THE RPF TECHNICAL PROGRAM
HCOB 20 June 71 C/S Series 47 THE SUPREME TEST OF A C/S
F0 3434RE-2 RPF Series 2 RPF TARGET
This is the Rehabilitation Project Force Technical Program. It has been written in strict accordance with the LRH references on tech handlings for the RPF.
The RPF provides the means by which those who have been destructive on post can fully redeem themselves, thus regain their self-esteem as productive and contributing Sea Org members, this technical program has been compiled to facilitate exactly that.
Upon transfer to the RPF, one handles at once any ethics or PTS conditions and then his program is directed toward co-auditing where he receives a full cleanup of overts, withholds and evil purposes which underlie such poor conduct, all to be done while the person contributes on deck work so as not to go further out-exchange with the group.
Each person in the RPF is programmed strictly against this issue and in full alignment with the C/S Series.
The steps of this technical program are also laid out in a checklist attached to this issue. This checklist is placed in front of the RPF member’s case folder so that the co-auditor and C/S can sign off and attest that each step has been completed.
The RPF member’s training is programmed against the basic lineup of actions listed below under “AUDITING.” This consists of getting through his conditions and then rapidly studying and drilling what he is going to audit, on a “read it, drill it, do it” basis. The RPF member does the specific “read it, do it, drill it” for the immediate auditing actions that his twin is to receive, and then audits his twin on that.
For further auditing actions required by the RPF member’s twin, the RPF member would train on the corresponding “read it, drill it, do it” for that action.
Such training allows RPF members to rapidly co-audit their way to redemption.
0. INTRODUCTORY STEP
As the first step upon entering the RPF, the person reads all RPF Series Flag Orders to gain a full understanding of the purpose, rules and regulations of the RPF program. He then executes certain waivers to attest that he wants to do the RPF program, understands the discipline required and is participating on his own volition.
1. CONDITIONAL: PTS HANDLING
If PTS the situation gets fully handled. This is to be done exactly per HCOB 31 Dec 1978RB OUTLINE OF PTS HANDLING. The person is not to be put on any study actions or auditing actions other than those which handle PTSness, until such time as the PTS situation is handled.

2. ETHICS CONDITIONS
Ethics conditions are done up to Liability in relation to the overall activity from which the person was assigned to the RPF. The RPF members should work through these conditions., studying any applicable ethics references as needed in order to achieve a full result. While in the RPF, he would of course apply the full array of conditions formulas based on his stats and production. (Ref: HCO PL 12 July 1980R, THE BASICS OF ETHICS)
1. CONDITIONAL: AUDITED PTS HANDLINGS
If PTS, any audited actions needed to handle PTSness must be done. (To be determine by the C/S.)
This step is vital and must not be skimped or glossed over on any RPF member. (Ref: HCOB 31 Dec 1978RB II, OUTLINE OF PTS HANDLING) Note: A case which needs a full PTS Rundown is programmed according to HCOB 9 Dec 1971RE, PTS RUNDOWN, AUDITED.
2. CONDITIONAL: DRUG HANDLING
For those with a heavy drug history, it may be necessary to run or flatten a drug handling action before proceeding with the False Purpose Rundown. Drugs impair a person’s ability to confront his case, and persons who have been on drugs do not make case gain until the drugs are handled. (To be determined by the C/S.) (Refs: HCOB 31 March 1981R, “HEAVY DRUG HISTORY” DEFINED and HCOB 11 June 1984, C/Sing THE FALSE PURPOSE RUNDOWN)
3. FALSE PURPOSE RUNDOWN AUDITING
A) C/S PREPARED FPRD FORM ON THE SUBJECT OR AREA OF THE PERSON’S ASSIGNMENT TO THE RPF OR THE APPLICABLE FPRD FORM.
Includes direct evil purpose questions as well as overt questions to address the reason the person was RPFed.
For example, a Sea Org member who was assigned to the RPF for destructive actions as a cook is to be programmed to receive an FPRD form written expressly to address that area.
B) CONDITIONAL: TRUTH RUNDOWN
If it is found that the RPF member has any involvement in spreading black PR, he receives the Truth Rundown.
The Truth Rundown utilizes the precise technology of the False Purpose Rundown to get the underlying causes of why individuals originate or pick up and spread black PR. It is invaluable in handling individuals who have spread destructive black PR—and those who themselves originated the black PR—about their own group or its leaders, activities, products or purposes.
