Certification

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 

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 sufficient 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 workgroup. 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 in a video meeting with one of our Trainer of Trainers. The last step of your certification is to report your results back to the workgroup and have a final feedback session with your trainer to discuss any difficulties and learnings. As all of these steps are completed you become a certified GDQ consultant.

Cost: 30.000 SEK.
