Basic Practitioner and Master Practitioner
Neuro-Linguistic Programming NLP Training


What is an NLP Practitioner?

NLP Practitioners are coaches, educators, engineers, administrative assistants, doctors, nurses, psychologists, executives, sales people, massage therapists, Naturopath doctors, and parents who desire better communication. We do NLP training for use for musicians, artists, life learners, accelerated learners, and people who have faced problems with learning challenges and discover how NLP improves their life and learning.

Our classes will be held onsite Saturday and Sunday. Friday’s class will be in webinar. Our first two weekends are at Apositiva Center, and the following weekends are arranged in collaboration with current students in class, so you have one day in the convenience of your home and two having fun practicing with your cohorts.

ONLINE SELF-PACED CLASSES will be offered to students. As they become available we will list them on our website. Call for upcoming courses.

      NLP Training


      Why NLP?

      Do you ever meet people who are successful in the same way you want to be successful? Have you ever read a story or seen a movie and wanted to change your life? Do you hear other people talk about wanting to live with more positive ways to manage themselves and get better results than what they have now? Do you want their secret?

      The secret can be revealed inside of every human potential. We can teach you to get clearer focus on the things that are most important, and then explore the strategies that make it happen. NLP is the art and science of human excellence. Learn to create better value agreements with yourself.

      Goals, Blocks or Mindsets – A business professional saw our card when someone showed it to them and were asked about the “Practitioner, NLP.” The professional smiled and explained that they went to this NLP Practitioner with their life partner. The practitioner guided them in some exercises and when they left the appointment it surprised them how much they improved in their relationship in one session! Some people call it magic. Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) is designed to be used with yourself or to help other people. Life or business.

      Practitioner – Neuro-Linguistic Programming (P.NLP)


      NLP Primary

      Dates: (Call and Ask Us for Schedule) One day workshop.
      What You Always Wanted to Know About NLP, but Were Afraid to Ask – Open to Everyone. This is a one day workshop from 11:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. This is a special brief introduction to NLP. The class fee is $95 and includes workshop, materials, fun, and refreshments. Please call us directly to sign up.

      Practitioner students will learn and practice basic skills with fun, exciting, skilled, and entertaining instructors. Please call for the syllabus as Practitioner updates with current changes each semester. Objectives are to learn and meet basic competencies with a smooth transition into the Master Program. All books and materials are included. Outside reading may be suggested for expanded learning.

      Requirements: No special educational requirements. Computer access is important and a good internet connection. Some classes will be held online and students will practice getting onto the site with instructors prior to class.

      Policy for All Certification Courses: Our courses are customized and arranged for small, high interactive instruction. In fairness to you and instructors, no refunds are given after certification courses begin. If you miss a class you may come to future classes. Instructors may be available for coaching by a separate agreement. Coaching services may include videos, tutoring, or online classes. Our graduating students are welcome to connect with instructors (because they miss the fun) by calling Apositiva Center, so we may have a learning package and assure space is available.

      When: Classes are held on the weekends. If you want to come and have a schedule concern, call and ask about our Instructor Support. If you miss the start, we accommodate students who are willing to be mentored.


      NLP Practitioner Certification


      Two Certifications in One Program

      Apositiva’s “NLP Practitioner” program is taught along with our Clinical Hypnotherapy Training. This is a great deal, as you obtain two (2) certifications in one program. If you were to take the NLP Program as a stand-alone with other organizations you could end up paying almost twice as much, but for two certifications taught simultaneously (you receive two certifications: Clinical Hypnotherapy and NLP Practitioner). Our programs use blended learning, so you’ll find videos and experiential activity for learner expansion. Certificates are presented upon completion of the program and full payment for the course. When students take our CHt program, the one (1) additional weekend gives them the full NLP Practitioner certificate.

      In order for the Apositiva team to customize our fun learning experience, we must know in advance of your plan to attend. If you are unsure of whether you wish to attend this year, feel free to call or come into the Apositiva Center at any time.

      NLP Exclusive: If you only want the NLP training, please call us for a special class arrangement. Apositiva offers customized training plans.

        Our Policy for All Certification Courses


        If for some reason you have missed the first class dates, and still want to join the class, contact us for flexible ideas on what might work. Instructors will try to work with you to catch up, and then you can come to the next series to catch up on what you missed. In fairness to you and us, this is an adult course and you are expected to be responsible for attendance and completing assigned work.

        Students are given dates and expected to attend all classes to receive certification. Certificates are provided to students upon completion of the program and full payment for classes. Due to the structure and nature of the course, refunds are not given after the course has begun. If a student needs to drop out they may attend a future series without additional payment.

        Students may request time with an instructor to catch up or meet with fellow students. Since we update the course every year, later classes may offer different processes than the class a student signs up for originally. This is actually to the benefit of the student to keep them current.

        Thank you for honoring your learning and respecting the time of your instructors. Some classes have visiting instructors and as it is a special event for only that day. We strive to bring richness and creativity to our classes, and you are part of it!
