General assessement criteria for NLP Practitioner

  • The NLP Practitioner Certification process is based on your integration of self evolving and ecological attitudes, proficiency in NLP skills and abilities, and content knowledge of NLP principles and techniques.
  • The NLP Practitioner Certification process will also be based upon your ABILITY TO ELICIT RESPONSES in the formal classroom setting and informally between yourselves. You will be evaluated as follows:
  • Your ability to MAINTAIN RAPPORT between yourself, the other participants, staff, instructors, assistants and anyone else associated with the training. If rapport is lost, you have the responsibility to re-establish it and maintain it through time
  • Your ability to ELICIT the STATES and RESPONSES you are after within both yourself and others
  • Your ATTENTION to and FACILITATION of ECOLOGY in all of your interactions with SELF and OTHERS
  • Evaluation begins when you say "hello" and does not end; the evaluation is continuous and on a daily basis. Your skills will be evaluated periodically and suggestions made for improvement if necessary. A considerable amount of your evaluation rests on how you treat yourself, your peers and the trainers over time
  • Integrating the NLP skills and concepts into your BEHAVIOR (what you you act) is the evidence procedure for certification as a Neuro-Linguistic Programmer
