Are you Birkman Certified and ready to take the power of Birkman to the next level with our advanced professional development training program? Whether you’re driven to develop skills you’ll use in a specialized practice with your clients, or want to become more familiar with the behavior scales and data in The Birkman Method, our advanced training opportunities can help you accelerate your knowledge to empower others.
The Master and Advanced Birkman Certified Professional designations help you stand out within our global network of experts, allowing you to gain a competitive advantage with clients seeking more experienced and knowledgable Birkman coaches and consultants.
Part of your 30+ hours of professional development must be one of our Advanced training series classes. Each class is worth 16 BLCs. You can choose either:
Advanced Interpretation dives deeper into Components and, specifically, the interaction of several Component scoring patterns. The Components are explored in-depth from a social psychology context with core emotional and rational factors identified. We also explore how the Components are identified on the Birkman Map, as well as natural pairings of Components that can be used to bring insight to the conversation when that “natural” pairing is broken.
The other option is Advanced Team Dynamics, where the focus is using Birkman data effectively with groups. More than just “teambuilding,” this is a two-day opportunity to look at specific reports to use in team dysfunction, new leader assimilation, and conflict management with teams.

Part of your 50+ hours of professional development must be obtained through our The Science Behind The Birkman Method, (16 BLCs), which dives deep into the psychology behind the instrument. This is a personal, small session with a former member of the Birkman research staff that will dive deep into the Components, patterns of scoring, and what some of these scales “really” mean. The workshop is an intensive, philosophical look at how Dr. Birkman created the instrument, and how we can use that information in how we share reports with our clients.
