The goal and emphasis of the BG5 Consultant Certification training is on analysis, synthesis, and presentation. We’ll combine the foundation material from the BG5 Foundation Course with the actual methodologies you’ll use with your clients, as well as explore the interactions and dynamics of Unified Group Analysis. Upon completion of the BG5 Consultant Certification Course, you’ll have the knowledge, tools, resources, and experience needed to work effectively with your clients to guide and support them in their individual careers and businesses.

The BG5 Business Consultant Certification Program is 3 Semesters.
