FAQ’s for Hypnosis Course

Questions about the Course

Q: I have no prior experience as a hypnotist, are you saying this program will fully prepare me to be a hypnotist?

A: Yes. Many programs try to make hypnosis something that it is not. They will tell you that you will need to study for a certain number of hours or even years. In Steve’s 20+ years of teaching hypnosis, he has found that the basics of hypnosis can be taught in a very focus manner in a short period of time.

Q: Does this course teach self-hypnosis or hypnosis?

A: This course teaches you hypnosis so that you can perform hypnosis on other people. You will be able to apply what you have learned if you wish to use self-hypnosis.

Q: How exactly is the course conducted?

A: The course is a self-study program based 100% online and correspondence will be through email or mail, whichever you prefer. Upon enrollment, you will be provided with the following pdf’s:

  • Advanced Hypnotherapy - Hypnosis Book by Steve G. Jones, M.Ed.
  • Hypnotherapy Case Studies - Hypnosis Book by Steve G. Jones, M.Ed.
  • Hypnotherapy Scripts Volume 2 - Hypnosis Book by Steve G. Jones, M.Ed.
  • Hypnotherapy Inductions and Deepenings Volume 2 - Book by Steve G. Jones, M.Ed.

Q: How many modules and exams are a part of this course? How long are we given to complete them?

A: The course consists of 7 modules with the 8th module being the final exam. It generally takes 1 week for students to complete a module, but you can go at your own pace. Module 2-7 have homework that must be completed.

Q: How is the final exam conducted and how long do I have to complete it?

A: The final exam consists of 11 questions. You can use any material to answer the questions and you can go at your own pace.

Q: How long after completing the program will we receive our results?

A: Within a few days.

Q: I understand that the class is a minimum of 7 weeks and a maximum of 1 year. What if I would like to complete the class in a shorter time period of 7 weeks or longer than 1 year?

A: If you want to complete it in shorter than 7 weeks, send your assignments in when you have completed them. 7 weeks is only a suggested time period for people to pace themselves in a stress-free manner. We welcome course work turned in prior to 7 weeks. If you need to take longer than a year to complete the program, simply email Steve and request an extension. Extensions are generally granted as long as the situation warrants it.

Q: Some programs I have seen online are 300 hours or more. This training is much shorter. Is it just as good as those other programs?

A: Yes. In fact, this program is superior to any other hypnosis training currently available. In our extensive study of other training programs, we have found that the majority of programs available waste a considerable amount of time training hypnotists to perform procedures, which are generally reserved for licensed professionals such as psychologists or psychiatrists. Aside from creating a legal liability for the hypnotist, these programs also waste the money of the unsuspecting hypnosis student.

Questions about the Certification

Q: Will I be properly trained if all I take is your online certification program?

A: Ideally a hypnotist would be trained in a classroom setting with an instructor physically present. Unfortunately, this luxury is not practical for many people. When we factor in airfare, hotel, time away from work and family, etc. the costs both monetary and otherwise quickly add up. For this reason, many institutions have turned to online training as a viable alternative to meeting modern day needs. In fact, Columbia, Harvard, and Cornell have extensive online programs. Also, Penn, Dartmouth, and Yale offer online classes. Steve G. Jones, while working on his doctorate in education, extensively studied the online programs offered by Ivy League schools. He then was able to model the hypnosis training program to offer a similar level of training.

Q: Which organization grants the certificate and certifies my training?

A: The American Alliance of Hypnotists.

Questions about the Certificate

Q: Will I receive a certificate?

A: Upon completion of this program, you will receive a beautiful certificate sent via email, which you can print out and proudly display for your clients to see. It will have your name, title (Certified Hypnotist), and your certification number.

Q: What will the certificate look like? Is there a sample?

A: Click here for the sample of the certificate.

Q: Is the mailing of the certificate cost included in the course fee?

A: Yes.

Module 1: Review of basic hypnotic techniques

This module briefly, but thoroughly reviews the techniques taught by Steve G. Jones in the basic certification class. You will review the pre-talk, inductions, deepenings, scripts, amnesia, and trance termination.

Module 2: Pendulum for pre-hypnotic technique

Sometimes the client does not know what the actual problem is. A simple, elegant, powerful pendulum technique can enable you to quickly and easily get to the root of the problem even before you use hypnosis. Pendulums tap into the minor movements of the hand which are controlled by the subconscious mind, making this technique a direct link to the subconscious and a very impressive tool to share with your clients.

Module 3: Post hypnotic suggestions

Post-hypnotic suggestions are phrases spoken to a client while they are in hypnosis. These suggestions take effect after (post) the hypnosis session.

Module 4: Metaphors

Milton Erickson, MD, was perhaps the most brilliant mind ever to grace the hypnotherapeutic landscape. With seemingly simple stories (metaphors) he would cause a client to change behaviors. However, since he was simply telling a "story," the client would not necessarily be aware of the changes being programmed into his/her subconscious mind. Mastering the proper use of metaphors can distinguish you as a master hypnotist.

Module 5: Analogue marking

Imagine having the ability to weave commands into a sentence and have your client obey them. Well, that is what hypnosis basically is, right? Now imagine having the ability to do this whether they are in hypnosis or not. THAT goes BEYOND hypnosis and into the realms of true mastery of an art. Use of analogue marking is one more item which distinguishes the "men from the boys" in the world of hypnosis. Learn how to command a client to lose weight, stop smoking, etc. while simply talking with them and NOT using hypnosis. This technique even works on the phone!

Module 6: Phobias

Helping people overcome phobias is a powerful tool to have in your toolbox of hypnosis techniques. After completing this hypnotist certification training module, you will be able to work with the following phobias (just to name a few): Fear of flying, fear of roaches, fear of needles, fear of dental procedures, fear of public speaking, fear of driving on highways and freeways, fear of snakes, fear of dogs, fear of spiders, fear of heights, fear of success, fear of failure, and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).

Module 7: Final Exam

Upon completion of the course, you will want to demonstrate your new powerful abilities. This is a chance for you to do just that. You will receive a written exam and will also be required to submit an audio recording which you will already have completed as part of your homework.


Upon successful completion of the written (e-mail) final exam and review of your final recording, you will be mailed a beautiful Certified Hypnotist certificate from the American Alliance of Hypnotists.
