Training to Maximize Your PREP Reports

PREP Pro:  Certification for Professionals

PREP-Pro™ Administrator Certification for CORE, the Personal Strengths Profile, Group and Individual Match, Coach Certification

To order the PREP Professional Series Profile Reports, the purchaser must be a certified. To this end, PREP Profile Systems offers PREP-Pro™, the PREP Administrator Certification program.  PREP is a leader in developing practical, easy to implement in-house profile programs resulting in cost effective, in-house selection, training and coaching. The 2 day certification training with standardized pre-work, tests and software practice reports offers organizations a proven, simple way to move beyond consultant dependency to integrate the benefits of PREP in a highly cost-effective manner. 


Some organizations choose to customize the certification delivery.  In these cases, PREP may work directly with its licensed consultants having advanced levels of PREP certification to deliver specialized applications for the client in an integrated approach of “Classroom” and online training.
There are three certification opportunities:

  • Regional “Classroom Training” Certification
  • In-House “Classroom” Certification
  • Online Certification

Regional “Classroom” Certification Programs
These Certifications are scheduled regionally and coordinated by PREP on a periodic basis. Individual companies can receive standard discounts for sending multiple employees. Previously certified Administrators may attend to refresh or expand their understanding of the instruments and learn more about company and corporate needs and possible applications.

See the Calendar of Events or contact PREP for a schedule of Certification trainings near you.

In-House (Private) “Classroom” Certification Programs
The Administrator Certification training can be customized for in-house management and team development workshops. It is a hands-on course for administering, interpreting and applying the profiles for interviewing, selecting, hiring, team, coaching and management development.  This can be combined with a Certified Licensed Professional Consultant’s special applications training to offer the client even greater benefits and integrations with organizational programs.

Online Certification Programs
PREP offers individuals the opportunity to become certified in a mentor-based, one-on-one or small group online venue.  PREP uses a unique and personal approach to its training. Study materials, PowerPoint slides, section tests are made available online. A personal PREP Certification coach, who reviews and comments on your Section Tests, is available via email and phone is available for online certifications.  Difficult questions on interpretations are forwarded to the research team for timely response for student certification timelines.
