LRH has stated that 50% of your gains are achieved through becoming trained as an auditor. Your progress as a PC and then as a Pre-OT is vastly increased once you have gained Knowledge of the Tech as a trained auditor.
This is as true today as it was in the fifties and sixties and will be just as true tomorrow. Take the analogy of driving a motorcar. Most people can drive a car, but when it breaks down not so many can fix it! This is so true in life and livingness.
An individual with not much in the way of Scientology Training, whatever their Case Level, will hit rough situations in life from time to time, and the wheels will come off (so to speak). However, if you are a well-trained Auditor and know your Tech you are not likely to become the adverse effect of the situation.
…So therefore, an auditor who is not trained in the basics of Scientology is somebody who has no methodology. And you can absolutely count on the fact that as the decades march along, Scientology would go exactly the same route of the Spanish Inquisition.
And any Central Organization or group of Scientologists anywhere in the world will move directly and immediately over into the same frame of mind with regard to pcs and the society and their job and everything else, if they themselves do not know that they have basic tools that make people talk. It is so simple.
……Now, Scientology is the first track area that has ever been which could form a mores which did not result in destruction. But it can only do this if Scientologists know their business. It would inevitably sicken and die the moment that nobody could make anybody talk. Then they could only make people guilty.

And as LRH says … “as the decades march along”… it is so important for those who have experienced the wins of training to see that there are enough TRAINED Scientologists moving into the future. No one is too old (in body) or too young to not ensure that, along with getting case gain, they vigorously pursue their training route.
“A professional Scientologist is one who expertly uses Scientology on any area or level of the society. ….
A trained Scientologist is not a doctor. He is someone with special knowledge in the handling of life. …..
The factories, the marts of trade, the homes, the neighborhoods, these are the places we want trained Scientologists. … get on the active lines of the world and make your presence felt. …
It takes tough Academy training to make a Scientologist, so don’t go at it half armed. …
What do we expect of you? To become the best Scientologist that can be, and to get on the comm lines of the world and bring a big win where it counts. ….
Scientology is the only game on earth where everybody wins.
So let’s help the world win.”

Why it’s vital to be trained in the subject of Scientology
“You’re not enough auditors. You just aren’t enough auditors, that’s all. There — there just aren’t enough.
“We’re not against a quantitative proposition here particularly, but when I say ‘auditor’, I don’t mean somebody who merely audits. You have to combine in your repertoire the ability to train auditors and then you’re enough; then you become enough auditors, don’t you see?
“I know I myself at times have felt rather muscular — mentally muscular – and have stood up baring my breast to the tirades and freakeries of fate and fortune and have said, ‘Well, that is enough. Just — I could do this all by myself, you know, just standing on my head, you know? No help at all. I’d just do it all by myself. That’s easy, you know?’ I just felt tough that day, you know? And before noon I didn’t feel so tough.”
LRH, “Training: Duplication”, 24 Jan 62, from “The Study Tapes” transcripts pages 155-156
“And I believe that the freedom of the material which we know and understand is guaranteed only by a lightness of organization, a maximum of people, good training and good, reliable, sound relay of information. And if we can do these things, we will win.

For the final say on the subject of Training, in this Post, is this VITAL point …
“Most Scientologists have as their only nightmare, kicking off and not being able to remember Scientology. That would be rough.…. But I can assure you that people, when they back out of their heads, when they’ve been trained, they don’t forget it.”
