Advanced Practitioner Certification Training

In the Advanced Practitioner Certification Training  (APCT) Course we teach the basic concepts, skills, patterns and techniques required for certification by the Society of Neuro-Linguistic Programming. The course follows a carefully planned sequence designed to ensure that you systematically acquire and integrate the required skills and information.

Course Synopsis

The Advanced Practitioner Certification Training Course is an intense and highly rewarding six-month course of instruction. Classes are conducted one weekend per month. Friday evening classes meet from 7:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m.  Saturday classes meet from 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. (some of the weekends have a Saturday evening activity that lasts until 10:00 p.m.).  Sunday classes meet from 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. A brief description of the course content for each weekend follows.

APCT Weekend One

APCT Weekend One is about getting acquainted with your classmates, laying the course ground rules, and building the foundation for following weekends. The weekend includes team building and trust exercises. We cover the presuppositions at the heart of the NLP belief system. You will learn to identify and install resourceful states of mind for use in future exercises. And you will learn the importance of developing the Well Formed Outcomes necessary to achieve your goals.

APCT Weekend Two

APCT Weekend Two is about understanding how language affects your thoughts, perceptions and behaviors. You will learn about the Meta Model and the Seven Categories of Experience. You will learn to use the Visual Squash and the New Behavior Generator techniques. And building on weekend one, you will learn how to create a compelling future using Well Formed Outcomes. We round out this weekend by introducing you to Advanced Change Techniques.

APCT Weekend Three

APCT Weekend Three is about changing your Belief Systems and expanding your Personal Power. During this weekend we cover the process of eliciting and installing specific strategies for desired behaviors. You will learn the important and very powerful technique of Reframing. And, you will learn how to discover and remove the limiting beliefs and failure loops that hold you back.

APCT Weekend Four

APCT Weekend Four is about attracting money into your life. A lack of financial resources is often the result of limiting beliefs about money. So, this weekend is devoted to helping you understand and change whatever limiting beliefs you may have regarding money. You will learn how to use Submodalities, the Swish Pattern, and Time Line Therapy TM to bring about significant belief changes. Dramatic breakthroughs are often experienced using these three techniques.

APCT Weekend Five

APCT Weekend Five is about creating your Five-Year Success Plan. During this weekend we examine alternative belief systems that have proven to be successful over time. You will learn some new and powerful change work techniques. You will create your five-year success plan and learn the important process of future pacing.  We also cover Psycho-Immunology and you will learn how to use NLP techniques to effectively deal with mental, physical, and emotional health issues.

APCT Weekend Six

APCT Weekend Six is about pulling it all together. We review the numerous change work techniques covered during the previous months. One day of the weekend is spent at a ROPES course. The activities on this day are designed to challenge you and your teammates to use everything you have learned to help each other move beyond personal limitations. Participation in the physical activities of the ROPES course is voluntary.  The final "exams" this weekend present you with an opportunity to demonstrate to yourself and others how much you have learned. 


We hope you find this information useful in making your decision to join us for Advanced Practitioner Certification Training. We are committed to providing you with a unique and highly rewarding learning experience.

Jan and Staff -

"I have some exceptional news to share! Since graduating the APCT course in June, life has taken an amazing turn for me (like that’s news to y’all!) I take delivery of the pearl white Lexus SC300 today. It was in my future pace… To top that off, I “threw in for kicks” an outcome of reducing my weight by 15 lbs. Happy to report that today, I weigh more than 20 lbs. LESS and am buying all new clothes since my old ones hang off me now! Once I decided to release the man that I “thought” was my future (and was all wrong for me anyway), all this “stuff” started to happen. I had a great date this weekend (and I had all the courage in the world to ask him out instead of waiting for him to ask me!)

My ROPES course word for short term goal is “passion” and long term “prosperity”. As you can hopefully glean from this letter, I have my passion and my prosperity! The Lexus was the “road marker” to show me that I had entered into prosperity... and this is just the beginning! Thanks for the amazing work you do!"
