The Clinical Hypnotherapy Diploma Examination
& Association Membership
The following supersedes all previously issued details on taking the examination.
THE QUALIFYING EXAMINATION
The following applies:
2nd and Subsequent Attempts at the Examination
In the unlikely event you fail the your first attempt at the examination, the following applies:
You are eligible, subject to the following conditions, to take the final Diploma Examination again at a cost of $30.00 (US). These fees apply to all subsequent attempts at the examination.
The examination is multiple choice and taken online. i.e. there are three possible answers to each question with one being correct.
There are 100 questions and a pass mark of 80%. There is a time limit of two hours (more than enough time to answer all questions) and in the unlikely event you go over that time, the examination site will automatically shut down and only those questions answered will be marked. There is a countdown button on the examination paper. Again, I stress that two hours is more than enough time to take the exam, providing you have studied the course material.
The examination is marked automatically on-line immediately after you hit the 'Please Grade me' button on the examination paper. The results are notified to both you (providing you supply an email address on the page displayed when you finish the examination) and The College. We, therefore, have no control over whether you pass or fail and this gives the examination credibility.
Due to the nature of the final examination, there are no practice or mock examinations. The final examination is straight forward and is accessed through a user name and password that is given to you on application.
After the three month minimum study period, you can ask to take final examination by sending an email to the College (an up-to-date contact link is on the first page at http://www.therobertshieldscollege.com - due to excessive spamming, some email addresses have to be closed, but there is always a valid link on that page).
You MUST include in the BODY of your email requesting to take the examination the following details to enable verification before sending you the exam details:
Please Note: In all cases, the taking of the examination is at the discretion of the Principal of The Robert Shields College. Every effort will be taken to help you take the examination and pass it, but on some very rare occasions, it is necessary to refuse an examination attempt. This is normally because of an extremely extended time being taken between purchase and the examination, such as two or even, as has happened, seven years.
Public Liability Insurance is available for U.K. residents at a low cost.
Please note the following web site: http://www.towergateprofessionalrisks.co.uk/Default.aspx?page=31 for further details. Note: I have absolutely no connection with the insurance company and only give a link to their services as I have heard good things about them and they are reasonably priced.
Unfortunately, it is very difficult to arrange insurance for overseas graduates and it has to be left up to you to arrange your own insurance. A search of the Internet for 'Public Liability Insurance' will produce web sites that may be suitable for your area and country. We would be very grateful for any information you may have in this respect for inclusion on our web site.
Note: Taking the Diploma Examination is at the discretion of the Principal of the College. Studying this course does not give an automatic right to sit the examination, but under normal circumstances, there will be no problem providing you are a legitimate student who has paid for the course in full. This warning is, of course, of no consequence to the genuine student.
This grade of membership is available to suitable practitioners who have completed The Robert Shields College's Certificate Course. Associate Members are entitled to use the initials, A.A.E.P.H. after their names.

"I will at all times
act within the profession of Hypnotherapist in a professional manner and
that should I at any time fail to do so, and by so doing bring The
Association into disrepute, I understand that my membership will be
revoked on a majority decision made by a panel consisting of not less than
three and not more than seven, members of The Association.
