Course Overview

NLP Practitioner Program

FIRE UP Director Kathy McKenzie is a Master Practitioner of NLP and Trainer with over 25 years training NLP and incorporating NLP into training programs.

FIRE UP originally only trained NLP but due to the confusion in the market place about what actually constituted an accredited NLP Practitioner Program decided to incorporate the key learnings from an NLP Practitioner course into their Certificate IV in Business and Personal Coaching (10547NAT).

By becoming a Registered Training Organisation in 2010 FIRE UP was able to align the NLP Practitioner to accredited training and give you the confidence that it has been audited for quality and assessed for currency and relevance.

If you specifically want to gain recognition with the Australian NLP Board we offer additional training to consolidate your NLP Skills.

Many organisations offer NLP Programs and claim that is enough for coaching however this is generally because they have not been able to fulfil the rigorous criteria required to become a Registered Training Organisation with the Australian Skills Quality Authority or satisfy the requirements of the International Coach Federation to align to the ICF Core Competencies.

We continually aim for the highest standards and as such are happy to meet the strict criteria to demonstrate quality and consistency in delivery.

NLP is a powerful tool in any environment and needs to be trained by highly skilled trainers with years of experience, currency in practise and who engage in continual professional development.

FIRE UP became a Registered Training Organisation because there is no formal auditing required to deliver NLP programs and hence no quality control.  This was confusing for potential students. We guarantee you credibility, consistency and currency as every program must demonstrate continual improvement and be reaccredited every 5 years.

All our trainers have to meet the high standards of ASQA to be a recognised trainer and demonstrate their commitment to ongoing professional development annually.

Many NLP Practitioner Programs are still based on the original programs developed in the 1970s and 1980s and do not incorporate the latest neuroscience and developments.

You don’t need to pass any quality control to issue an NLP Practitioner Certificate and the programs vary enormously in their length and depth.  There is also no consistency in assessment which makes it hard to determine.

As an RTO  incorporating NLP into our accredited programs it gives students a guarantee of quality and a recognised qualification that will be consistently delivered by highly professional trainers.

We can offer the additional training you need if you want ABNLP recognition.
