Not the Midlands, but just up the road in Leeds we run SNLP Bandler certificated NLP Prac and Master Prac trainings with a maximum of 30 attendees on each training. My co trainer Tina Taylor heads up the assisting team on all the London events and like myself teaches the very latest NLP from RB. We get people from all over the UK and the current event which is fully booked has people from as far south as Kent!
The NLP Prac is held over two lots of 3 days and this year the price is ?999 plus vat which includes certification. More details are here at http://www.tranceformingnlp.com/nlp_practitioner_training_seminar_leeds_uk.php
I always advise people to speak to the course trainers prior to deciding on attending an event and for this reason you can check out the interviews from a number of different NLP trainers from all schools of NLP at www.nlpmp3.com
Finally if you have any questions feel free to contact me and I will do my best to answer them!
