  • Choose purposefully from your tool bag of adaptable activities the ones that are the perfect match to your context.

Part II

Trainer Certification Course

A challenging licensing and certification day that will…

  • Equip you with hands-on tools, skills and knowledge required to deliver the TBR Practitioner Class
  • Put your skills to the test – in front of more than a dozen fellow trainers willing to give helpful, constructive and solution-focused feedback – glows & grows!
  • Provide an open & honest Q&A session with a mentor that will help you kickstart your own training process

If you pass the test, you will receive…

  • A certificate of successful completion that gets you licensed to deliver the TBR Practitioner Class, and proudly call yourself a TBR CT (Certified Trainer)
  • Your own copy of the TBR Facilitators’ Guide (FG), a resourceful script as thick as a brick that covers all of the TBR Practitioner Class, from a trainer’s perspective
  • Access to the TBR Certified Trainers’ network, a community of practice where people share their challenges & answers
  • Access to the TBR CT mentoring channel, including confidential and private support by the trainer who certified you

Please note:

  • Completion of the TBR Practitioner Class is a mandatory prerequisite for participation in the Trainer Certification Course. You cannot become a Certified Trainer without that. The complete 3-day package starts with this prerequisite course.
  • If you’re already a TBR Practitioner, we understand that you are probably eager to become a Certified Trainer now, without having to travel to the US. We’re giving our best to provide a few spots in the Trainer Certification Course, which is on the final day of our full 3-day course package, so you can join the group and achieve your goal.
  • If you’re already a TBR Practitioner and want to become a Certified Trainer, you will be asked upon booking to provide evidence where and when you completed the TBR Practitioner Class, in the past. This includes a legible scan of your certificate of completion.