Any and all points of black PR that were reportedly originated or spread by the individual are taken up and run. The Truth Rundown Confessional is also done, as needed, per its instructions. (Ref: HCOB 13 Oct 91R I, Truth Rundown Series 1R, THE TRUTH RUNDOWN)
C) FIRST DYNAMIC FPRD
D) SECOND DYNAMIC FPRD
E) THIRD DYNAMIC FPRD
F) FOURTH DYNAMIC FPRD
G) FIFTH DYNAMIC FPRD
H) SIXTH DYNAMIC FPRD
I) SEVENTH DYNAMIC FPRD
FLAG ORDER 3434RE-27R
J) EIGHTH DYNAMIC FPRD
K) CONDITIONAL: IF NEEDED ADDITIONAL FORMS OR TAILORED SEC CHECK QUESTIONS TO ACHIEVE THE FULL EP OF THE RPF PROGRAM.
The FPRD Basic Form is not directed for use on the RPF program as it does not cover a specific dynamic but is a general form.
4. CONDITIONAL: EXPANDED DIANETICS
Full use of Expanded Dianetics is required if the RPF member is below Clear, is R/Sing and is dramatizing the R/Ses.
Setups—per HCOB 23 April 1974RA EXPANDED DIANETICS REQUISITES,
OCA left-hand side handling,
OCA right-hand side handling.
In other words,
“a thorough, workmanlike handling of the pc’s aberrations and contrasurvival intentions, in all aspects handling of the pc’s aberrations and contrasurvival intentions, in all aspects of life and livingness, that truly accomplishes changes for the better in the behavior, outlook, social presence and conduct of the preclear.”—LRH (Ref: HCOB 1 May 1991 XIX, Expanded Dianetics Series 39, C/Sing AND PROGRAMING EXPANDED DIANETICS)
5. CONDITIONAL: Audited NOTs R/S handling
“If a pre-OT staff member is R/Sing and dramatizing the R/Ses and has therefore been put on an RPF, he is required to receive full handling per the special NED Rundown for OTs before graduating that RPF. If he is Clear but not yet OT III, he is to get up to and through OT III as fast as possible so he can receive this special rundown.”—LRH (Ref: HCOB 13 Sept 78II, CLEARS, OTs AND R/Ses)
6. RPF FINAL ASSESSMENT2
With all previous steps of the RPF technical program completed, a final assessment is done to ensure nothing was missed.
The assessment is issued in a separate directive to RPFs. Any reads are taken up and handled at once and the list is reassessed until there are no reads.
This assessment is to be recorded on videotape clearly showing the meter and pc and is sent with the RPF member’s graduation CSW.
7. CONDITIONAL: RE-EDUCATION STEP FOR LIST ONE R/Sers
FO 3434RE-15 RPF Series 15, RE-EDUCATION STEP gives an additional handling for persons coming out of the RPF who were List One R/Sers:
a. A TRs course, such as the Success Through Communication Course
b. A full PR course, such as the PR Series Course
c. The Personal Grooming Course
d. The Sea Org Etiquette Course
e. Read the book How to Win Friends and Influence People by Dale Carnegie3, and do practical exercises on this.
f. Auditing on times he was a nice guy and was successful at it, as follows: Recall a time you were a nice guy and were successful at it.: To F/N, cognition, VGIs, release.
FLAG ORDER 3434RE-27R
It is vital that an RPF member fully completes the formula for the condition of Liability. The work one does in the RPF, such as on the decks, is his production in exchange for what he receives by way of the delivery of the RPF technical program, his food, lodging, etc. It does not complete step 3 of the Liability formula with the org or group he was in prior to the RPF. Therefore, once the RPFer has successfully completed all technical and deck production requirements in the RPF and steps 1 and 2 of the Liability formula, and has received approval to graduate, he is to report to Department 3 of his org where he is to complete his Liability formula.
Only when upgraded to Non-Existence is he a full graduate of the RPF and eligible for posting, full allowance and regular crew study time. By the time the RPF graduate has completed his liability formula in full, HCO is to already have a posting order approved so there is no delay in being routed onto post as a crew member in a condition of Non-Existence.
No attempt has been made here to list any vital repair actions needed by a case to do the steps of this technical program, as these are fully covered in the C/S Series HCOBs and in the course materials for Class V Graduate Auditor and C/S.
The stress is on getting each RPF member through these basic steps as listed in this issue rapidly and thoroughly, and not off onto other actions such as “he must complete the course he was in the middle of when he was assigned to the RPF.”
Although the steps in this technical program are generally done in the order listed above, it may not be used to robotically program the order in which the technical program steps are done on a case. For instance, an RPF member who has both a PTS situation and a very serious situation of unhandled drugs might require a different sequence of the steps of this program than a PTS RPF member who already has his drugs fully handled. The C/S Series must be followed in all cases.
The RPF C/S must bear in mind the purpose of the RPF, and not order unnecessary rundowns or major actions or repairs. One programs an RPF member’s case against this technical program and follows HCOB 20 June 1971, C/S Series 47, THE SUPREME TEST OF A C/S.
