Basic course confidential advisor undesirable behaviour and integrity(three day)

What does a confidant do, what are the authorisations, who can appeal to a confidant?

(Note: this concerns the three-day basic course Confidential Advisor Undesirable Behaviour (VPOO). Starting January 1, 2021, you must have attended at least a four-day basic course in which an introduction to the subject of ‘integrity’ is included. We will therefore no longer be offering this three-day course during 2020. If you also wish to follow the additional course day ‘Integrity Confidential Counsellor’, so that you immediately meet the new certification rules, we request that you register for the vierdaagse opleiding on same dates, supplemented with a fourth day.

The three-day course can still be useful for you if you:

  • Are certain that as a confidential advisor you will not be presented with any case studies relating to ‘integrity’ and you are not interested in certification by the LVvV.
  • Plan to follow an additional course day of ‘integrity’ in the year 2020. We also offer this day separately.

You will be provided an answer to these questions, and much more, during the Basic Training Confidential Advisor Undesirable Behaviour (VPOO). You will become acquainted with both the theoretical and the practical aspects. The training is evidence-based, but also our very extensive practical experience will be brought in. During the training, attention is paid to social thinking about desirable and undesirable behaviour within labour organisations.


After following the basic training:

  • Have the knowledge and skills required to get started in practice as a confidential counsellor.
  • Are you aware of the position, role, tasks and pitfalls of the counsellor.
  • You are aware of the relevant case law, legislation and regulations and legal developments.
  • You can determine your role as confidential advisor and draw the line between undesirable behaviour, cooperation problems, labour law issues and integrity issues.
  • Employees can come to you for thorough and practical advice with regard to undesirable behaviour and you have the skills to engage in these conversations.
  • Can you offer appropriate support to those who report undesirable behaviour and do you know the duties, responsibilities and position and legal frameworks of the confidential counsellor?


Our training to become a confidential counsellor for undesirable behaviour is accredited by the National Association of Confidential Advisors. After completing the course you will receive a certificate upon successful participation. You can use this to register with the Association and register as a certified OG counsellor. The costs of this membership and registration are not included in the training.

The requirements that you must meet to be certified are listed in the LVV certificate scheme and described on the website.

Result after following a course study

  • A certificate recognised by the National Association of Confidential Counselors
  • Mediatorsfederatie Nederland (MfN) (Mediators Federation Netherlands): PE recognition, 24 points on level 2
