Only Certified MBI Trainers Are Authorized To Teach Motivation-Based Interviewing Workshops.


The Train-The-Trainer workshop is an intensive, fast-paced, 3 full day certification program designed to equip facilitators to teach motivation-based interviewing. We purposely keep our class size small to maximize learning. Our goal is to set you up for success. To become a Certified MBI Trainer, participants will be required to demonstrate a complete understanding of MBI and a proficiency in presenting the training material. Participants MUST attend an instructor-led workshop sometime PRIOR to attending the Train-The-Trainer workshop, preferably one taught by Carol Quinn. Options include the Onsite MBI Workshop or the Open-To-Public One or Two-Day MBI Workshop held in Delray Beach, Florida. Completing the online MBI training (web course) does not satisfy this prerequisite. Since the class size is small, it is recommended that you register early to ensure availability. This really is a great workshop but don’t take our word for it. View the evaluations from a prior Train-The-Trainer class – View Evaluations (PDF).
