Certification as a Practitioner of NLP consists of 36 hours of training. Each section of

study results from a carefully constructed model designed to build one on the other.
Comprehension of each subject moves the student to the next level of expertise. Training
will consist of lectures, demonstrations and exercises. Students will perform numerous
exercises for both practice and retention. NLP is learned by doing.
The following subjects are covered during the 36 hours:
Definition and History of NLP NLP will be defined. The history of NLP will reveal the
impressive body of material upon which NLP is based.
The Key Presuppositions of NLP The Key Presuppositions of NLP represent the beliefs
that excellent communicators hold.
The Three Qualities Of Exceptional Communicators: 1. Know your outcome . 2. Have
observational skills . 3. Exercise behavioral flexibility.
The NLP Practitioner training provides the training necessary for behavioral
modification. By controlling your behavior you will be equipped to control the
conversation and to obtain your outcome.
NLP rapport building skills allow for flexibility of behavior.
Representation System The brain receives information through the five senses. In NLP
we refer to the five senses as the representation system. You will learn how the
representation system provides the basis to all thought processes. The emphasis and
power of NLP states that change work is done at the process and not the content level.
Sub-modalities A sub-modality equals the smaller coding of the representation
system. Sub-modalities define the qualities of our internal representations. Visual in NLP
describes one of the representation system or modality. An introduction to submodalities comes early in the training. The advanced therapeutic use of submodalities happens during the latter part of the training with far more training in the
Master Practitioner Level. Learning the basics of sub-modalities gives the student
immense control over running his/her own brain.
