The FSO ministers Dianetics and Scientology services from the bottom of the Bridge through to New OT VII, plus certain specialized auditing services only available there.

Here, also, Scientologists participate in training to the level of Class XII, which is the highest auditor classification in Scientology. Auditor training from Class IX and above is available only at the FSO and only to members of the Sea Organization. Only Flag staff may train on the highest levels of Class X to Class XII. Included among Flag staff are the most experienced and highly trained auditors, case supervisors, course supervisors and other training specialists anywhere in the world.

The excitement an auditor feels is often almost equal to that of the parishioner to whom he is ministering. “With each session, the person unfolds spiritually,” said one auditor. “His perceptions reach a level never previously imagined. Aberration just falls away in moments — and it falls away forever, leaving him spiritually free of those restraints for eternity.”

The FSO sets the technical standard in Scientology and enjoys a reputation for perfection. Flag thus serves an important role in the Scientology religion by training and interning ministerial staff from all lower churches and missions. Churches and missions from around the world send their technical staff to be trained to Flag standards.
