“Speedup of HDCs, Class IV, VI, VII, VIII and "HGC Auditor" courses at all orgs, AOs (and SHs) would encourage more students. My time for it is 3 weeks. This was up to 5 and even 11 to 13 weeks at once by illegal checksheet increases.

… The Class VIII Course is 3 weeks long. Period.

… Fast training gets students in. Slow training messes up the whole field and denies enrollments.”

Fast Courses
(Tech Vol. IX, p. 213)

“Indiscriminately adding materials to course checksheets has been largely responsible for extending training time. This practice caused the Classs VIII Course, a 3-week course in 1968, to take up to 8 months to do in 1970.”

“Earlier this year I evaluated this auditor shortage scene. The BASIC WHY of all this is:

YOU HAVE HAD CHECKSHEETS WHICH WERE FAR TOO LONG.

… We’ve had the datum for some time that a student too long on the runway is going to lose the spark and zeal he started out with.”

The End of Endless Training
(OEC Vol. 4, p. 419)

“Courses should be fast, auditing drawn out. This is the exact reverse of what has been happening. Slow courses and fast auditing destroy the subjects of Dianetics and Scientology.”
