Attendance at a Trainer's Training do not guarantee certification, and certification does not generally happen after participation in one’s first Trainer’s Training.
When at a live Trainer’s Training, anyone interested in working toward certification as a Radical Honesty Trainer is invited to declare that they’d like to be on the path to become a Trainer, and would like to officially be considered a Trainer Candidate. And at a Trainer’s Training, Candidates (who have been on the path and imagine they are ready) are welcome to declare that they’d like to be certified as a Trainer. Both of these declarations will lead to a conversation and feedback session within the group of peers, and with Radical Honesty Founder, Brad Blanton, Master Trainer, Taber Shadburne, and a group of Certified Trainers.
Candidacy and certification are given on a case by case basis, based on personal attainments (completion of past events with key people, quality of contact, etc.) and attainments within the Radical Honesty Training Program, as determined by Brad Blanton, Taber Shadburne, and Certified Trainers, and are only given in-person, at live Trainer’s Trainings.
