Want to Become a Birkman Advanced Certified Professional?
We offer Advanced status to Birkman Professionals that meet the guidelines for that level. Typically, Birkman Advanced Professionals have been Birkman Certified for 2+ years, completed 25+ conversations, and acquired 30+ hours of professional development after certification. Part of that professional development must be one of our Advanced training series classes.
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 wells 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.
Want to Become a Birkman Master Certified Professional?
At the top of the of the Birkman Certified Professionals spectrum is our Master designation. These are individuals who have gone above and beyond in learning how to use The Birkman Method in very difficult, sensitive situations. The requirements to be eligible for status as a Master Birkman Certified Professional require at least 5 years of Birkman Certification, or a professional degree in a related field, such as a MS in Psychology or a PhD in Education. Candidates should also have 50+ hours of professional development and have completed 50 Birkman conversations.
The advanced professional development program is completed with our session The Science of The Birkman Method, 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.
