Evaluation criteria of ITA – International NLP Trainer

The International NLP Trainers certified by ITA have been through several evaluations in the NLP Trainers Training.

The evaluations are a real test of the individual’s competency as an NLP Trainer and NLP Coach. The evaluations include:

• Public Speaking
• Presentations
• Presentation Under Challenging Circumstances
• On the spot demonstration of basic to advanced NLP techniques
• 2 Written Examinations of 3 hours each

Due to the high-level NLP Trainer certification criteria, many individuals across the globe have even failed the evaluation. This includes NLP trainers from other international NLP Training Institutes.

Earn the ITA- International NLP Certification in India!

My NLP Training Institute – Transformative NLP International (T-NLP) provides both – NLP as well as New Code NLP Trainings – certified by ITA. Therefore, the NLP certification I provide has value all across the world. Further, the certificate carries the prestigious signature of John Grinder himself.

Importantly, to ensure that the quality of an NLP coach is up to international standards, the participants do not qualify to receive the International NLP Certification just by attending the NLP course.

There are evaluations that the participants of my NLP Training Course have to go through before they receive the International NLP certificate.

This format is applied for all my NLP Trainings – NLP Practitioner, NLP Master Practitioner and New Code NLP Practitioner.

My unique and cherished experience of NLP trainings

I have been fortunate to be a mentor in NLP courses facilitated by Dr. John Grinder, Carmen Bostic and Michael Carroll, including NLP Trainers Training. The participants who attended the NLP trainings were from over 30 countries.

Since I am an ITA – NLP Trainer, my New Code NLP and NLP trainings (which I often facilitate in India -Mumbai, Bangalore and Delhi) follow the criteria set by Dr. John Grinder for NLP trainings. To know the criteria, check the page- NLP Certification in India.

I am glad to share that I am the only ITA Certified NLP Trainer in India to provide both NLP Certifications – NLP training as well as New Code NLP Trainings across India.

Based on my learning I have gained from co-creators of NLP, co-developers of NLP and New Code NLP as well as several NLP Trainings in India, my facilitation follows a certain format, which you can find on NLP Workshop page.
