A major reason for any failures in the auditing of Pre-OTs is that the auditor was too slow and flubbed commands. The Pre-OT in session normally moves much faster than a lower grade PC. The auditor has to be about five times faster and must know his auditing commands and technical procedures without any slightest flub in application in order to keep up with the Pre-OT and not distract him from session.
In the early stages of the development of Standard Dianetics it was found that a small number of PCs did not want to be audited. Further investigation revealed that each of these were in fact Pre-OTs and each had just had a session that was failed to some degree. With the recent breakthrough in auditor training and the development of command drills (HCOBs 16 and 17 July 1569) there is now no difficulty in auditing fast OT level PCs, there are no failed sessions, and there have been no further instances of Pre-OTs not wanting further auditing.
It is essential at all training levels that the exact commands and procedures be properly duplicated and the auditing on a doll and bull-baited session training drills be well emphasized, thoroughly drilled and the student not be graduated until the Supervisor and Examiner are certain that the student would never forget, fumble, or give an incorrect command or use incorrect procedure despite any distraction and could easily keep up with the PC no matter how fast the PC, at the same time maintaining excellent TRs, adequate session admin, and competent meter handling.
We are now in the era of 100% auditing success and 100% auditor training. If sessions are flubbed the Tech was not applied or there were flagrant auditor errors. The auditor is handled per HCOB 16 July 1969 and then you have the standard invariable 100%.
