Warning: These materials are only to be read and used by students ready for
the Level. To qualify you have to have attested Clear and done Advanced Level 1,
Pre-OT One. The student should also be a trained Solo-auditor.
Ron Hubbard's instructions on how to audit Pre-OT II were never written up in one comprehensive text. Instead they had to be collected by instructors from taped lectures and especially from instructions on how to run the so-called Clearing Course Materials with some notes. Here, for the first time, is an accurate manual in how to specifically audit Pre-OT II. It is an updated presentation of Mr. Hubbard's instructions from 1966-67. It is 100% compatible with what is called Standard OT II Instructions.
An Account of Ron Hubbard's Original OT Two
Note: You use a piece of paper to cover the Items on your Platen not yet run. When an Item is flat, you move your paper down one line and begin to run the new Item.
The Reason for Admin
It is important to keep a written record of each session. It helps the student's self-discipline and work ethics and at the same time this record is on a regular basis inspected by a Case Supervisor, who will give the student further advice and directions.
One thing that makes it important in particular here on Pre-OT II is the fact that auditing Items out of sequence or without proper discharge can lead to serious by-passed charge and even illness.
There are two different reports kept during session. There is a normal Auditor's report with worksheets. The Solo-auditor records start and end of session, flying rudiments, any use of List 7 or special handlings of Items on this report. It shows how the Solo-auditor is doing, thoughts and cognitions. It shows what he is doing and when. You should already know all about this type of report from the Solo Auditors Course.
Items Worksheets (Reads Sheets)
The other type of report is the Items Worksheet (or Reads sheet). It simply contains a record of the running of each Item as it is taken from the Platen, run with Repeater Technique and what reads each Item gave. The Items Worksheet is done on a large piece of paper, such as legal format. At the top the Solo-auditor writes his name and when the worksheet was started. Both sides of the paper is used.
When auditing from a Platen the Solo-auditor first writes which Platen is used. If more than one worksheet is needed to get through the Platen consecutive worksheets are called A, B, C, etc. The Solo-auditor then uses the numbering on the Platen, or any understandable abbreviation, to show which Item he is auditing.
The Item worksheets are all kept paper-clipped together in sequence, and are pulled forward session to session. They are not kept behind the regular worksheets of the individual sessions as they are used as the running record of the whole Level.
When Solo-auditing the Pre-OT simply marks the reads he gets while running Item after Item. When an Item is flat he leaves several lines open and makes a new entry with the next Item.
The open lines are left because the routine often requires that the Solo-auditor goes several Items back to get off additional charge (reads). When using this system it is however easy to see all reads produced by each Item without having to add up different columns.
|Solo-auditor: name Date|
|Platen: LP GPM (continued) Worksheet 13C|
|Item 1: (date) LF LF F F F F F F F F F F F F sF sF|
|Item 2: LFBD (3.3-3.1) LF LF F F F F F F F F F sF sF|
In the case the whole Level at a later date is being rechecked or rerun the Solo-auditor would still start out with the existing Items Worksheets but may soon run out of space. It should be clearly marked on the original worksheets where the Solo-auditor continued the report. One solution to this would be to make up an additional worksheet attached to the original one (if such a later additional worksheet was in a different color paper and kept just behind the original one it would be hard to miss). With dates and Items clearly marked it is still possible to trace back the chronology and amount of charge handled for each Item. Other systems can be worked out. The point being, as long as the C/S can follow what happened to the running of an Item over time - including reruns - from just reading on through the worksheets the report is adequate.
Here are some advice on how Ron Hubbard wanted his Solo-auditors to do admin:
Handling Pairs of Items: "One calls the Item and marks its reads until one no longer gets reads. Then one calls the next Item and marks its reads, until it no longer reads. Then one can call the first Item of the Pair again and second Item, calling them as a Pair (1,2,1,2) until they no longer read.
"The reads obtained on an Item by calling a Pair are put under the appropriate Item number.
"All the reads for any one Item are recorded in the same place on the worksheet regardless of when the Item is called. (Such as calling as a Pair or in rerunning). Space should be left after each Item so that reads can be added when calling the Pair or in the case of having to go back and get more charge off an Item.
"Whenever you move the Tone Arm down mark on your worksheet (BD -) and put the new TA position in the Blank Space, e. g. (BD - 3.0).
"If an Item does not read the moment it is called, then you have left the Item just before it charged. So call the earlier Item again and get the read or reads off it, making sure you donít go into a later Run. Then call the Item that didnít read the first time and you will find it instantly reads.

Admin, checking earlier run Items.
"When you leave an Item to go back to a previous one, put a / (slash) on the Item you leave and a - (hyphen) at the Item you go back to. If you go back more than one Item, put a / (slash) for as many Items as you go back. I. e. if you go back three Items, you put /// (3 slashes) on the Item left and - (hyphen) on each Item gone back over. Each Item must be called in turn up to the place where you went back from."
