Facilitation kits are available for each of our DiSC profiles; however, many professional trainers find it beneficial to add a certification credential. The knowledge gained during certification will help you customize and add value to your own training programs.
Certification allows you to
- gain expertise in the Everything DiSC model and supporting research
- customize an Everything DiSC program to meet specific participant needs
- navigate challenging scenarios that could arise during a workshop or coaching session
- create strategies to promote a DiSC-based culture
Certification is available online for Everything DiSC Workplace® and is delivered by expert trainers from Wiley, the publisher of DiSC. Workplace certification is also available in-person at Wiley's Education Center in Minneapolis, Minnesota.
We also offer Wiley's Essentials training for those who don't need a credential but want in-depth understanding of the DiSC model and the Everything DiSC profiles.
Certification for DiSC Classic is no longer available.

Oh my gosh, we learned so much. Even people who were familiar with DiSC felt like they were better equipped to administer it. I think they were surprised by how much they were learning because some of them had known about DiSC for 20 years.

Frequently asked questions about DiSC certification
No. We recommend certification, but it is not required. We also offer facilitation kits for Everything DiSC profiles to support trainers and facilitators. In addtion, we offer Essentials to introduce trainers to the entire suite of DiSC profiles and reports.
In-person classroom training was suspended in 2020. No future dates have been announced by Wiley, the publisher of Everything DiSC and provider of the certification.
If missing a session is unavoidable, you can make up a single collaborative session. You will still be required to do all the work and present it to the trainer before gaining access to the the final exam. If you miss more than one session, you will not be able to continue the course; you will need to repurchase the training-only portion of the certification.
No. Certification will make you a better facilitator by teaching you more about the Everything DiSC® model, theory, and research. You will also practice your skils via live virtual classroom sessions and field assignments.
At this time, we only offer the certification for Everything DiSC Workplace. If you want to understand all the profiles, we recommend purchasing the Essentials training. If any additional certifications become available, we'll announce it in our newsletter. (You can sign up for our newsletter at the bottom of this page.)
No. There are several assessments offered by others that reference the DISC model, but we only offer Everything DiSC profiles and certification. If you have a DISC certification offered through another source (e.g., not through Wiley or its Authorized Partners), it will not prepare you to facilitate using Everything DiSC profiles. The research and testing behind Everything DiSC is why we sell (and use) these products.
