How can I obtain certification?

In a dedicated two-day workshop and three subsequent supervision sessions, we provide you with in-depth training in the diverse range of possible applications for the KAIROS® Decision Profile. Throughout this training, we place a strong emphasis on the quality of discussion of the results you will carry out with your clients. These sessions should always be meaningful experiences in which the client feels your deep sense of respect and appreciation. Through you, the client learns to understand the relevance of his/her decision-making preferences and recognize their particular strength and singularity.

The certification process

  1. Prior to the certification workshop, you will complete your own KAIROS® Decision Profile online. Shortly afterwards, you will receive an e-mail containing your personal analysis graph and an explanatory handout. This will be followed by a phone session to discuss the results.
  2. The subsequent two-day certification workshop provides you with an in-depth introduction to the professional use of the profile. If there are at least eight participants, this workshop can also be held at your company or for individual groups.
  3. Final certification is awarded upon completion of three supervised profile analysis sessions and a written report. You will then receive access to the website and official authorization to use the tool independently.

The costs

for the certification workshop, the supervision process and the first three profile results analysis sessions amount to

€ 1,750 + 19 % VAT.

Any additional participation costs (e.g. refreshments, etc.) will be charged and invoiced separately.
After the certification workshop, you will be provided with online access to the tool and the corresponding access code.

Hints on how to implement the tool in an organizational setting

Quality assurance

We place great importance on lasting, high quality service. To achieve this, regular practice and knowledge sharing are an absolute necessity. We recommend the completion of a minimum of about ten profiles per year. If necessary, we can also provide a one-day refresher workshop. In the near future, we will also be establishing a platform designed specifically for professional knowledge sharing among licensed KAIROS® users.
