Get Qualified in SDI

We will enable you to go solo in Relationship Awareness facilitation

We won’t be asking you to jump out of aeroplanes but we will be working with you to enable you to leap into the exciting and rewarding area of Relationship Awareness. We’ll work with you to help you use the SDI and other Relationship Awareness tools to make a difference to individuals, teams and organisations that you work for or with. We will:

  • Give you in-depth knowledge and the chance to apply the learning in a practical way through our two-day qualification workshop
  • Give you a variety of support materials to help with delivery once you have left the course
  • Be available to give telephone, web conference or face-to-face support when delivering or designing programmes or sessions
  • Work with you to help you move toward advanced delivery techniques

SDI Certification Process

The SDI Certification Process has three key steps and will provide participants with advanced facilitation skills and access to the full suite of Relationship Awareness® tools. To help ensure the complete, accurate and ethical use of the SDI® assessments and Relationship Awareness Theory, Personal Strengths Publishing, Inc. requires that facilitators complete, at minimum, Level 1 SDI Qualification to gain access to SDI self-assessments.

Public or In-House Qualification and Certification Workshops

Participants can either attend a public workshop to achieve Qualification and Certification, or organisations can arrange for us to run an in-house workshop for a minimum of 6 participants.

We offer an in-house service where both Level 1 and Level 2 workshops are facilitated at your centre or a location that you arrange. 
There are significant savings available for in-house programmes; please contact us for more information on this or on the public and in-house options generally.
