    It was a big pleasure to be a student of this online Mental Trainer course. It was very interesting to read all the material that was provided in this course, and I enjoyed the practical part as well. I gave this course my very best and put a great effort to all my assignments and other exercises. The best part is that it felt so natural and easy to understand and implement all the learnings.  – A. Gordan, Leader, Mental Trainer

    The experience of the course is that it’s a good way to work step by step. It’s an effective way to complete the course. I work as a personal trainer, so the use of mental training is quite relevant. If a client has a problem/case can mental training be a useful tool to help the client fix the problem/case. I can use mental training to be an even better conversation partner for my close ones. The tasks and exercises felt good and relevant, so I’m happy with the content I’ve been working with. I am happy about my knowledge in mental training. I feel I have a good platform to further develop my mental training skills. – E. Jensen, Mental trainer, Personal Trainer

    Veldig fornøyd med kurset og opplevelsen av kurset, som en som har hatt vansker med læring alle mine år på skolen så var dette en liten selvtillitsboost, det har nok litt med at det virkelig er noe jeg interesserer meg for også, men fremdeles er opplevelsen av kurset og dets oppbygging og oversiktlighet veldig bra.  – K. Naley, Mental Trainer, Coach

    I have had a very good experience with the Mental Trainer course. The E-books have been easy to read and understand with easy, clear and accessible material. The course have been well structured, both learning wise, but also the logistic of the website. I like that the assignments have been open to reflection and interpretation. I think the tasks /exercises have been good. They have been very open and I have always had the option to write them or do a video/audio.  – A.Steirud, Musician, Mental Trainer

    Jeg synes dette har vært et svært bra kurs, og synes det har gitt meg faglig påfyll og motivasjon både privat og profesjonelt for å fortsette som coach. Jeg er veldig fornøyd med oppgavene underveis. Jeg synes vekslingen mellom tekst, oppgaver og lydfiler har vært bra, da jeg liker variasjon. Jeg var sertifisert Business & NLP Coach, Helsecoach og Kostholdscoach på forhånd, i tillegg til at jeg har interessert meg mye for mental trening så og si hele livet. Jeg bruker dette både bevisst og ubevisst på daglig basis både på meg selv, familien (kanskje spesielt viktig mht barna), og som fotballtrener.  – C. Vebner, Mental Trener, Fotballcoach, Profesjonell Coach, Helsecoach  

    The overall experience of the online Mental Trainer course has been wonderful and beneficial in many ways. The content of the course was quite thorough and well paced. It also provided a great foundation and framework to build upon, no matter what one’s level of knowledge was when starting the program. My level of knowledge has expanded ten folds in the duration of this course and has sealed a sense of professionalism into my work as a coach/ mental trainer.  – I.Mohideen, Mental Trainer, Life Coach, Mindset Coach

    I found the course inspiring and I am more motivated to get started now than I was before the course. At the start of the course, I had almost no knowledge. I have put a lot of effort into the course. I found the contents interesting and easy to learn (easy language). I can use Mental Training to deal with difficult colleagues, and I can use mental training as my career. I can use Mental Training when I am competing with my horse, to up my game and perform even better. I found the tasks/exercises interesting. I am very satisfied with my knowledge at the end of the course. – C. Nyblom, Mental Trainer, Leader, Coach

    I am very happy with the course. I got a deeper understanding of Mental Training and learn useful exercises and how to change your thoughts and see things from another perspective and get unconsciousness to adapt which was very interesting. The slides were very informative. A nice setup of the course. I am very satisfied with the tasks and the way it gives me freedom to interpret what I have learned.  – M. Farsund, Mental Trainer, Leader

    The overall experience is that I have worked through a course made by experienced and professional trainersI have used Mental Training for personal development both personally and in my career. I have gained confidence, changed my lifestyle and mindset. I will use Mental Training to help others, to motivate and spread positivity in my workspace and career. I can guide and help my family through life’s challenges, help them to create good habits, to take better decisions and to be a good role model. I am satisfied with the tasks and how the course is built. Mental training is essential for make lasting and big changes in your life. – M. Eriksen, Mental Trainer, CEO, Consultant

    Strukturen passet meg godt, med oppdelte temaer; kunnskap og oppgaver. Innholdet var fantastisk spennende og noe jeg håper og tror at jeg vil kunne bruke i både med mine kolleger og familie. Nyttig på jobb: Jeg kan bruke det jeg har lært både i relasjon med kandidater som søker på stillinger og som rollen som salgsansvarlig (inkl. salgscoaching).
    – H. Einerkjær, Salgsansvarlig, Mental Trener, Business & NLP Coach, Certified Professional Coach

    Den totale opplevelsen av kurset er veldig bra. Jeg synes at jeg har fått godt utbytte av kurset og det har gitt meg en grundig innføring i mental trener stoffet, samtidig som det er lettfattelig og godt presentert. Jeg tenker å starte eget firma som skal tilby bedriftsrådgivning og i den sammenheng vil jeg kunne bruke mine kunnskaper som mental trener. Jeg er svært fornøyd med NOCNA, de driver sine kurs på en seriøs og profesjonell måte. – L. Mittet, Business Coach, NLP Coach, Mental Trener
