologists should be run thoroughly by the student and on the student and he should hear the L.R.H. lecture on that subject from the Seventh Clinical Course.
Only when all of the above has been accomplished, and with certainty, should the student be embarked upon the use of Intensive Procedure as given, be initiated into the mysteries of exteriorization and the general data of earlier Scientology. We must be very definite at this point that it would be far, far better to turn out a student who had learned the steps prior to studying the Handbook itself, as given above, and graduate with those steps firmly in his grasp than to cover a multitude of subjects and processes in Scientology on which he had a poor reality by the end of the course.
The training materials ... should include the ‘Professional Course Lectures’ by L.R.H. made in July 1954.

I have written this book for you to help you with your processing.
It combines all the procedures of major workability developed and tested during seven Advanced Clinical Course units. As processes were developed and tested, I discovered that more and more workability was to be found in communication alone. Thus Intensive Procedure was not developed straight from theory, but was evolved out of theory where it agreed with workability.
The stress is upon certainty of communication on the part of the preclear with objects in the physical universe. The Formula of Communication itself, in all of its parts, must be entirely rehabilitated with the preclear in the physical universe before the preclear can then begin with his own universe.
The goal of Intensive Procedure is to bring about a complete tolerance and comfort on the part of the preclear for the physical universe, his exteriorization and general rehabilitation.
