Frequently Asked Questions

Frequently Asked Questions About Accredited NLP Certification

Let us help you obtain an NLP certification by answering some FAQs:

What is a certified NLP practitioner?

A certified NLP practitioner is an expert in neuro-linguistic programming (NLP), one of the most powerful behavior change and empowerment methodologies used to help people achieve long-lasting change and success. A certified NLP practitioner is recognized by NLP certification bodies as a professional who can apply its standards, practices, and core competencies in their coaching work. You can become an NLP master practitioner by taking an advanced online training course.

What is the difference between NLP and life coaching certification?

NLP is a methodology rooted in therapy that identifies, describes, and applies strategies to improve an area of a person’s life, such as behavior, identity, or value. Coaching, on the other hand, is a structured communication method that focuses on delivering desired results. In this sense, the NLP model  is more problem-solving, while the latter model is more outcome-based, though both techniques share a similar goal to improve people’s lives.

NLP and life coaching can overlap, and this is why many people confuse the two certificates. Nowadays, many life coaches apply concepts of NLP to their work as they provide more value to their practice and help their clients achieve more holistic business gains. Some of the best coaches also have advanced NLP training.

What qualifications do I need to be an NLP practitioner?

There are no specific profile prerequisites or trainings to becoming an NLP practitioner–it’s a skill set that anyone can learn through online trainings. That said, to become successful in the field, you must have a positive and purposeful attitude while taking the NLP certification online; you also must embody a predisposition that empowers you to carry on a mission to invoke great change in the world.

Every person who aims to become a certified NLP professional must take an accredited course trainings that teach them the basics and techniques of the practice. To become the best coach, it is key to explore and learn the techniques when taking NLP trainings.

The length it takes to complete NLP training varies per institution and certification program. The number of hours required for certification also depends on the certifying body you’re applying to. Typically, online NLP training ranges between sixty to seventy hours, but some training programs even go beyond 120 hours.

You get 65 ICF training hours, or a total of 125 ICF training hours if you’re taking it for a dual-certification by combining it with the certified life coach (CLC) program.
