Don't get me started - I still have nightmares about the doing the Pro TRs and Metering course. You spend months and in some cases years on the metering course and get to the end to get an RTC pass taking literally months in many students just to get a pass. What a bunch of crap!!!!
BUNCH OF CRAP!
The best way to learn the meter is to jump in with the auditing. Beforehand, you can simply clarify the meter manifestations in training, F/N, fall, rise, dirty needle, rock slam, theta bop, instant read, latent read,... It doesn't take long, a few hours at the most for the average student.
But to really learn the meter phenomena and what it might mean is to observe under actual auditing conditions. Using a mechanical read simulator or a student who is not in session to simulate reads is just wrong-headed.
In scientology-world, long runway and requiring some weird state of perfection is just a way to stop people from auditing.
In div 6, I had people co-auditing on the second night.
