Certification process

The Tony Buzan Licensed instructor (TBLI) in Mind Mapping is our flagship program.

The certification process comprises 3 phases. At the end of the second phase you'll become a licensed instructor and will join the Buzan Global Instructors Network. Throughout the third phase, Tony Buzan and his faculty of experts will guide and mentor you for becoming a World Class instructor.

The first stage, the onboarding process, is implemented through this Learning Management Platform. You'll learn the Mind Mapping fundamentals so when you arrive to the in-person training, you'll be able to go in-depth into the Mind Mapping laws, syntax and applications, and learn / cross-fertilize best practices with your peers and professors.

During the "after" stage you'll attend a 12-week bootcamp focused on guiding you on how to position and sell your services (Mind Mapping courses and consulting services).
