There are many NLP Practitioner schools across North America, ranging from single day online courses, to 6 in-class days plus additional hours of online self study courses, to more thorough 20 day in-class courses spread out over three to four months.
In my humble opinion, the longer time frame course allows the NLP Practitioner to learn, apply, and integrate NLP Neuro Linguistic Programming material more thoroughly to affect change.
It is also important that an NLP Practitioner get training from a reputable, recognized, skillful, instructor and mentor in the science of NLP Neuro Linguistic Programming.
The better and more qualified the instructor and their recognition in the NLP industry, the better the NLP Practitioner skill set should be.
I was trained by the leading NLP Practitioner Certification school in Canada, NLP Centre’s Canada, led by Hugh Comerford. Mr. Comerford was trained by Robert Diltz and Judy Delozier, two prominent figures in the development of NLP Neuro Linguistic Programming over the past 30 years.
