Training and Certification Standards

How do I know I am training to the right standards for what I want to do?

NLP is currently unregulated but there are a number of organisations that are promoting practicing to high standards and ethics within the industry and as such have set their own standards by which trainings and students can be assessed. They also provide recommended course contents for specific certification levels.

Below is an overview of a number of key organisations recognised in the UK and abroad. Please see the individual website for more details.
