EQ 360


EQ 360 certification is included in the EQ-i 2.0 certification workshop. If you are certified on the EQ-i 2.0, the EQ 360 Certification Workshop will prepare you to administer the EQ 360 and provide feedback on the results.

How do you get certified on the EQ 360?

CESD offers four options:

1. If you are already certified on the old version of the EQ-i and the EQ 360, then you can attend a two-day session to learn about the new EQ-i 2.0 and EQ 360 at one low cost. No examination is required. Call CESD at 973.625.5511 to ask about special alumni re-attendance rates.

2. If you are certified on the old version of the EQ-i but not the EQ 360, then you can attend a two-day session to learn about the new EQ-i 2.0 and become certified to use the EQ 360. You will take only the EQ 360 portion of the exam and will qualify for special pricing. Call CESD at 973.625.5511 for more information.

3. If you have not been certified on the EQ-i or EQ-i 2.0, then you can attend the workshop for both instruments and take an exam that covers the material for both the EQ-i 2.0 and EQ 360.

4. If you are certified on the new EQ-i 2.0 but not the EQ 360, you can attend the EQ 360 stand-alone certification. See description below.
