These are the types of questions we get asked frequently from people just like you who want to choose an NLP training that is reputable and professional. Not all NLP Trainings offered in Australia are recognised by the NLPAA as they do not meet the international minimum standards.
When you are looking for an NLP Trainer, make sure the training meets the criteria for recognition as a Certified Training:
People choose to study NLP for all sorts of reasons. Some people want to be therapists, others want to use NLP in business and sales, in teaching and some want to apply it to themselves for personal development.
Because the NLPAA is passionate about seeing NLP made available widely in the Australian community we feel it’s time to suggest some guidelines to assist you in your choice. Unfortunately some NLP training does not meet our minimum training requirements which make it difficult for NLP to be taken seriously.
The NLPAA Trainer Members listed on the NLPAA Website have gone through a very rigorous application process and are required to renew their membership each year with a variety of supporting documents - so we do invite you to start your research to find an NLP trainer by looking at our NLP Trainer Members.
So… where to begin?
Do your research.
Not all NLP Training is the same - they vary greatly in the training style, experience and skill.
When choosing an NLP Trainer you are making a large investment of time and money. Therefore, we suggest to do a bit of research to find the trainer that fits you and your needs. Some trainers work primarily with Business Professionals, some work with people who want to use NLP as a Coach or Therapist and others train a more general audience.
To find the trainer with the experience, specialty, quality and style that you are looking for we encourage you to talk to many trainers and be prepared to travel to train with the trainer who meets your needs best.
Here are some points and questions you may find useful to ask to any potential trainer you are researching.
