Certified Behavioral Consultant (CBC)
This DISC certification course is online and self-paced, with a focus on use in business applications, from coaching or consulting to hiring, talent management, sales, and customer service. This option is great for individuals who prefer to learn at their own pace and don’t need access to live webinar-style instruction with a PeopleKeys Master Trainer.
Certified Behavioral Consultant Plus (CBC+)
This option includes the CBC self-paced, online course plus a bonus of two hours of live virtual webinar instruction with PeopleKeys Master Trainer John Schindell. This option is great for learners who prefer to have guided instruction with the ability to ask questions and engage with a live instructor to make the most of your DISC accreditation and learning.
Online DISC Certification Courses
DISC certification provides trainers, coaches, and HR professionals with a deeper understanding of the DISC model and how to best apply it to PeopleKeys DISC and other behavioral assessments in your workplace or practice.
To become a PeopleKeys Certified Behavioral Consultant and gain your DISC certification, you will need to register for either our CBC or CBC+ course. If you prefer to learn independently, pick the CBC. If you would like 2 hours of live training with a PeopleKeys Master Trainer, pick the CBC+.
Both the CBC and CBC+ DISC certification programs consist of 2 levels: Level 1: Introduction to Behavioral Analysis provides an engaging and insightful overview of the history, theory, and applications of DISC behavioral analysis. Level 2: Advanced Behavioral Analysis is designed to follow the Introduction to Behavioral Analysis. This level focuses on case studies and application with an emphasis on different scenarios.
