Relationship to Certification

Many of our participants are interested in certification and some have been in the program while on the path to certification. We’ve had certified trainers take the program and some participants have completed their certification during the program.

The Leadership Program is not a certification program, and participation in the program in no way implies that you will either be certified by the Center for Nonviolent Communication (CNVC) or that we will recommend you for certification.

At the same time, this program provides 200 hours (25 days) of training for certification purposes. Many of the activities within the program are aligned with and directly support preparation for certification. Those pursuing certification can use journaling questions, check-lists and processes we’ve created specifically to offer you support.
