Company History
Houston Institute of Hypnosis was established in 2006 by Mr. Jeffrey Martin. Mr. Martin is a
Certified Hypnotist who has successfully operated a hypnosis center within the Houston area for
over six years. His educational accomplishments include extensive and specialized training with
The PATH Foundation and The National Federation of Neuro Linguistic Psychology (NLP). In
addition, Mr. Martin has received certifications from The National Guild of Hypnotists and The
PATH Foundation. Through his close association with the IHTI, the Houston Institute of
Hypnosis is able to offer a comprehensive hypnosis training program designed to impart the
highest ethical and professional standards.
Never before in the history of the hypnotism business has a concept like the curriculum of
IHTI been offered to our professional community. Our team has amassed literally hundreds of
years and thousands of client hours of experience in the highly paid field of hypnotism.
Experience is a good teacher. Our marketing and business-building courses are the best in the
business. This fact opens the door to real business opportunity. IHTI is an association whose
members have all run successful hypnotism practices in the United States and abroad.
Although the concept of the IHTI association is at the pinnacle of new thinking in the field of
hypnotism, our members are an exemplary group of long-standing and respected hypnotists. All
IHTI schools are owned independently. Each school is required to meet the high standards of
IHTI. An operational hypnosis practice is required at each IHTI school.
Since IHTI requires that each school to have its own clinic treating live clients in the real
world, student training occurs with actual clients, not other students. Once qualified, students
practice their skills with clients who have real needs under the supervision of an experienced
hypnosis trainer. Unfortunately, most hypnosis training only allows practice on fellow students
giving an artificial experience to the student. International Hypnotism Training Institutes
Professional Hypnotist Program provides each graduate with a toolbox of knowledge and skill
that can only be acquired in a real clinical environment.

Educational Philosophy
Houston Institute of Hypnotism and International Hypnotism Training Institutes (IHTI)
subscribe to the goal of providing each student with a positive training experience by certified
instructors in an encouraging educational setting. Our goal is to allow each student the
opportunity to demonstrate proficiency in all aspects of the program. Each teacher or staff
member is committed to ensuring the successful completion of the program by each individual
student. IHTI and Houston Institute of Hypnosis are committed to:
    1. Providing each student with the opportunity to work within real life circumstances in all
       aspects of running a successful business in the field of hypnotism. An ad campaign once
       said, “Nothing beats the real thing, baby.” Houston Institute of Hypnosis and IHTI
       believe that in order to be competent, a certified hypnotist must have real life experience
       during training.
    2. Imparting specific values, beliefs, and professional maturity so that each hypnotist trained
       through our program possesses the character needed to be an ethical ambassador of our
       profession.
    3. Setting high boundaries by modeling the professional behavior necessary for each
       student’s success.
    4. Scheduling trainer time and allocating office space to guarantee each trainee receives
       direct feedback from his or her certified instructor.
    5. Structuring a step-by-step program including progressive experience analyzing real cases
       within a genuine hypnosis practice.
Houston Institute of Hypnosis and IHTI share a common goal with the student. That goal is
student success as a professional hypnotist. The true measure of our school’s success can only
be demonstrated through the success of our graduates.

Grading Policy
Grades will be provided to students at the half-way point and at the end of each subject in the
course. Per IHTI guidelines, Houston Institute of Hypnosis uses average grade points as they
accumulate through each section of study to assess student performance. A percentage grade
will be provided for written reports, tests, and live performance of technique. Grade percentage
will then be translated into grade point for comparative performance evaluation. In the event that
a student must retake a course of study, the most current test grade or course grade will be
utilized.
Consistent with IHTI standards, Houston Institute of Hypnosis is committed to direct
supervision, one trainer per 10 students is the maximum class size allowed.
Grades will be determined using the following scale:
           90% - 100% performance of skills = A          (4 Grade Points)
           80% - 89% performance of skills = B           (3 Grade Points)
           70% - 79% performance of skills = C           (2 Grade Points)
           60% - 69% performance of skills = D           (1 Grade Point)
            0% - 59% performance of skills = F           (0 Grade Points)

Satisfactory Progress
     a. In order to maintain satisfactory progress in the Professional Hypnotist Program students
     must maintain a 2.0 Grade Point Average.
     b. Each student’s progress will be evaluated at the mid-point and upon completion of each
     subject. Grade reports will include analysis of the student’s progress toward completion of
     the program.
     c. Students making unsatisfactory progress for the program at the end of a progress
     evaluation period or who achieve less than a 1.5 GPA in any given subject will be placed on
     academic probation for the next progress evaluation period. If the student on academic
     probation achieves satisfactory progress for the subsequent progress evaluation period, but
     does not achieve the required grades to meet overall satisfactory progress for the program, the
     student may be continued on academic probation for one more progress evaluation period.
     d. If a student on academic probation fails to achieve satisfactory progress for the first
     probationary progress evaluation period, the student's enrollment will be terminated.
        The enrollment of a student who fails to achieve overall satisfactory progress for the
        program at the end of two successive probationary progress evaluation periods will be
        terminated.
        When a student is placed on academic probation, the Director or Director of Education
        will counsel the student prior to the student returning to class. The date, action taken, and
        terms of probation will be clearly annotated in the student's permanent file.
     e. In accordance with Title 40, Texas Administrative Code, Section 807.171-175, Houston
     Institute of Hypnosis may allow a student whose enrollment was terminated for
     unsatisfactory progress to reenroll after a period of time equal to the length of the progress
     period the student was in at the time of termination. Such reenrollment does not circumvent
     the approved refund policy.
     f. Grades for a given subject are due no later than the Wednesday directly following the
     corresponding final day of class for that subject. Grade reports will be mailed to the address
     provided by the student upon registration the Friday of the week following the final day of
     class.
     g. Under Texas Education Code, Section 132.061(f) a student who is obligated for the full
     tuition may request a grade of "incomplete" if the student withdraws for an appropriate
     reason unrelated to the student's academic status. Therefore, if a student withdraws from the
     program for satisfactory reasons (i.e. illness, death in family, military service, etc.), the
     student is allowed to file for an incomplete. This will allow the student to return to finish the
     program within 12 months from the withdrawal date. Classes withdrawn from will be graded
     as incomplete, and upon return to classes, the student may reenroll in these classes at no
     additional cost of tuition.
     Students may repeat a subject in the program at any time. The cost associated with repeating
     a subject is the single subject price of that subject as reflected in catalog supplement.
     Students requiring remedial work will be offered the opportunity of doing so between 9:00
     A.M. – 8:00 P.M each Tuesday while enrolled in the program.
