Advanced Public Speaking Certification Course

Introduction

ONLINE Advanced Public Speaking Certification Course

  • Don't be misled by other programs padded out to 300 hours - this industry is self-regulating and the schools are ultimately businesses
  • Steve G. Jones strips out all the unnecessary time wasting & just presents to you all the information you need to practice safely, successfully and professionally
  • By completing this course, you will also have lifetime support from Steve G. Jones and the American Union of NLP

This advanced course is designed to follow the Basic Public Speaking Certification Course Dr. Steve G. Jones also offers. It's an ideal opportunity for anyone with limited public speaking experience and knowledge of public speaking fundamentals to take their oration abilities to the next level.

During this course, Dr. Steve will reveal many of the exact same techniques master public speakers use to build massive followings of motivated supporters.

At the end of the course, your ability as a public speaker will be tested with a multiple choice exam and 5 minute recorded speech component you'll submit for Dr. Steve for review. After your Advanced Certification is complete, you'll receive certification from the AUNLP as a Certified Advanced Public Speaker.

ADVANCED PUBLIC SPEAKING Certification faqs:

Q: Will I be properly trained if all I take is your online Advanced Public Speaking Certification program?
A: Ideally a Public Speaker would be trained in a classroom setting with an instructor physically present. Unfortunately, this luxury is not practical for many people. When we factor in airfare, hotel, time away from work and family, etc. the costs both monetary and otherwise quickly add up. For this reason, many institutions have turned to online training as a viable alternative to meeting modern day needs. In fact, Columbia, Harvard, and Cornell have extensive online programs. Also, Penn, Dartmouth, and Yale offer online classes. Steve G. Jones, while working on his doctorate in education, extensively studied the online programs offered by Ivy League schools. He then was able to model the public speaking training program to offer a similar level of training. Additionally, in this course, you are encouraged to find a study partner and to practice your techniques on a number of people.
