Meaning of Earned Credential Website Badges
We are proud to tell you about the Credential Badging System™ which is exclusive to the 5-PATH® International Association of Hypnosis Professionals (IAHP).
Each one of the badges below can only be shown on the website or printed materials of a 5-PATH® IAHP Member In Good Standing.
These badges are presented by the 5-PATH® IAHP Members to inform others of their credentials. This page explains each Credential Badge.
Please be aware that this is one badge design. Other similar designs may also be available to members and they may choose to use them as well. Those other designs are similar to these but, may vary in color.
5-PATH® IAHP Members who display either of these Credential Badges (above) have completed either the NGH Approved Banyan Hypnosis / Hypnotherapy Certification Super Course with both 5-PATH® and 7th Path Self-Hypnosis® Certifications. These courses are of at least 100 hours in length and is considered by many to be the best hypnosis certification program in the world today.
It is also possible that 5-PATH® IAHP Members displaying these badges may have additional certification through another program and then updated and expanded that training by either completing our 70 hour Advanced Hypnosis / Hypnotherapy Certification Program, or through our distance learning programs. In either case, these hypnosis professionals are fully certified in the 5-PATH® hypnosis / hypnotherapy system.
5-PATH® IAHP Members who display this Credential Badge are experienced hypnotists / hypnotherapists who have undergone extensive training and examination which resulted in becoming certified and licensed to teach the 5-PATH® IAHP Certification Courses. These courses include: our 100 hour NGH Approved Banyan Hypnosis / Hypnotherapy Certification Super Course with both 5-PATH® and 7th Path Self-Hypnosis® Certification Course and the 70 hour Advanced Hypnosis / Hypnotherapy Certification Program, also with 5-PATH® and 7th Path Self-Hypnosis® Certification.
5-PATH® IAHP Members who display these Credential Badges have received the training and have been tested on the same level as those displaying all of the badges above. They are Certified Hypnotists / Hypnotherapists. They are fully trained and certified to teach our courses. In addition to that, they have achieved Accreditation status for themselves as instructors and also for their schools.
5-PATH® IAHP Professional Accreditation is the highest standard reached by 5-PATH® IAHP Certified Professional Hypnosis Instructors (CPHIs). All our CPHIs have undergone extensive training and testing to enable them to teach our programs, but those who have reached the level of becoming Professionally Accredited with our organization have demonstrated exemplary skills in teaching and providing support for their grads and the members of this organization. Accredited Instructors (A+CPHI) go through an accreditation process. To qualify for the accreditation process, they must have met the following criteria:
- Experienced Instructors
- Highest Praise from Student Evaluations
- Met or Surpassed All State Requirements to Teach Hypnosis / Hypnotherapy
- Met or Surpassed All National Guild of Hypnotists Requirements
- Met or Surpassed 5-PATH® IAHP Teaching Standards (by Demonstration of Skills)
- History of Excellent Support of Graduates and 5-PATH® IAHP Membership
- Excellent Hypnosis / Hypnotherapy Skills Demonstrated in Actual Practice
- Demonstrated Leadership Ability In the Profession of Hypnotism / Hypnotherapy
Then the accreditation involves being approved by the Accreditation Board. This will include reviewing all the information above along with video recordings of the instructor teaching key parts of the course.
When you select a 5-PATH® IAHP Professionally Accredited, Certified Professional Hypnosis / Hypnotherapy Instructor (A+CPHI), you can be assured that this is an instructor who is experienced in using what he or she teaches, as well has being a skilled and qualified hypnosis / hypnotherapy instructor who has demonstrated the highest skill levels and teaching ability in the profession.
