Why Become a Program Provider?

At some point in your career you were introduced to the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator® (MBTI®) assessment and became intrigued with psychological type. Perhaps you first learned more about yourself and then realized the positive impact type knowledge can have on others. Whatever the cause of your inspiration, you decided to embark on a quest to learn more.

Almost all MBTI professionals, those who have dedicated themselves to becoming experts on the topic, teach others about type. Their teaching may take the form of writing books, engaging in research, or offering training programs where people learn to apply type to everyday life.

If you are an MBTI expert who offers training programs on topics such as,

  • Introducing Type in Organizations
  • Using Type in Family Dynamics
  • Team Building
  • Time Management
  • Leadership Development
  • Communication Skills
  • Conflict Management or
  • Diversity Training

...then you are an MBTI professional who should seek approval from the MBTI® Master Practitioner Credential Program for the programs you publicly offer.

When an MBTI advanced training program is accepted, continuing education credits (CEs) are granted to those participants who are actively pursuing the MBTI® Master Practitioner credential.

There are many reasons to become a provider of approved programs. With acceptance, you:

  • Expand opportunities to pass your insight and knowledge on to a new generation of practitioners, as well as to other experts
  • Become a part of a network of MBTI professionals who are committed to the pursuit of excellence and ethical use of the Indicator
  • Have the opportunity to see the types of programs others are offering and help meet market demand or differentiate your program accordingly
  • Gain increased marketing power for your programs

With every person you train the quality of MBTI education and use improves, making the assessment more valuable to practitioners and clients alike.

Choose How to Become a Program Provider and submit one of your programs for approval as a continuing education offering for the MBTI® Master Practitioner Credential Program.
