Event description


Update 2020-03-15: This event is sold out. In the wake of the ongoing health crisis, we have offered several options to everybody who has registered for this course event or its waiting lists, and we continuously stay in contact. Until further notice, we do not offer additional registration options to the public, sorry!

The European option to become a Certified Trainer for Sharon Bowman’s «Training from the BACK of the Room!»

You’re designing and delivering courses, workshops, seminars or training programs?

It’s getting easier now for you, and for many other trainers, coaches, teachers, Scrum Masters and professionals deeply interested in adult learning.

Start creating more immersive, active and collaborative learning environments for your clients, as an activity within this training program! Learn and apply what cognitive neuroscience actually has to say about the ways all humans naturally and normally learn. And make the knowledge stick!

For a slightly longer overview on «Training from the BACK of the Room!», see our blog post.

All course days are strictly limited to a maximum of 15 participants. Apart from the Full 3-day Package, there is also a small number of tickets available for the Trainer Certification Course (day 3 of the package, only), and for the TBR Practioner Class (days 1-2 of the package, only).


Do I need a visa for Germany?

You may wish to consult the Visa FAQ of the German Federal Foreign Office.

What is the closest airport?

  • Düsseldorf (DUS), the third-largest airport in Germany. You can find instructions on how to get from the airport to the venue here. Essentially, it's a 15 minutes ride, either by train (ca. 3€ / single ticket; 200m walk from train station to venue), or by taxi (ca. 30€ / single ride).

Which language is this course in?

  • The language spoken is English
  • All materials, including slides & workbooks, are in English

What's the waiting list policy?

Waiting lists will only be available here when all tickets are sold out. No waiting lists will even be visible before that.

All waiting lists are first-come, first-served. The procedure is:

  1. As soon as one of the desired tickets becomes available, it will be offered via email to the person at the top of the respective waiting list
  2. That person gets 48 hours to claim (buy) the ticket
  3. If they choose not to claim the ticket within that time frame, it will be offered to the next person, and so on
  4. Persons who chose to not claim a ticket will be removed from all waiting lists.
  5. At the end of the registration period, all waiting lists will be closed and cleaned, including all personal data.

What is included in the ticket fee?

  • A list of the materials and giveaways you'll receive for each ticket type can be found at
  • Free WIFI during the course times
  • Ongoing supply of coffee, tea, water & juice
  • On every course day, light lunch plus two coffee breaks with snacks, all on site
  • Please note: Accommodation is NOT INCLUDED.

Can I register for the TBR Certified Trainer Course (TCC) when I'm not a TBR Practitioner yet?

  • If you book the Full 3-day Package, you'll complete the TBR Practitioner Class on days 1+2, so that's fine.
  • Othrwise, you cannot register for, and participate in, the TCC when you haven't completed the TBR Practitioner Class yet. In particular, you cannot register for the TCC merely expecting that you will complete a TBR Practitioner Class, before the TCC takes place.
  • If you register for the TCC only (i.e., day 3 only), you must be able to provide your existing "Certificate of Completion" for the TBR Practitioner Class that you have received, in the past. Failure to provide that certificate upon request will lead to your TCC registration being cancelled, immediately.

After completing the TBR Practitioner Class (days 1-2), can I deliver the TBR Practitioner Class to others, myself?

  • You are NOT licensed to deliver the TBR Practitioner Class.
  • To do that, you need to become a TBR Certified Trainer.

After becoming a TBR Certified Trainer (day 3), can I certify other TBR trainers, myself?

  • As a TBR Certified Trainer, you are licensed to deliver the TBR Practitioner Class, only.
  • You are NOT licensed to deliver the TBR Trainer Certification Course (TCC), that is: you are NOT licensed to certify others as TBR Certified Trainers.

Is this course guaranteed to take place?

  • This course will be cancelled if an instance of force majeure prevents it from taking place (see refunds FAQ below).
  • This course will be cancelled if the number of registered participants is less than 8 at the end of the registration period (March 23rd 2020).

Are there ID, passport, or other requirements to enter the event?

  • If you book the Trainer Certification Course only (day 3 of the package), you'll need to produce a photo ID (e.g., passport) on location. In addition, and prior to the event, you'll need to provide (via email) evidence that you have already completed the TBR Practitioner Class in the past. You will be asked when and where you completed it, and you will be asked for a legible scan of your Certificate of Completion.

Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event?

  • Yes. If you haven't got your ticket available, please bring your ID (e.g., passport).

Is my registration fee or ticket transferrable?

  • Your ticket is transferrable. Please provide the full name and email address of the person you wish to have the ticket transferred to, at least 7 days before the event. Please note that a ticket for the Trainer Certification Course can only be transferred to a person who satisfies the requirements listed under Are there ID or other requirements to enter the event? above.

What's the refund policy?

  • In the case of force majeure on our side, the training will be cancelled and the complete ticket fee will be refunded. The refund is strictly limited to the ticket fee. Force majeure includes any conditions out of our control that render the course impossible (like the venue becoming unavailable; natural disasters; severe illness of the trainer(s); and similar).
  • In case the number of registered participants is less than 8 at the end of the registration period, this course will be cancelled, and the same refund policy applies.
  • There are no other refunds, under no circumstances.

How can I contact the organizer with any questions unanswered here?
