SCIENTOLOGY Online Courses

On this course you will learn:

>> The cause of difficulties, uncertainties and failures at work and in life.

>> Why you get tired from handling people all day and what you can do about it.

>> Steps you can take to overcome exhaustion and regain your enthusiasm for work. SCIENTOLOGY ONLINE COURSES


- 3.7 billion people use the Internet - more than half of the world's population.

- There are 19 free Scientology Online Courses available in 17 language at

- Each week, online course supervisors grade nearly 4,000 course lessons.

- Every hour, 24 hours a day, more than 13 people complete an online lesson.


IAS-sponsored Internet ads help direct millions of people from around the world to the Scientology website. There they can enroll on any one of the 19 free Online Courses.
Online supervisors grade the lessons and ensure that students understand and can apply what they learn. Here are some recent success stories from those who have completed these courses and successfully applied Scientology fundamentals to improve their lives:

"The Targets and Goals course was ridiculously good. I was very impressed that this course included a real-life supervisor who graded my assignments and offered helpful advice.
"If you'd asked me a couple weeks ago whether I thought a free online class would produce new realizations and positive changes in my life and business, I'd have been highly sceptical. But this class did that in a huge way!
"First, and most importantly, despite having read numerous books on getting organized and making several attempts to put a strategic plan in place over the seven years I've been in business, this is the only book/course I've walked away from WITH A REAL-LIFE STRATEGIC PLAN and a BATTLE PLAN for next week. Seriously! What more could I ask for? I'd have had to pay a consultant thousands of dollars to help me produce what this course did for free.
"Second, while working on this course, I saw some personal shortcomings of mine come to light in a way they haven't previously. Yes, I suspected they were there, but I largely ignored them, hoping they'd go away.
"For reference, I'm a 40-year-old attorney who owns his own firm. I am not a Scientologist, and only visited an Org for the first time two weeks ago. I hope people check it out for themselves. Scientology seems to have a heck of a lot to offer!
"I can't wait to take more free online courses from the Scientology Handbook!" -C.S., United States


"This course turned out to be both the best and the most difficult for me at the same time, because it was difficult for me to confront people face to face. The bullbaiting exercise was difficult, but the results are impressive! My confront has developed very much. Now I have become calmer in the presence of strangers. I feel more open and less constrained, and it is easier for me to enter into communications, which immediately improved my quality of life. I discovered the artistry that I once suppressed. Now, when I speak in public, I say things confidently and with intention, which makes my speeches more convincing and lively. And I'm more relaxed. Communication is an invaluable skill for life and I'm glad that I now have it on a new level!"-I.G., Estonia


"Wow, what can I say?! This is my first course and it was definitely a good one. I've learned, as the title suggests, the cause of suppression. I understand what sort of people cause suppression and have been able to see this in the real world. I've come to understand that some people near me have antisocial characteristics and I've been given this skill to deal with them. This course has helped me deeply and personally as I realized I have been suppressed. I now know how to tell if someone is under suppression and the steps in order to help them locate the SP and remove it from their lives.
"Thanks to my supervisors. I'll be continuing my other courses and know I'll definitely need your help!"-R.D., United Kingdom

Results such as these are made possible by the continued support of IAS members. It is one of the vital programs funded by IAS grants. Now is the time for every member to advance to their next IAS status.

To Whom it May Concern:

The intention of this letter is to express a certain amount of personal gratitude for the information which was made available to me by way two pamphlets your organization has produced: the first being "How to Resolve Conflict", and the second "Honesty and Integrity". I've found the lessons within these booklets to be of great help in mine and my partner's current relationship. You see, we were trudging through what, at times, was a jarring domestic turbulence; however, now we seem to have made a total turn around. It's undeniable to me how this change is so linked to our newly developed awareness to that of "Third Parties", and the overt/withhold dynamics of our dishonesty with one another. But please, allow me to explain.

My partner and I have dated for about two years, and of that time, very much of it has been spent arguing and ill at rest. We have broken up and gotten back together a number of times, and it was during this most recent split, near beyond the point of no return, that an inmate representative of your organization's teachings, one Mr. W. Goehler, approached me and offered to help. At first I thought that he would dish out the same worthless advise which people tend to throw around impotent carelessness. I was though quite surprised when Mr. Goehler offered me insightful knowledge concerning my experiences, a clarity which drove into the heart of my confusion and tore from me an increment of my ignorance.

Mr. Goehler first shared with me "How to Resolve Conflicts", and helped me to identify where the lurking third parties were in my domestic situation. Then, addressing the distance and secrecy between my partner and I, Mr. Goehler introduced "Honesty and Integrity". I went on to itemize my overts and withholdings, realizing soon the destructive nature of my justification. I learned of my innate desire to be right, and how for the sake of insulating my mistakes, I would quickly alter truth, taking away its exactness. This was a very enlightening revelation, one which I quickly shared with my partner.

We are so much closer now, and I feel like the weight of my worries has been dramatically lessened. Had it not been for your organization's publication, and the insightful efforts made by Mr. Goehler, I still would, no doubt, be sulking through the stupidity of my former perceptions; or rather, a lack there of. The thanks with which I owe you is beyond measure, and what you and Mr. Goehler have given to me is truly wonderful.

And so it goes: There are two ways of spreading light: To be the candle - or the mirror that reflects it.
Dare to light a candle instead of cursing the darkness!

For the Love of Truth,
Noblesse Oblige
