Your Journey to Certification

Reasons to become Certified with INIFAC?

There are a few other organizations that also offer facilitation certification, so here is what makes INIFAC different and a better choice for you:

  • We are NOT a membership organization – our only focus is on certification of individual and courses, partnering with professional facilitation firms, supporting organizations promoting facilitation, and creating resources for professional facilitators.
  • Once you certify with us as the highest level, we required one more re-certification renewal, and you are then certified for life. No annual fees, no renewal fees after the initial re-certification, and no commitments. We believe in your skills and your knowledge, because you passed our certification process!
  • We have the most rigorous certification process in the world, with competencies and sub competencies that must be demonstrated in writing and in practice.
  • We make it easy – you can submit your skills on line and through a video submittal process.

Ever wondered about your level of competency as a facilitator?  Take this self assessment!

At the completion of this assessment, you will be provided with a score and graphical representation of your self-assessed “current state” in terms of your facilitation skills as measured against the core competencies.

Do you offer a facilitation course and would like to partner with INIFAC to certify your course as meeting these competencies?
