NZANLP Professional Development Requirements


All Professional Members are required to complete 15 hours of Professional Development per membership year. 


The membership year runs from 1 April to 31 March.

  • NLP related Workshops

  • Assisting on Practitioner, Master Practitioner and Trainer Certification Courses (5 hours may be logged for a full day assisting)

  • Organised NLP Study Groups where there is a prescribed learning objective

  • NLP Conferences
