The two days preceding the AFN Conference (24-25 November 2008) have been designated for conduct of the IAF Certified Professional Facilitator (CPF) assessment process for Australasia.
This will take place at the Conference venue of Charles Sturt University, Bathurst, with the precise location to be advised.  
Participation in this event is not part of Registration for the Conference. 

Background to IAF Facilitator Certification

In 1990 a team of International Association of Facilitators (IAF) members identified the foundational competencies required to facilitate group interaction.  
Those efforts resulted in the IAF competency model and assessment process.

The assessment process is based on rigorous peer review of knowledge, experience and demonstration of skills.  The IAF Certified Professional Facilitator designation indicates attainment of the core competencies.  The designation offers clients an assurance that facilitators who are certified are qualified to design and provide professional group facilitation services.
Successful candidates for certification:
  • have tested their facilitation skills against a set of professionally developed competencies recognised by our peers 
  • receive individual and constructive feedback from independent professional facilitators 
  • receive a certificate that entitles them to use the IAF global designation of Certified Professional Facilitator (CPF) 
  • gain competitive advantage by being listed on the IAF Website as a Certified Professional Facilitator (CPF) 
  • join a respected and developing group of professional facilitators.
