Online NLP training is said by some NLP training centers as not as effective as an in-person NLP training. This can be true and this can be false. Not every online NLP training is the same.
There are a few things that are quite unique about and online NLP training that makes it much more effective than an in-person training.
- Trainer Access and Support
- Effective and Comprehensive Assignments
- Thorough Training Materials
These, of course, could apply to an in-person training too. However, the question of the quality of and in-person training does not come up as much as it does when evaluating an online training. It should!
Trainer Access and Support
Many students are concerned that they will be on their own if doing an online NLP training. This is most likely true with courses that are part of a Udemy website or equivalent because they are not managed directly by the training center itself. If you are evaluating the trainer access and support of an online NLP training make sure to ask specific
If you are evaluating the trainer access and support of an online NLP training make sure to ask specific questions regarding how to communicate with the trainer or support staff if you have a problem or question about the material. Even though it is an online course, you should still be able to get help as needed. Find out how you will be able to receive support and if there is an extra charge for it.
Some training centers allow you to book time with a trainer for extra help. This is generally charged for because it is live training time.
How is Your Coursework Evaluated?
Even though it’s an online course, there still needs to be accountability of the student and the center. Some centers are not concerned with whether the student has learned anything. They will often issue the certificate just because they received the money. If you are looking for a credible training center, it will have many assignments that you will need to complete and submit your results to them for evaluation and grading. This is important because it is the only way to determine whether you understand the material and have learned the skills to be a practitioner.
Make sure to ask the online training center how they evaluate the student’s work and what is required to pass the course and receive your certificate.
What are the NLP Training Materials?
A good training program will have a combination of workbooks/manuals, audio files, and demonstration videos. This allows people with different learning styles to benefit from the training as well.
Additionally, it is good if the training program offers live meetings. They most likely will not be in person but will be in an online classroom. This allows open time to discuss the material with the trainers and other students. Some centers may charge extra for this feature.
If the material is located only online, ask if it is still accessible after you complete the training. This will allow you to refresh as needed.
When evaluating an online NLP training, the above items are important to consider. If a training center can not provide you answers or you are not satisfied with their response, you may want to go somewhere else.
