Class VIII Course Lectures
September -- October 1968, 19 lectures.
Ron begins the Class VIII Course with the introduction of Standard Tech, by which was meant the standard rendition of every auditing basic resulting in 100% results on every case. This represented a significant departure from a central principle of the Saint Hill Special Briefing Course, during which Ron said over and over, "Auditing is what you can get away with." On Class VIII, that datum was no more. The vast understanding gained on the SHSBC, however, was a necessary prerequisite to the judgment learned on Class VIII, for judgment cannot exist without understanding.
