Student Comments - Forensic Investigative Courses

Here are some of the comments of people who have taken the training course have had to say:

Hi, my name is Jim Fallon, and I would like to tell you about the National Board.

I recently enrolled in the forensic hypnosis course with the National Board.Upon doing research prior to enrolling, I checked out other training establishments. No other school offered the guarantee and the quality of service and excellent materials and the cost-effective price, as did the National Board. In addition, they provide 7 day a week phone support 12 hours a day, and their staff will do above and beyond to make sure their students are satisfied in every and all aspects. I am not an easy person to please. I am very satisfied with my program from the National board. I have never received such personnel attention and care as I receive from the national board. It is better than being in a live classroom.

With the National Board's distance learning, it is just like they are not only your personnel instructor, but also your personnel coach, there for you 12 hours a day, seven days a week. There is no where else that anyone will find a course of instruction that offers so much.

I plan to enroll in additional courses, as they become available from the National Board. Dr. Brady, Tonya and staff are outstanding. There are simply no other programs that can even compare with the outstanding programs that the National Board offers. Their material is current and state of the art, and has all the latest cutting edge information. Make your future brighter by enrolling with the National Board.

Jim Fallon, Certified Hypnotherapist ABH, -IL 2/18/03

Encouraged by other home study courses I have taken from the National Board of Professional and Ethical Standards, I could not wait to get the material for the Forensic Hypnosis Investigator Course. Once again I was very pleasantly surprised on how concise, clear, and easy to follow the course was. It made a tough subject easy to learn and gives you the information you need to be a “Pro” right from the start. I highly recommend this course to any Hypnotherapist looking to expand into the field of Forensic Hypnosis. Once again, Dr. Brady and the National Board have delivered another tool to help you succeed.  

Andrew Neblett, CMHt


As a recent graduate I can say with credibility that The National Board of Professional & Ethical Standards knows how to teach!  It is my feeling as a recent graduate that The National Board of Professional & Ethical Standards has your success as its utmost concern.  Having received my Masters certification in hypnosis through this board I can assure you they made sure through proper testing and follow-up calls that I was properly trained and I'm sure they will do the same for you.  When you graduate from The National Board of Professional & Ethical Standards you will have peace of mind knowing not only have you received the very best and most comprehensive training possible, but you are a member of one of the most prestigious organizations in the World!

James Krieser, MHt, Forensic Investigator


I would highly recommend the forensic hypnosis course to any student of hypnosis.  The course studies that you receive are thorough.  When taking the course if I ran into a question it would be answered by just picking up the phone and calling.  I look forward to the "Criminal Profiling" course coming soon!

Dr. Kevin Sample, MHt, PhD  "Windows to the Mind Hypnotherapy Clinic"

f more time is needed to complete course 2 and 3, it will be granted upon a written or verbal request for an extension of up to one year.
