All of us are interested in finding out more about ourselves and others. Our natural curiosity of the world clearly applies to our role in it and the ways we respond to it. DISC is a behavioral model developed by Dr. William Marston in the 1920s intended to identify and categorize how we respond to our environment and each other. The DISC model shows one’s intrinsic behavioral style and one’s learned style. The strength of the model rests not only in its ability to measure and categorize observable behaviors and emotions but also in its capacity to provide the necessary information for each of us to exercise more flexibility with a variety of people and situations.
This certification course is designed to teach and equip participants to facilitate the CPLE four-hour DISC Overview course. As the four-hour course includes the administration of our DISC 17 Behavioral Self-Assessment, participants in the certification course will learn how to administer the instrument, analyze student results, and provide specific feedback and consultation on student profiles. Participants will demonstrate proficiency providing this feedback in both a one-on-one and class setting. Thus, the course’s purpose of teaching participants how to teach the DISC Overview course will encompass both an exploration into the specificity of the DISC model as well as the tenets and nuances of adult education.
Audience The DISC model is about human connectivity – better communications, lessened conflict, increased tolerance, and greater leadership and influence. While the course is designed to teach those who intend to facilitate the model with their own agencies, the course will be of value and interest to anyone looking to better understand themselves and others.
Duration The certification course is a fun but intensive 2½ day program including evenings as well as study/preparation before and after classes.

Costs The CPLE understands most of our participants represent public safety organizations with limited budgets and resources and a strong commitment to a sense of fiscal responsibility to their communities. Our pricing is a fraction of what you find from a host of other certification courses...and we believe we do it better! We organize our classes around two models.
The first is the single contract. An organization, association, or state government contracts with the CPLE to fund the event. The fixed rate is $12,000 for every 15 students. Additional materials and facilitators are brought in based on 15 student increments. We've taught DISC classes with 15, 30, 45, 60, and 90 students...we can accommodate whatever student capacity needs you have.
The second model is based on individual registrations. The CPLE and a host agency offer the certification course with open registration. The individual participant tuition is $995.00 in this model. FBI LEEDA members enjoy an additional 10% discount!
Compare our tuition costs with other companies charging $5,000 for two-day courses. We know your budget will be pleased as well as your sense of value with the instruction and experience you will have.
We're adding new venues around the country and will populate those dates and venues here as they solidify.
