Welcome to the group. It's only just starting and I hope this group
will do just that!

I'm aware of Inspiritive's grad cert (I'm upgrading to it at the moment
- I've not heard of others have you?). I'm not aware of any New Code
trainings taking only a week (well, not any which claim to teach
practitioner level in so short a time).
Other NLP training is another matter entirely!

I wish I knew. Particularly recently, I've seen a lot of stuff in the
NLP community that I don't want to associate myself with, yet doing my
training in New Code NLP is one of the best choices I've made (and why
I started this group!).
At the moment I'm considering actually giving a "history of NLP" on my
handouts, something which explicitly states that NLP has had many
offshoots, that the quality of NLP trainings and practitioners ranges
from excellent to awful, and spells out what to look for if you want
good NLP work or training. I figure there are many people who see a
handout, ask a friend who may have had a good or bad experience, and go
from there. Emphasising quality and New Code at the least gives them
something more to consider before they decide.
What have you (or others) considered?
This is a discussion group for everyone - so ask the group (not me) to
