The Certification Process 

de Bono Thinking Systems and The de Bono Group is entrusting selected instructors with intellectual properties of great value and asking them to represent the creator of these properties, Dr. Edward de Bono, in a way that will sustain the personal reputation, credibility, and authority he has established over 25 years of work in 45 countries around the world. Therefore, the selection process requires proof of professional accomplishment, personal integrity, firm commitment, as well as adequate opportunity to widely and effectively disseminate the programs. To meet this need, de Bono Thinking Systems has designed a certification system that will identify and develop only qualified instructors. (de Bono Thinking Systems is the world distributor and publisher of Edward de Bono Thinking Methods.)
