Yes. Certifying and empowering your trainers, facilitators and coaches is our strength!
We can customize certification to best fit your needs using onsite workshops, offsite coaching and/or online courses. Some of the certification courses are available online now. If a module is not available online, we can conduct the certification through onsite workshops or offsite coaching.
We have 2 types of certification, one for trainers and one for coaches. The Trainer Certification is designed for those who want to deliver workshop sessions to people who have not yet been trained in a module. The Coach Certification is designed for those who want to coach people who have taken a workshop or online course about a module and need to apply it to their work. If a person needs flexibility to both train and coach others, we recommend obtaining both certifications.
Each certification program includes extensive resources such as: downloadable videos, PPT slides, workbooks, exercise materials and more.

Now, all of this experience is available to you, so you can "innovate your way" and thrive in these complex times.
We're focused on you - You have work to do and positive results to produce; it’s our job to make your work more motivating, innovative and easier.
Results oriented - For us innovation is doing things in a new, better or different way and producing a positive benefit; that’s our passion and purpose in everything we do.

Integrated and coherent - Our models, processes and tools have a common language and understanding, so you can feel confident that each time you engage in a VCI course, it will reinforce what you've already learned and put into practice.
Values centered - Human values, the positive qualities of good character found in all cultures across time, are the energizing ingredients for the what, why and how of innovation — and the foundation of all of our programs.
Relentlessly researching and innovating - We’re actively advancing the field of innovation with the latest thought in Innovation Enablement paradigms while simultaneously innovating our own models to stay on the leading-edge.
