What is the process for certification and licensing?


Certification and content license are separate. Certification applies to the individual trainer. License fees apply to an occurrence of a workshop. You can hold a certification without ever licensing content. You can’t license content unless you have a certified trainer to deliver it.

If you are a consultant who is selling workshops to clients, then you will likely invest in your own certification. Then when you deliver Partnerwerks content you will pay the license fee to Partnerwerks and pass it through to your client in your workshop fee.

If you are an employee of a company where you will be delivering, you may get the employer to sponsor your certification. Then the employer will usually pay the license fee.
