Preparation and Agenda

Registering for an MBTI® certification session is the beginning of an extremely rewarding training experience. The four-day program immerses you in an active and collaborative learning environment that depends both on your preparation and your participation, as outlined below. Upon successful completion of the course, you will be able to purchase and administer the MBTI Step I and Step II assessments.


Preparation for the class begins after you register for one of the certification sessions. You will receive instructions via email with everything you need to complete so you will be fully prepared for the class. Following that, you will receive a shipment including some of the program materials listed below. You will complete approximately 3 hours of pre-work which includes taking the MBTI assessment online. In order to get the full value of the program and pass all the exams, it is very important that you complete the pre-work activities by the given deadlines.

Your tuition includes MBTI reference materials and support tools to ensure you have the information and resources you need to immediately put your knowledge into practice after the training. Go to Take Away Resources for an explanation of these valuable materials.
