Everyone learns in a different style and at a different pace. The training schedule will continue until the student feels comfortable with the materials. If more than one trainee is going through the same program, the amount of sessions will probably need to be increased by one or two.

Upon completion of the training, a Certification Exam will be administered on an individual basis to ensure that learning objectives have been met and the designations of Certified DISC Navigator and Certified Motivators Navigator have been earned. The Trainee will be provided with the bio of a team with three members and a Team Summary (2-page summary of DISC and Motivators and the DISC graphs). Student will need to present the analysis of the team to demonstrate his/her ability to “speak” both languages. An understanding of the team’s dynamics and suggestions for how to effectively use the talents of each of the team members will be expected. The trainer will “grade” the student on his/her ability to utilize the assessment tools and provide a feedback and suggestions for improvement.
Time estimate: 90-120 minutes

The fee is $4000 and includes everything. Additional trainees can join the web/telephone sessions for an additional $1000. No more than four trainees in one program.
