Trainer Training on Zoom

The ultimate steps on your NLP journey are the most exciting of all! Transformations NLP Trainer Certification is run in two sections. The first section is called the NLP Instructor Training, and is open to any NLP Practitioner who has done the Transforming Communication Basic Seminar. This first section certifies you as an Instructor of the Transforming Communication Basic seminar and the Keys to Success weekend. From the start of your career as a trainer, you'll provide your seminar participants with international NLP certification and life transforming skills. The second section of the Trainer Training is called the NLP Trainer Intensive, and is open only to NLP Master Practitioners, who have done the first section and who began their NLP training at least 2 years before the start of the Trainer Intensive. There are several outside-course requirements for trainees to achieve Certification as an NLP Trainer, apart from the NLP Trainer Intensive. Write to us as soon as possible, at to find out how you can complete these.

At the end of her Instructor Training, Dr Brenda Kaye wrote; "In one week I've gone from being unable to imagine myself instructing comfortably, to being completely relaxed and at ease in front of a small group."

"completely changed my life!", "gave a whole new insight into how we treat others", "is an essential aid to relationships", and "is a definite must".

How do I achieve Certification?

Actual certification as an NLP Trainer with IANLP requires far more than simply attending this training. The requirements for Certification are:

  1. Attend the prerequisite trainings.
  2. Complete the 13 pages of closed book written pre-test on NLP
  3. Attend the Intensive.
  4. Complete the closed book test of NLP Trainer Skills.
  5. Demonstrate randomly selected examples from 9 core NLP proficiencies without notes.
  6. Use the NLP Trainer skills in an integrated way in two 20 minute presentations.
  7. Design a weekend training, a Practitioner Training and a Master Practitioner training to IANLP standards.
  8. Run a 2-4 day NLP training (such as Transforming Communication) under supervision of one of the NLP Trainers.
  9. Assist at a full 18 day Practitioner and 18 day Master Practitioner course.

Time to complete requirements 3-7 will be available at the Intensive. Requirements 8 and 9 may be completed either before or after the Intensive. On completion of the requirements, you'll receive an NLP Trainers certificate with no expiry date and no contracts to sign. Details of these requirements are available in this PDF information.

What If I don't want Certification?

You can certainly attend the intensive just for the training. The skills will be applicable in any context where you want to deliver a speech, teach, lead a group, manage a meeting or train others. And this is a rare opportunity to train with several world class NLP Trainers. On the other hand, the fee for Certification is included in the Intensive fee, so by completing the Certification requirements you ensure you get the full benefit. It's up to you.
