    Or Graduate V Auditor with all Technical Specialist Courses.

    Which is fortunate since the COS isn't offering the SHSBC, hasn't for years, and there is no indication that it is going to in the near future.

    Yes, IIRC, SHSBC is level V auditor.
    (I did intern course sup on that over 40 years ago.)

    Hate to be pedantic, but SHSBC graduates are Class VI Auditors. Except they aren't being made anymore.

    Graduate V Auditors haven't taken the SHSBC.

    Hey you have any idea when the SHSBC was stopped being delivered?

    I would be specifically interested in ASHO....

    I was on the SHSBC for several years and on level O, next to last level, when the Golden Age of Tech 2 (?) came out. We were all routed over to CC to do the new Upper Indoc Course, Golden Age style...

    Then back to ASHO.....then shortly after, the E-Meter Course came out Golden Age Style....and they wanted me to pay for that...which was around $10,000....and I said enough is enough and left. (of course the E-Meter Course is part of the BC....and I'd already done were the Upper Indocs)

    So basically they wasted around 3 years of my life....and over 10 thousand dollars of my money.

    I wondered if the BC kinda fell apart after the Golden Age 2 came out...?

    ASHO had just spent a fortune on remodeling the BC delivery area....

    And the entire BC had been revamped Golden Age of Tech 1...with new course packs and "corrected Red Volumes.... and all....and announced at a big the time I had already started it...

    @Leland are you referring to old ASHO on Temple street or later ASHO in Big Blue? Just curious.

    Actually, you're both right.

    In the 1970's, at the time @programmer_guy mentions, Class V auditor meant you were halfway through the SHSBC. If you look at an old grade chart from that time you can see it on there. A Class VI was someone who'd completed the BC.

    Until 1982, Dns came before Grades 0-IV. A Dn auditor was "unclassed," i.e. he had no number assigned. In 1982 the grade chart got switched around and they moved Dns after the grades. "Class V" now came to mean a Class IV auditor who was also a NED auditor.

    Here's a 1970 Grade Chart. You can see it on here.

    I used to stare at that chart in amazement looking at the EP's, this chart gives them as ability gained and ability lost. I would wonder of having those abilities. I suppose that was the carrot or carrots.

    In looking at the title now:


    what a joke, really, it's all words of bullshit or rhetoric. ROFLMAO

    What a closed knit group of people hubbard developed. Every step on his bridge entails time and money and not looking at anything else to solve one's problems. What a money maker, although as we know not everybody and most did not fall for it.

    Every step of the grade chart involves money, the work was free so keep it so Hubbard said, ROFLMAO

    Anybody want a certificate from scientology saying you achieved a certain level? LOL

    here's an example of hubbard's certificates as mention in the grade chart.

    let's say you achieved grade 1, new modern chart says ability to solve any problem and recognize the source of problems. WOW! What a certificate to have!

    You walk into Microsoft and say you are a Grade 1 Certificate holder of Scientology, I can handle your problems. See, it says so, I'm a Grade 1 Completion.

    Will you be escorted out the door silently and told thank you for applying for the job or will you be hired on the spot?
