Join Paul Ekman International

Paul Ekman International PLC (PEI) is the company that has been licensed by the Paul Ekman Group as the sole authorized provider of Paul Ekman training in the world. PEI is part of the EIA Group

PEI and EIA’s role is to build on the science and training experience of Dr. Ekman by developing and deploying high quality training programs and materials across the globes in partnership with established high quality training providers.

Becoming a Paul Ekman International Licensed Delivery Centre (LDC)

PEI LDC’s hold a License direct with PEI to promote, sell and deliver the Paul Ekman training modules within your territories. An LDC will be a separate legal entity having strong internal training ability and is interested in adding PEI modules to their repertoire for their employees and/or clients. There will be two main types of LDC:

  1. Corporate LDC – a large private/public/social organisation that may have its own human resources or organizational development function that wants to train internal employees using PEI Core Modules.
  2. Commercial LDC – a private/public/social organization whose primary business is training and development. This could be a University, a private training company or even a commercial HR department of a corporate who offers services outside of their employees. We will secure a sector spread of LDCs so that we have geographical and sector expertise led provision across areas.

Becoming a Paul Ekman International Approved Trainer

Only top class experienced/qualified trainers will be accepted onto the Paul Ekman International ‘Train the Trainer’ programmes. Most applicants have significant experience in the emotional/deception/communication fields, many have a solid social science background and must have already attended the Evaluating Truthfulness and Credibility(ETaC) and the Emotional Skills and Competences(ESaC) courses so they have experienced the courses as delegates. Trainers who pass this course then go forward on probation for three events which are attended/videoed by Paul Ekman International with support throughout.
They will have established, or be working within, a Licensed Delivery Centre.

Comments from ‘Train the Trainer’ (TTT) candidates:

“TTT has been a process, a journey,  to one of the highest level peaks of wisdom and skills to acquire, integrate and deliver the legacy of Paul Ekman´s knowledge on Behavioral Science. It has been a great experience working with all my peers, and with two amazing trainers such as Cliff and John. Every detail was taken care for, the setup, the steps, the learning process, the skills. The essence of Emotions, Truth, and Credibility was given and then received by all delegates, so during these 5 intense days, we have reached a high level of understanding of all the processes of learning and understanding.
Thank you, Cliff and John, for this amazing week.” (Enrique Jurado Fernandez – 2017)
“I have experienced many training courses over the years but I never experience the level of insight and expertise as provided by the facilitators of this training. The design of the course ensured that learning just happened, sometimes, seemingly, by osmoses. The videos and exercises were well chosen, interesting and totally pertinent to the topics. The debrief sessions and peer feedback, gave me a unique insight into how others perceive my interactions and were also a great opportunity to consolidate the learning and really engage with the topic. I left with a much deeper understanding of the topics, their application in real life scenarios and an enthusiasm to continue developing skills in both emotional competence and evaluating truthfulness.” (Geladine Noone – 2017)
