Why use a Practicum process for certification?

Most great certification programs are delivered in big group formats (anywhere from 40 to 200 people per group) and focus on ensuring you receive excellent content. Why does this certification program take a practicum approach?


After training and certifying hundreds of coaches and change facilitators over the years, we learned that the best way to acquire mastery of Neuroscience-based change models, is through individual experience.

Using change facilitation models isn't like using an external tool or device. It is the type of mastery in which the facilitator is partially the vehicle of changeGroups have many advantages of course. They are simply limited, by design, in terms of how much space they offer to explore where YOU meet the principles and techniques. For that reason, knowing how to use Neuroscience-based models effectively often requires shifting from learning the models in theory to learning them in practice.

The KCI Certification in Applied Neuroscience is a two part practicum - experience-based, hands-on,1-on-1 coaching and mentoring process with a KCI Certifying Partner:  


  • Part 1: Experience a transformational, step-by-step neuroscience-based coaching process. Get an intuitive, implicit, first-hand understanding of the transformative power of Neuroscience-based models. Experience what it is like to define Unlearning Goals, take Neuroscience-based assessments, unlearn and relearn response patterns to better achieve your goals (this will allow you to be far better positioned to support others through change!).

  • Part 2: Learn to apply 10+ neuroscience-based models and overcome difficult change challenges. Master using a step-by-step neuroscience-based coaching process, working with a client while getting 1-on-1 mentoring from a KCI Certifying Partner in real-time, to complete your certification.

Different programs in this space vary by the number of participants, specific models covered, duration, and price.

Additional levels of certification

Since brains only come in individual units (one per person), any certification in Neuroscience has to first start with the understanding of how change roles out at the individual level. However, KCI offers 3 additional levels of certification (these are shorter, taking 2-3 months to complete, and are based on applications mastered during the above foundational Certification in Applied Neuroscience): 

  • Neuroscience-Based Models and Tools for Coaching "Non-Coachable" Individuals.

  • Applications of Neuroscience-Based Models to Team Development.

  • Neuroscience-Based Models and Tools for Organizational Development and Change at Scale.
