Enhance your understanding of the Mayer, Salovey, Caruso ability model of Emotional Intelligence. You will be certified to purchase the MSCEIT, provide structured feedback to test takers, and coach them on emotional intelligence.
The 1 1/2 day MSCEIT certification course is facilitated by David Caruso. David is the co-developer of the MSCEIT test, and co-author of the book The Emotionally Intelligent Manager. He is one of the world’s leading experts on emotional intelligence. David has published dozens of articles on the topic of emotional intelligence. This section certifies you on the MSCEIT.
Sometime after lunch on day two, we switch gears. This section of our course allows you to run EI training sessions (but not MSCEIT certification sessions).We give you an in-depth set of slides to run these workshops.
WHAT THE CLASS GETS YOU: You become certified to buy and administer the MSCEIT. Once certified, you set up an account with our test publisher and order assessments from them. Prices vary so look at their Web site for the latest. For the EI Skills section of our course you can develop training sessions on your own and use our materials. (We have an optional participant manual and request that you purchase copies for each participant in your training workshops.)
