EQ-i2.0 / EQ360 Certification

Registration Complete!

Become certified to deliver emotional intelligence assessments.  Certification is available online, in-person or in-house. 


Train the trainer program to become licensed and certified to deliver emotional intelligence assessments (EQ-i2.0 & EQ360) for individuals and teams. Reports are designed with clear instructions, with a Client report and Coach report to guide the debrief.

While technical and professional competence is essential in the workplace, emotional intelligence is a better predictor of success.  Emotional Intelligence is a set of emotional and social skills that influence the way we perceive and express ourselves, develop and maintain social relationships, cope with challenges, and use emotional information in an effective and meaningful way.

Program includes:

  • Individual Leadership Report assessment and 1:1 debrief with a certified executive coach.
  • Four (1/2 days), or 2 full day instructor-led virtual learning.
  • Copies of all curriculum and supplemental materials on the private LOGIN section of our website. Recorded session available for playback. 
  • Exam Tip Sheet!
  • EQ Edge book.
  • Free account with MHS to administer EQi-2.0 and EQ360 assessments which includes online user guide, marketing, and resource materials. 
  • Continuing education credits with the International Coaching Federation [9.25 core, 6.75 resource], and Canadian and American Psychological Associations.

Post certification support and learning included:

  • Our online monthly newsletter with tips and current information on EI in business and academia.  
  • Friendly ongoing support as you learn to use the assessment and navigate the system.
