Society of NLP

Established in 1978, the Society of Neuro-Linguistic Programming of Society of NLP™ is a worldwide organization set up for the purpose of exerting quality control over those training programs and services claiming to represent the model of Neuro-Linguistic Programming™ (NLP™).

Student’s wishing to be certified by Dr. Richard Bandler, father and co-founder of Neuro-Linguistic Programming and John LaValle or Licensed Trainers of Neuro-Linguistic Programming that have been licensed by Bandler and LaValle should look for the Society logo seen above.

The presentation of the above logo on documents and promotional materials indicates that the trainer has been trained by and meets the standards of Dr. Richard Bandler, NLP's father and co-founder. There are many other NLP splinter groups out there, but if you the student are looking for the most original and highest quality NLP education as well as the most up-to-date findings of Dr. Bandler, you should not settle for anything less than a Society licensed trainers.

If you participate in an NLP training event that is recognized by the Society, you will receive a certificate from the Society in 90 or less days depending upon how quickly your trainer sends your information to the Society. The certificate is signed by both your trainer and Dr. Richard Bandler. Dr. Bandler takes Practitioner certification very seriously and personally signs every certificate himself.
