Guidelines when issuing Multiple Certificates
Competence or skills orientation is a key concept in state-of-the-art adult continuing education. Acquired competencies are being certified regardless of how they were acquired.
Hence, it is professional practice to certify different competencies that have been acquired within the same training period. But a problem could arise if such certificates are being issued in a way, that an external party is unable to discern that all the certificates actually refer to the identical training period (days, hours). Without clarifying the issue this would be in violation of our Code of Ethics.
To support our Fellow Member Trainers when issuing multiple certificates we have set up some guidelines.
Teaching additional content within an IANLP curriculum
Some Fellow Member Trainers position their NLP curricula trainings within a specific context of their personal expertise. Typical such contexts of personal expertise include sales training, pedagogy, personal development, coaching, therapy, counseling, health care and others.
This is one way to stand out in the market of NLP training providers.
Clarificational pragraph added to the curriculum description
In quality discussions with our trainers, we realized that obviously such additional content must not be at the expense of the content defined by the curriculum.
The entire training time (130 hours) must focus on the minimum contents defined in the curriculum. If a Fellow Member Trainer teaches additional content within the framework of an IANLP curriculum training, then the total training time must be extended accordingly. Spending time teaching and/or certifying additional skills within the context of an IANLP curriculum training at the expense of the core curriculum is considered a violation of the guidelines.
A clarifying pragraph to this extend has been added to the curriculum section 'duration of training'.
