Who formed the International Trainers Academy of NLP?

John Grinder, Carmen Bostic St Clair and Michael Carroll formed The International Trainers Academy (ITA) as a way to ensure that NLP Trainers have the highest standard of training, before offering NLP courses to the public. By selecting an ITA trainer you have the assurance that your trainer has been trained and awarded certification as a trainer personally trained by NLP co-creator John Grinder, new code co-developer, Carmen Bostic St Clair and Michael Carroll.


The mission of the ITA is to continually improve the quality of NLP Training on offer to the NLP public by ensuring our member Trainers have themselves received the highest quality NLP Trainers Training and testing, and that member trainers are committed to continually develop and enhance their own NLP skills.
John Grinder, is keen to ensure his intentions when co-creating the field are maintained and the integrity of NLP is preserved for future NLP generations to be build upon. This is what John has to say about his personal motives in forming the ITANLP.

John Grinder says:

“I as the co-creator of NLP and the New Code and Carmen as the co-developer of the New code have carefully selected Michael Carroll our partner to establish and operate the International Trainers Academy of NLP.
The present existing organizations and associations purporting to represent quality standards in NLP are from my point of view seriously lacking in precisely that avowed purpose – namely, the setting and maintenance of quality requirements in the training and transfer of the patterning of NLP to students seeking mastery in the field.”
