Why take Facilitator Certification Prep?

The International Institute for Facilitation (INIFAC) grants the prestigious Certified Master Facilitator™ (CMF) designation. To become certified, you must submit a list of your facilitation experiences, a list of references, a written application that responds to the 30 CMF sub-competencies, and a videotape of you facilitating a session assigned by INIFAC. The videotape must meet stringent INIFAC requirements designed to ensure the integrity of the process. As a INIFAC partner, we are one of the leading organizations in preparing facilitators for the CMF. We work on your behalf to have the INIFAC materials you need so the videotape created in the class can be submitted to INIFAC for certification. We also provide training in the skills and techniques you need that cover the 30 sub-competencies. Following the class, you will be able to complete the written assessment with confidence and submit the videotape, along with your references and experience list, for INIFAC certification. See the INIFAC website for details on the certification requirements.
