The Institute's certifications are recognized by the market as the standard in DISC training
The International DISC Institute places a strong emphasis on ensuring the quality and integrity of DISC training through a comprehensive certification system. This commitment to excellence is reflected in the four distinct levels of certification offered by the Institute. Unlike traditional educational bodies, the Institute does not directly provide courses. Instead, it focuses on certifying the training delivered by professionals and companies that have rigorously validated their courses with the Institute.
This approach ensures that those seeking DISC training receive instruction that meets the highest standards of quality and effectiveness, as set by the Institute. By certifying a range of training programs across various levels, the Institute maintains a robust framework that upholds the principles of DISC methodology while fostering an environment of continuous learning and professional development. This system not only reinforces the credibility and reliability of DISC training but also provides learners with the assurance that their educational journey is guided by the highest benchmarks of excellence in the field.

To obtain Gold-level certifications and beyond, you must acquire the number of badges indicated at each certification level.
For every hour you spend providing feedback to an evaluatee on their report, explaining report outcomes or DISC results such as job profiles or group charts to others (like HR department clients), you earn one badge. In other words, 1 hour equals 1 badge.
For every hour you spend teaching the DISC methodology to others, whether in specific DISC courses (like the Bronze level), DISC-specific modules within other courses, or in courses that are based on DISC (where DISC is a key element), such as a sales course based on DISC, you earn 1 badge if the course or module is specifically about DISC, and half a badge if DISC is a key element but not the central theme of the course.
Every hour of training you receive specifically on DISC topics or its application to different areas equates to 1 badge. For every 10 hours of training received that facilitates the application of DISC, such as training in coaching, communication, team building, feedback, etc., you earn 1 badge.
Each article related to DISC and published in any media outlet external to the writer corresponds to one badge (personal blog articles are not accepted).
The “DISC Corporate Seal” is a prestigious certification that signifies a company’s integration of the DISC methodology into its selection and development processes, as well as in the interaction and communication between employees. This seal confirms that the organization not only understands but actively applies DISC principles, ensuring a more effective and insightful approach to team dynamics, communication, and employee development. Having trained personnel in DISC methodology, the company demonstrates a commitment to advanced behavioral understanding, which is crucial in today’s fast-paced and diverse workplace environments. This certification is a mark of excellence, showcasing the company’s dedication to fostering a productive and harmonious work culture.
Owning the DISC Seal for Businesses elevates a company’s prestige in the corporate world. It serves as a testament to their progressive approach to human resource management and organizational development. Companies with this seal are seen as leaders in adopting scientifically-backed methods for improving team interactions and individual performance. This not only enhances their reputation among peers and potential clients but also makes them more attractive to top talent who value working in environments that prioritize personal growth and effective communication. In essence, the DISC Corporate Seal is not just a symbol of achievement but a beacon of forward-thinking corporate culture.
The DISC Corporate Seal can be awarded at the discretion of the Institute, or can also be requested by companies interested in obtaining it.
