Certification in NVC

The path to CNVC certification has three phases: registration, pre-assessment and final assessment, in sequence. The Certification Preparation Packet of materials is designed to support candidates in deepening their NVC consciousness, teaching skills, and understanding of NVC concepts. These materials are also designed to help candidates determine their own readiness for completing each phase.

By the time you become a CNVC Certified Trainer, you will have acquired:

    • A strong grounding in NVC consciousness, demonstrated by your views of social change and NVC spirituality, and by participating in an NVC community.

    • A deep understanding of the NVC process, and proficient teaching skills, as well as a willingness to continue to grow in all these areas.

    • At least one year of teaching NVC as a non-certified trainer, including leading workshops and practice groups; significant training experiences with at least three different CNVC Certified Trainers for guidance; at least 50 days of NVC training over the course of three to five years; along with training logs and personal NVC journals to help you chart your own progress and learning.

      CNVC brings a unique perspective to trainers who want to become CNVC Certified Trainers. You will find this process quite different from most traditional training programs. The Certification Team members who support trainer candidates on their journey toward certification are called 'assessors'. They create a partnership with a candidate — what is called a 'power with' process, rather than domination or 'power over'. This paradigm shift allows assessors to carry out their roles in a spirit of shared respect and shared power. When you enter the certification process, CNVC invites you to the challenge of experiencing this shift.

      If you are interested in the process of becoming a CNVC Certified Trainer, we recommend you download the 'Certification Preparation Packet' available from cnvc.org, where you will also find other useful information on this process.
