As a Prosci Certified Advanced Instructor, I decided to first deliver the practitioner course. Leadership wanted me to develop a program capable of creating a culture of change at all levels. I felt the project team's immersion in the concepts, tools and methods at the practitioner level would be a great place to start this cultural growth.
