NLP Accreditation in South Africa

How and who can you get accredited by when taking your NLP training in Cape Town or Gauteng?

Finding the right NLP training organisation with the correct NLP Accreditation in South Africa is difficult when you are starting out. There seems to be a lot of companies telling you that there’s is the best and so on. So how do you find out?

NLP is still unregulated in all the countries around the world – therefore governments have no say in the matter of who is recognised or not. All accreditation organisations are self appointed, so you have to be able to research and find who are the ‘good’ guys and not!

As a training provider, i have done my upmost to make sure that the certificate my participants get is valuable – and applicable though out the whole world. I have chosen AIP in America and ANLP in the UK as my recognised accreditation bodies. Both are independent of my organisation and I have to supply various criteria to be able to be underwritten by them.

You, as a consumer, should also be able to have a body you can complain to if anything does not go as planned with your training company. And your complaint should be organised in a away that follows the organisations compliance regulations. Check if they have any!

Here’s an excerpt on ANLP:

Any trainer can, if they choose, go through a peer reviewed accreditation process, where they submit their training manuals and all other information relating to their course management and promotion to an independent ANLP Accreditation Panel for review.

Applicants will be required to demonstrate a thorough understanding of the models, patterns, techniques and their application in NLP. They will need to demonstrate that they have grasped the underlying attitude and flexibility that constitutes the methodologies of NLP. This will be done through assessment and evaluation……
