MBTI® Step II Certification

Go beyond four-letter type

MBTI Step II reveals the nuances of each of the 16 MBTI personality types. This programme is the next step for anyone who is already MBTI Step I certified.


MBTI logoPeople are unique, and that’s why those with the same four-letter MBTI personality type can be very different. Behind any given MBTI type is an individual with their own composition of preferences.

The MBTI Step II assessment looks at the ‘facets’ behind every preference pair, to reveal how an individual’s personality type is really composed. The two-day MBTI Step II Virtual Certification programme shows how you can apply deeper insight to tackle key challenges in organisations, such as communication and decision-making. Post-course, the MBTI Step II Knowledge Bank will provide continued practical support to help you to make the most of your training (see below for contents).

One of the many benefits of becoming MBTI certified is receiving Continuing Coach Education (CCE) hours for the work you put in. Both in-person and virtual certification sessions are accredited by the International Coaching Federation (ICF). See the available hours. The self-guided MBTI Step II Certification is not currently accredited.





Course duration

2 days live virtual training, including group and individual activities in the virtual classroom

Before the course, you will complete an online MBTI Step II assessment and online learning modules (~3 hours of pre-work). During the two-day workshop you’ll engage in varied interactive classroom sessions interwoven with further online self-study modules, reading and reflection activities.

(Equivalent to 18 CPD hours)

Step II offers a real learning and development journey for teams.

Learning approach

Whether delivered virtually or face to face, this programme embraces the value of experiential learning throughout. Supported by a highly interactive training platform – including features such as break out rooms, interactive whiteboards, voting and chat functions – you’ll never feel ’stuck at your screen’. As with our in-person programmes, this virtual workshop is designed to accommodate different learning styles and involve reflection, different types of interaction and self-study, with regular breaks to help manage your concentration. 

The course is delivered by experienced MBTI practitioners who are both expert trainers and coaches to participants. During the course, you will practice your feedback skills and receive feedback to build your toolkit and your confidence.
