Membership Information


The National Board of Professional and Ethical Standards, its directors, and its members are all part of an organization whose mission is to consistently maintain the highest standards of quality, service and Hypnotherapeutic excellence. As such, certain qualifications need to be met.

We here at the board strongly encourage you to join and support this great institute.Click Here For Membership Application or Renewal



You must have successfully completed an approved course and be able to provide a copy of a current certificate. This certificate must be from a National or International school or Board. However, local training or certifications are not acceptable. Most states and any legitimate Board will not accept this type of training.

Most important, you must not have been convicted of a felony or have served any jail time. We will not accept, without exceptions, any registered sex offenders for membership or for certification. We are the only board to screen its members, thus maintaining our organization's high standards and ensuring that our profession is one for all to enjoy. These high standards must be maintained for two reasons: 1) to maintain the public's positive perception of Hypnosis and 2) to comply with new laws, as the states are now starting to regulate Hypnosis.

Our Board


This International Board was established with one goal in mind: to bring Hypnosis and NLP to a higher level than ever before, to set and maintain a high level of standards internationally and to be the number one organization for competent and professional Hypnotists/Hypnotherapists from around the world. Our Directors consist of professional Hypnotherapists, including MD's, Psychologists, Doctors and Teachers of Hypnotherapy from the U.S. and abroad as well as CEOs of other hypnosis organizations. Your membership with us now automatically includes membership with The Professional Board of Hypnotherapy and The British Association of Therapeutical Hypnotists, the oldest hypnosis organization in the world, The Australian and Spanish Hypnotherapy Associations, the UK Psychological Society and The American Board of Hypnotherapy, under Tad James as well. No other organization offers 7 memberships all included for the price of one

We are the only board that totally supports its members with complete information and ideas for improvement. The board offers Professional Board Certification and Teaching Credentials. Our materials are the best available and at the most affordable prices offered anywhere. We are the only organization for Hypnosis and Hypnotherapy that maintains these high standards. Our board will only accept individuals who prove to be qualified for membership in this field with no criminal record.

We investigate any and all complaints of wrong doing of any member and take whatever appropriate action may be deemed necessary. Consequently, we will always maintain the highest level of professional standards.

We have been a member in good standing with the Better Business Councils of Central Florida for 14 years. (Now known as Better Business Inc.) We are also a member of the American Association for Higher Education, located in Washington DC., members of  The World Wide Web Chamber Of Commerce, The Professional Board of Hypnotherapy, Inc., The International Distance Educator's Association, The Florida Distance Learning Association, The United States Distance Learning Association, The Professional Board of Education, The British Association of Therapeutical Hypnotists, The UK Psychological Society and Pebblehills University.

When you have successfully completed any one of our courses, you will automatically receive a six month membership in our board. We then require 8 hours of continuing education units per year in order for you to maintain your status. Nevertheless, when you are a member of our organization, it will mean added prestige, respect, and credibility to your Hypnosis practice.

Included with Investment


There is no previous educational experience required to take these courses. The courses include a complete kit containing all that a student needs to complete the courses. Upon completion of the courses you will be certified. In addition there is ongoing support from the board and a starter package including business forms and support materials for running a successful business. A toll free number (1-888-357-8400) is included that allows you unlimited  access to a Doctor of Clinical Hypnotherapy and a Ph.D. to provide you with answers to any questions you may have either during the courses or at anytime in the future. Office hours are 9 am to 9 pm EST 365 days a year.

An optional no-cost internship is also available. The National Board of Professional and Ethical Standards is the first board to offer such an internship. We suggest that you take this training whenever it is possible for you to do so. It can be taken at any one of our centers and at anytime in the future. Upon successful completion of the internship, the student will then become board certified. Members are also offered an optional fellowship after two years. Becoming a fellow of the board provides the added prestige and recognition that comes with this designation.

Complete Satisfaction Guaranteed


Combined with our unequalled support services  we are positive that these practical courses will be easy to learn, even life-changing. Therefore, if within 10 days (20 days international) you're not completely satisfied for any reason you can return the course materials for a complete "no-questions asked" refund (minus a normal charge for shipping and handling).

We are breaking new ground again with the best guarantee in the business. 
We now offer a 3-year guarantee on all audio and video products we sell. If during the first 3 years from the original date of purchase any audio or video product we sell shall be proven to be defective (excluding commercial use) we will at our option and expense replace or refund the cost of said item or items. There will be no additional charge whatsoever to the customer.

100% Quality Assurance

We are so confident that we offer the very best program available anywhere i.e.: support, prices and guarantee, we make this pledge:

If you find within 6 months from your purchase a better price, better support and a better guarantee,* we will refund to you (upon proof) the entire cost you paid for our courses.  *All three courses must be similar. Return instructions.
