1. What is the function of INLPF?
As the NLP Practitioner/Master NLP Practitioner/NLP Trainers
training certification is an advanced NLP training we have a
responsibility to make sure that all applicants for the
training are adequately prepared for these course. NLP is a
new field and subsequently there is much variation in
standards, curriculum and quality of training throughout the
NLP community both within individual nations and
internationally. One of the outcomes of the INLPF is to lift
the standard of NLP training worldwide.
2. What standards should I expect for a
Practitioner of NLP
A minimum of 120
hours is the generally recognized and accepted time standard
for Practitioner of NLP training for most NLP Associations.
Process not Content :
The field of NLP makes the distinction between process and
content. NLP is a process (not content) model. Content models
are not NLP! I have seen books marketed as NLP texts that
contain content rituals under the guise of NLP techniques.
Skilled NLP trainers make the distinction when teaching
between process and pattern and content examples. NLP does not
include mysticism or personality type labeling and training
programs that include these classes of material are not
teaching pure NLP! NLP does not include content beliefs!
3. What Research Supports NLP?
An extensive catalogue of NLP research is kept on the internet
by the University of Bielefeld in Germany, and can be reached
4. Does NLP always get results?
Yes and no. It is impossible not to get a result but the
result may not match your internal representation of the
outcome. NLP is most successful with those people who have an
open mind. Results can also be achieved with someone who is
skeptical but it may take longer if the Consultant has to
build proof and credibility in the effectiveness of the NLP
