Level 1 Train-the-Trainer
Certification Training Program

...for teachers, coaches, consultants, facilitators, trainers, and thought leaders/experts.

Why you should be in the room, or online, for this program.

Have you ever found yourself in any of these situations?

  • Frustrated with people at work or at home?
  • Wondering what people around you are thinking? or
  • Scratching your head in confusion about the way people around you behave?

Chances are your answer to at least one of these questions is 'yes'.

Humans are described as "individuals" for a reason. We are all wired in different ways. So, it is not surprising that we behave in different ways. Figuring out what makes others tick can be challenging. Figuring out what makes you tick can be equally difficult.


What if you could use a human GPS as a guide to connect with and build relationships with others — by design rather than chance? What if you could gain insights into your own behavior and then modify it to get along better in different situations? Wouldn’t life be better and easier? If, the answer to any of these questions is yes, the unique DISC Behavioural Studies - Level 1 Train-The-Trainer Certification Program is for you.

Get Trained on the Best Tools and Insights from DHC.

This unique program will give you the tools and insights you need to deal with others effectively and to heighten your own self-awareness. In the space of two days, you will learn how to:

  • Cut to the core of human actions and interactions and draw conclusions
  • Use your conclusions to gain true understanding and
  • Build on understanding to achieve positive and productive communication.

Equip yourself for success in all your relationships


You will start your DISC training by learning why people often behave the way they do. Then, you will learn how to apply key behavioural insights to understand and deal with human behavior. You will walk away equipped to make a positive impact on your relationships, whether they are professional or personal.


During Level 1, you will cover the DISC Model of Human Behavior. This framework is based on the work of William Marston, a psychologist and inventor who developed DISC theory in the early 20th century. Marston argued that people largely behave in predictable patterns. He illustrated his theory with a chart that showed basic personality profiles divided among four quadrants. Today, people still rely on Marston’s ideas to understand themselves as well as to analyze and respond to how others think, feel and act.

Some Testimonials From Our Happy Clients

I think this may have been the most high-value workshops I have ever attended. JJ Brun is such a master at his craft. I was SO impressed, inspired and I learned to much...thanks JJ for an amazing 3 days!

S&L Training Solutions Inc. & President-Elect of the Global Speakers Federation

DHC Training Solutions not only met our expectations, they in fact EXCEED ON ALL OF THEM!

JJ…where to start? What a gift you have given me. The gift of knowledge, the gift of self-discovery, the gift of opportunity. The etiquette consultant in me says that this is one that it's definitely OK to re-gift. In the past I have been in courses for several months with the same people and never felt a connection like I have in the past three days of certification. Yes, the subject matter and the openness contributed greatly, but it was the facilitation that made it happen. Thank you! I am looking forward to our next chat. The possibilities are endless, with much gratitude.

Suzanne Nourse

The opening day insight into the DISC Model of Human Behaviour made it clear how beneficial this is in communicating with others and in understanding the actions of others. This will be useful in my teaching of young children and in relating to their parents. The information is captivating – sticking in one’s mind long after the presentation. Realizing that everyone has his or her own unique blended style…this approach is not a label. It is a catalyst to bringing about effective partnerships personally and professionally.

President/Founder Music for Your Children

I am involved in a million activities and cannot complete any of them successfully all by myself. I need people - I need to understand them and they need to understand me in order to enhance productivity. My boss and my staff will read my profile. I hope to be able to read theirs someday. Overall excellent!

Fred Jardine

Senior Program Manager, Lockheed Martin Canada

Through JJ’s training, I have significantly increased my ability to understand and identify different personality types. The improved communications results are outstanding. The personality profiling skills enables me to speak and relate to any person as if I were able to communicate in their native language. Using the techniques presented in training, it has allowed me to strengthen my own personal skills and better understand the various skills of people I deal with daily on both a professional or personal level.

David Mercer

Commander (Navy) Canadian Force

This is the best investment as a team – The DISC Model of Human Behaviour allowed for us to learn about people in a fun and practical way.  Discovering these personality style traits helped us better connect as a team.  It helped to understand our own personality styles and of those around us, providing tips and insights on ways to connect better based on these styles. It truly was an insightful experience, one that left my team wanting more.  I definitely recommend this valuable training – and JJ is by far a true master in the field of human behaviour.
