FAQs

1. WHY SHOULD I TRAIN WITH LANLP'S CERTIFICATION PROGRAM? (CLICK HERE TO OPEN TABS)

  1. First and foremost, which may not seem to be of importance on the surface is, we bring decades of REAL-WORLD corporate and clinical “in-the-trenches” work experience to your NLP training. This benefits you, our graduates, by maximally preparing you for doing truly effective work with people once you’re out in the field. You’ll find most trainers have NO real world experience what-so-ever! They get certified and then go on to train others but never USE what they have in a corporate or clinical environment. LANLP offers you the expertise and education from an experienced professional speaker & trainer IN THE SPEAKING BUSINESS! Ask questions of us like, “when and how” the techniques and exercises truly apply to real people within our world. John works closely with each and every student making sure you receive the very best information at a conscious as well as UNconscious level so you receive more for your time and your investment!
  2. We are Los Angeles’ Premier NLP training company… and pride ourselves on being the very best!
  3. We work around YOUR schedule! Our program is designed so you’ll become certified over the course of six weekends, so you can have a life and take only the necessary time off to train and learn with us.
  4. Because you’ll train only on the weekends, it gives you plenty of time to practice and integrate the information in between classes and form out-of-class study groups with fellow students during the week to learn the information at a deeper level. Many students have experienced that the short/advanced courses which other companies offer are leaving them with no real practical memory or benefits of the traditional pure 12-day, 120-hr program. Because this is how Richard Bandler and John Grinder developed and founded GENUINE NLP, we acknowledge and respect the model they created because IT WORKED! Don’t be fooled by other courses giving you reasons why they cannot give you the traditional 12-day 120-hrs of face-to-face time with the trainers. Yes, the CD’s, reading and studying are necessary, but not a substitute for pure hands-on instruction. You become certified as a practitioner of NLP the way is was originally designed, and we plan on remaining true to NLP roots. Come learn from the one of the very best in the industry!
  5. We also offer graduates our monthly Meet Up™ group to share and participate with other practitioners and master practitioners local in the area. It’s a great way to continue your learning and immerse by discussing and practicing ideas and concepts you’ve learned in class and experienced outside in the real world.
  6. Most importantly, we promise you’ll have so much FUN learning NLP you’ll leave saying this program was a incredible life changing experience while you had one of the most memorable times of your life!

2. HOW WILL LEARNING NLP BENEFIT ME MOST?

By attending and learning the basic strategies of NLP you will learn to have much more personal happiness and professional success which will be much more consistent, and much more predictable. Your effectiveness working with others will be dramatically increased, and your ability to empower yourself for optimum results will be increased. You will be able to generate empowering emotional states within yourself at will, eliminate any negative emotions or limiting decisions, identify and change limiting beliefs, inspire yourself with a compelling future that will have much better chances of coming true, and create patterns of excellence from any role model you choose.

Whether you’re already succeeding in your profession, having some difficulties, or if you’re transitioning into a new position, NLP can help you achieve, maintain and enhance excellence. Managers and Entrepreneurs use the information to develop strong teamwork and relationships, and to foster positive interpersonal skills. Negotiations and problem solving sessions are enhanced to create solution-oriented, win-win approaches.

Salespeople learn to build deep levels of rapport, elicit and fulfill the criteria and values of clients, and develop effective methods for handling buyer’s remorse or future objections so the sales relationship is long-term and mutually satisfying. Trainers and Educators learn new paradigms for inspiring and engaging students, as well as effective techniques for dealing with challenging learning environments.

Mental Health Professionals learn new skills and techniques that supplement their repertoire, and gain additional insights into helping clients make the changes that support their own process of healing. Medical Professionals learn techniques to better elicit information from clients, and to help the client be more comfortable with and receptive to treatment, thus supporting them to heal in a more responsive fashion.

5. HOW LONG IS YOUR NLP TRAINING COURSE?

You’re going to receive the benefits of the traditional pure 12-day, 120-hr program. Because this is how Richard Bandler and John Grinder developed and founded GENUINE NLP back in the early 1970’s. We acknowledge and respect the model they created because it WORKS! You get 12-days / 120-hrs of face-to-face time with your trainer, AND support in-between the weekends personally from John.

6. CAN I PRE-STUDY BEFORE THE TRAINING BEGINS, HOW?

Yes, we encourage it, through reading books, articles, audio’s, video’s and/or through coaching with an NLP trained coach (like John.). Reading is an excellent way of learning and absorbing the sometimes complex information. Reading various books can offer additional resources and material to enrich your LIVE training experience. To learn and really become artful in NLP it does requires real time and interaction with the trainers AND other students. There is no substitute for a LIVE experience. There’s over 100’s of books on NLP, and they range from support material for studying NLP, to applications of NLP, business communication, relationships, education, psychotherapy and working on personal development. Let us know and we can recommend specific Practitioner level reading for you and/or Master Practitioner level reading, so please ask us or visit our store here!

9. WHAT ARE THE STANDARDS I SHOULD EXPECT AS A PRACTITIONER OF NLP?

To receive the best quality NLP training, it’s recommended 120 certification hrs. This is the industry standard for Practitioner of NLP trainings, and for most NLP Associations. Unfortunately some training organizations have created closed associations for only their graduates. Some are framed as broad associations that endorse a lesser time standard (usually seven days, or less!) for Practitioner of NLP certification. The so called “accelerated,” “advanced, ” “fast track” or a 4-day NLP program, these DO NOT meet Practitioner of NLP industry standards no matter what they say, and I can promise you you’ll NEVER learn all this complex information and an unconscious level.  So IF you decide to go somewhere else, ask them HOW you’ll recieve your 120 hrs of study. PLEASE NOTE: we only offer “recognized standards” for Practitioners and Masters programs. Call us for further details and your Free NLP info Packet.

10. WHAT'S AFTER THE BASIC NLP CERTIFICATION IN NLP?

The next learning step after basic Practitioner is the Masters level program, and then the Trainers Training. We offer this 12-day extraordinary advanced program once every year. This allows our students to fully integrate Practitioner level material at an unconscious level before moving on. We also encourage our practitioner students to learn from other trainers and institutions, and to return to help out with our practitioner training as a certified assistant to get a full rounded perspective. What’s most important about us is that we build an NLP community of qualified, experienced practitioners!.So you get to return to our training programs again and again FOR FREE! No other company would dare to give you this. Contact us for details!
