(Read reviews)

Get certified to administer the world's most widely used personality assessment.

Apply the MBTI® tool to empower employees, enhance team productivity and reduce conflict. AMA’s newly updated MBTI program is a highly interactive, four-day workshop that focuses on the key MBTI applications of team building, leadership and individual development. It features a hands-on, practical approach that prepares you to professionally and ethically administer and interpret the MBTI instrument—immediately upon your return to work.

This seminar also includes training in MBTI Step II, which provides a more richly textured picture of type and behavior using 20 additional facets. Step II shows how each person expresses their type uniquely and individually.

Our seminar leaders add value to every course not only through their practical, action-oriented presentations-but also through the expert advice they offer and the opportunities throughout the seminar session for the one-on-one mentoring critical to effective learning.

The AMA faculty...is the AMA advantage!
