NLP Certification Bodies

Be the finest NLP Practitioner you can be

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.