“The Supreme Test of an auditor or a C/S is to make auditing go right—by the book.”—LRH

All Sec Checkers
Level II and
SEC CHECKING: NOTE
An auditor doing a Sec Check can run into a phenomenon that goes like this: The pc says to the auditor, “I am in possession of a lot of secret data— therefore, I cannot get off my withholds.” And the auditor buys it and the case fails. Actually, this is in large measure a lie, used to cover actual overts against the group or its VIPs.
When you look at the definition of a real overt as something contrary to the mores of a group, you realize that the withhold one is looking for is a withhold of having committed an actual overt on the group by omit or commit. At best you see that the pc excuse does not wash.
If the auditor were to ask for “overts contrary to the mores of the group and withholds of having done them or omitted actions that by omission caused harm to the group or its people,” one gets around that excuse.
The GO people and many others pull this.
The auditor technically is NOT interested in confidences or overts against a group’s enemies or withholds thereof. He is looking for overts against the group as above and the withholding of having committed them by omit or commit.
If this were made plain to Sec Checkers, the swindle could no longer be pulled by such pcs and the cases would not fail.
A failed case will continue to be one as long as he is committing overts on the thing that is supposed to help him. But, with skilled auditing, this can be handled.
I hope this helps resolve some “failed cases.”

HCO BULLETIN OF 3 SEPTEMBER 19781
DEFINITION OF A ROCK SLAM
The following is the only valid definition of an R/S:
ROCK SLAM: THE CRAZY, IRREGULAR, LEFT-RIGHT SLASHING MOTION OF THE NEEDLE ON THE E-METER DIAL. R/SES REPEAT LEFT AND RIGHT SLASHES UNEVENLY AND SAVAGELY, FASTER THAN THE EYE EASILY FOLLOWS. THE NEEDLE IS FRANTIC. THE WIDTH OF AN R/S DEPENDS LARGELY ON SENSITIVITY SETTING. IT GOES FROM ONE-FOURTH INCH TO WHOLE DIAL. BUT IT SLAMS BACK AND FORTH.
A ROCK SLAM (R/S) MEANS A HIDDEN EVIL INTENTION ON THE SUBJECT OR QUESTION UNDER AUDITING OR DISCUSSION.
VALID R/SES ARE NOT ALWAYS INSTANT READS. AN R/S CAN READ PRIOR OR LATENTLY.
HCOB 5 Dec. 62, 2-12, 3GAXX, 3-21 and ROUTINE 2-10 MODERN ASSESSMENT, is an HCOB composited by others incorrectly and is CANCELLED as it misdefines an R/S as a single slash left or right. It contains the statements: “One or two slashes make an R/S. . . . If it slashed up or down once call it an R/S.” The data is utterly false. By this wrong definition a rocket read could be mistaken for an R/S, or any sudden rise could be mistaken for an R/S. ONE SLASH DOESN’T BEGIN TO BE AN R/S. NOR TWO OR THREE FOR THAT MATTER. THE CORRECT DEFINITION OF AN R/S INCLUDES THAT IT SLASHES SAVAGELY LEFT AND RIGHT.
DEFINITION OF A DIRTY NEEDLE
The following is the only valid definition of a dirty needle:
DIRTY NEEDLE: AN ERRATIC AGITATION OF THE NEEDLE WHICH IS RAGGED, JERKY, TICKING, NOT SWEEPING, AND TENDS TO BE PERSISTENT. IT IS NOT LIMITED IN SIZE.
A DIRTY NEEDLE IS CAUSED BY ONE OF THREE THINGS:
1. THE AUDITOR’S TRs ARE BAD.
2. THE AUDITOR IS BREAKING THE AUDITOR’S CODE.
3. THE PC HAS WITHHOLDS HE DOES NOT WISH KNOWN.
The definitions of a dirty needle as “a small rock slam” and “a smaller edition of the rock slam” in HCOB 13 August AD12, “Rock Slams and Dirty Needles,” are CANCELLED. The definition of a dirty needle as “a minute rock slam” in HCOB 1 August AD12, “Routine 3GA, Goals, Nulling by Mid Ruds,” is CANCELLED.
All definitions which limit the size of a dirty needle to “one quarter of an inch” or “less than one quarter of an inch” are CANCELLED.
A dirty needle is NOT TO BE CONFUSED with an R/S. They are distinctly different reads. You never mistake an R/S if you have ever seen one. A dirty needle is far less frantic.
THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A ROCK SLAM AND A DIRTY NEEDLE IS IN THE CHARACTER OF THE READ. NOT THE SIZE.
Persistent use of “fish and fumble” can sometimes turn a dirty needle into a rock slam. However until it does it is simply a dirty needle.
AUDITORS, C/SES, SUPERVISORS MUST MUST MUST KNOW THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THESE TWO TYPES OF READS COLD.
