The UK certification programme is a blended course that includes pre-course study followed by a 3-day highly interactive workshop, during which we cover the background to The Birkman Method, the different scales and their interpretation, and reporting from the assessment.
The aim of the certification training is to provide delegates with the expertise to accurately analyse and interpret results produced by The Birkman Method assessment for use in the one-to-one context.
Successful completion of the programme enables the delegate to describe himself or herself as a Birkman Certified Consultant and provides access to the full range of reporting available from The Birkman Method assessment.
Thereafter Birkman Certified Consultants are expected to maintain their accreditation by undertaking Birkman-focused professional development activities.
How Consultants Provide Assessment
The questionnaire and related reports are accessed via a secure online system, BirkmanDirect®. No specialist software is required, only Internet access.
Using BirkmanDirect®, respondents are emailed a unique link to access the Birkman questionnaire or are provided a unique password; they then complete the questionnaire in their own time on their computers at work or at home. Completion time averages 30 to 45 minutes and the results are available to the consultant immediately upon questionnaire completion.
From here trained consultants will be able to discuss and illuminate all aspects of the report and provide clients with detailed feedback on their profile.
