Narrative Enneagram Teacher Certification

After completing our Foundational Courses, students may choose to pursue the Narrative Enneagram Professional Training Program (EPTP) Teacher Track or Practitioner Track.

The Teacher track is designed for those who want to learn to teach the Narrative Enneagram to groups. This training includes in-depth practice leading panels in the Narrative Tradition, feedback and support to cultivate and improve your teaching skills.

The Teacher Track includes the following courses and trainings:

  • Typing Process (also included in the Practitioner Track)
  • Teacher Training
  • Internship and Certification
While I officially certified three years ago, taking the training again increased my content knowledge and strengthened my teaching skills through a series of rigorous practice exercises. Renée Rosario and Peter O’Hanrahan provided invaluable feedback in addition to lessons learned through their many years of experience. I feel more capable and better equipped to teach larger class sizes as the number of participants grows.

Typing Process

24 hours

This experiential training teaches you how to conduct individual typing interviews using the inquiry method in order to help interviewees discover their potential type.

Step-by-step you will learn how to conduct typing interviews to assist newcomers to the Enneagram in determining their type. Modules include:

  • Differentiating one type from another
  • Non-verbal aspects of type
  • Knowledge of your own biases in conducting interviews

The training culminates in a rare hands-on opportunity to practice your skills by interviewing volunteers from the community, with feedback from instructors.
