It has been found through extensive research that a student can be apparently overrun on a TR, particularly on confronting drills.
When a student bypasses a major stable win and carries on to meet a time requirement he runs into a grind and goes downhill at that point. This only occurs because it is an invalidation of his belief he has done it.
Therefore time requirements on TRs are canceled. A TR is done to a major stable win. This varies from person to person. It may take minutes to hours to a hundred hours to achieve the major win. Once it is obtained it is not bypassed.
A Supervisor does not pass a student on a TR without consulting that student first. The student will know if he has attained his major stable win. The gains are incredible, they are not slight.
TRs can only be invalidated in two ways.
(1) A false pass.
(2) A false insistence the student hasn't made it.
Both can be meter checked. (1) can be redone. (2) can be rehabbed.
TRs can only fail in five other ways.
(3) Misprogramming — putting a student on or off the course in conflict with other major actions.
(4) A heavy out-rudiments situation before or during the course.
(5) Twin upsets.
(6) An improperly taught TR Course (What is a Course? P/L)
(7) Not attending.
This HCOB in no way eases the tough procedure on TRs. TR0 is still done rough, no blink, no red eyes, fidgeting — nothing added to just being there. TRs are tough and results are not compromised by "softening" TRs or doing anything else but being tough where they are concerned.
Expect the toughest, most rewarding course ever.
