Overview of our NLP Practitioner course

Our NLP Practitioner course focuses on how you can use NLP techniques in business/at work, coaching and sport (as well as your life generally!) to help you to achieve huge benefits.

The course has three main parts:

  • Pre-study, which you do at a time to suit you
  • The face-to- face training, which is spread over 4 modules covering 10 days.
  • Assessment and certification, which takes place during the course.

The course is specially designed so that you have the time to learn thoroughly all the practitioner-level NLP techniques during the course. This means that you not only know the techniques, but also know that you know them and how to use them. In order for you to be a truly excellent NLP Practitioner, we also cover what to do in those rare situations when it is NOT appropriate or safe to use NLP. And remember, we also offer a money-back guarantee if you’re not completely satisfied, so it’s a no-risk decision.

Frequently asked questions

Why do we choose to run a modular with pre-study NLP Practitioner training?

Quite simply, we believe this is the best way for you to gain the knowledge that you want to gain to the highest standards whilst balancing the other demands on your time (it is not the simplest or most cost-effective for us!).

The modular approach means you can practice in between the modules and integrate the knowledge, without taking you away from your work and family for long stretches.

The pre-course study allows you to learn the relevant material in your own time before the course, so that we don’t need to explain it in much detail during the course. This allows you more time for the practical exercises. You also can refer to the material after the course when using NLP.

The structure of the courses meets the standards of the relevant certifying/recognizing organisations (see below).

How will you learn all this NLP Practitioner material in 10 days?

Before the course you will receive your own copy of approved audio learning material. All of this is included in the price. The easy to learn pre-study takes around 50-60 hours, all of which you do before the course when and where YOU want, for example while commuting, driving or relaxing.

During the formal training we touch on some of the theory you will already have learned from the pre-study, and update you with any recent techniques. Hence you spend much more of the classroom time on practical exercises, “actually getting it in the muscle”.

The trainers and the coaching assistants will be there to give you feedback and support to heighten your proficiency. In addition, on the final day you will have the opportunity to integrate all you have learned on the course.
