How to Choose a Good NLP Trainer

White Board

If you are thinking about doing some NLP Training for yourself, you may be wondering where to start looking, and how to decide which Trainer is going to be the `right` one for you.

NLP Courses come in many differing formats, from a basic taster session to full Trainers Training. Although NLP is one of many unregulated professions, the qualification structure within the field of NLP is generally accepted. Choosing the level of qualification you ultimately want to achieve depends on what you want to do with your qualification. NLP is very powerful for many areas of self development including confidence, public speaking, selling, negotiation, relationships, education, health and sports, to name but a few. It is therefore important to check this before you commit to a training course.
It is also vitally important that you ensure your potential NLP Trainer does hold the required ceritications to deliver an NLP Training Course. ANLP does not recognise any form of online NLP training for Professional or Trainer purposes, so if you intend to use your NLP Training in future, please ensure you choose face to face training - after all, you would not choose a doctor or lawyer who had only trined online, would you? 


Choosing your course wisely requires a little homework and it will be well worth the effort in the long term. It is a good idea to prepare a list of questions beforehand to ask your prospective Trainer.

And, because the practice of NLP is not currently regulated, ANLP always recommends that you select a Trainer who is Accredited with, or a Member of a reputable Organisation.


All Trainer Members of ANLP agree to adhere to the ANLP Code of ethics and the Trainers Code of Ethics. Trainer Members are  required to provided copies of NLP qualifications and external references. Qualifications are checked and verified by the ANLP Membership Co-Ordinator. In addition, ANLP has a complaints procedure in place to deal with concerns about any Member.
