What is the License Agreement all about?
The license agreement is simply a way of protecting yourself, NLP and Dr Bandler. It stipulates that you will not go out and claim you are an NLP trainer after doing one or two courses. It maintains the integrity of the field and ensures that you will only start representing yourself as a NLP trainer when you are appropriately licensed.
How Are You Certified In IINLP and Coaching?
If you complete an NLP Practitioner, Business Practitioner or Master Practitioner training, you will be automatically licensed and certified by Dr. Richard Bandler and the Society of NLP. This entitles you to be a member of the Society of NLP for two years. After that you keep up your certification by simply contacting the Society of NLP and describing how you have been up dating your skills and using NLP over the two years. Certification costs initially are $200 and are included in your course fee. Certification renewal every two years is free.
Our special NLP Coaching Course is certified directly by us here at the institute and licensed by the Society of NLP. With our extensive experience in working with thousands of people in coaching and therapy combined with our advanced qualifications in NLP, Psychotherapy, Counselling, Hypnotherapy, Applied Psychology and Business, we are confident that we are more than competent to certify and set appropriate standards in such a loosely defined field as Life and Business Coaching.
What is The Society of NLP? and How Recognised is it?
The Society of NLP is the largest and oldest NLP training body in the world. It was founded in 1979. It is recognised as the only licensed NLP certification body by NLP co-founder Dr. Richard Bandler.
What qualifications have the trainers got?
All trainers are fully licensed Trainers of the Society of NLP. Owen Fitzpatrick and Brian Colbert are the ONLY licensed Master Trainers of NLP in Ireland (highest recognition in the field). Owen Fitzpatrick has a Masters in Applied Psychology. Brian Colbert has a degree in Industrial Relations and is member of the CIPD. All trainers are also qualified Hypnotherapists and Psychotherapists.
What can I do after my Practitioner and what does that qualify me to do?
It simply means that you are licensed as someone who can practise NLP with yourself and others. NLP is an educational tool. It is teaching people how to use their brains and language more effectively tomorrow. It is NOT a therapeutic or even a coaching certification. (However, it contains probably the most important set of skills you can use in coaching)
Can I train others in NLP after completing my Practitioner and Master Practitioner?
You cannot train a NLP Practitioner or NLP Master Practitioner. You must complete the NLP Trainers Training with Dr Bandler himself in order to become a Licensed Trainer.
I want to become a Life/Business Coach. What do you suggest that I do?
We suggest that you do our NLP Coaching Course.
It involves i) completing our Practitioner or Business Practitioner course, then ii) completing our Master Practitioner course and finally iii) applying for and completing our Coaching Programme.
