To become a certified GDQ consultant with the right to use the GDQ as an instrument when working with groups you can attend our online certification course or one of our 4-day workshops in classroom form.
Our online certification process (Available from October 2017)
The online certification consists of different modules and is available in English. With the help of your textbook Group Processes – A Developmental Perspective by Susan A Wheelan and the test-manual you will complete one module at a time before moving on to the next. Each module finishes with a quiz to make sure you have attained a decent level of knowledge to maintain a qualitative and ethical use of the GDQ. As you reach the last module you will conduct a real GDQ measurement on a work group. You will administer the measurement with the help of our online test system after which you interpret the results and plan for suitable interventions in an oral exam conducted over Skype with one of our Trainer of Trainers. The last step of your certification is to report your results back to the work group and have a last feedback session with your trainer to discuss any difficulties and learnings. As all of these steps are completed you become a certified GDQ consultant.
Our 4-day workshop to become certified
The live GDQ training consists of 2 + 2 days during which participants learn about the theory and research behind the GDQ and conduct a real GDQ measurement on a work group. They score and interpret results manually and present them to the other participants on day 3 and 4. Read more about our upcoming trainings below. We currently give live trainings, in Swedish, in Stockholm and Gothenburg in collaboration with Henrysson, Åkerlund & Sjöberg AB and Treatis AB, in Norwegian, in Oslo in collaboration with Alaric AS. We also arrange in-house GDQ trainings for organisations. There are also trainings organised by other companies. Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org to learn more.
