Licensed Delivery Centres (LDC) - these hold a License direct with PEI to promote, sell and deliver the Paul Ekman training modules within their 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:

Corporate LDC - a large private/public/social organization that may have its own human resources or organizational development function that wants to train internal employees using PEI Core Modules.

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, but within the territory of their LLDC. We will secure a sector spread of LDCs so that we have geographical and sector expertise led provision across areas including those below.
