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:
To get started

their facilitation skills against a set of professionally developed competencies

a certificate that entitles them to use the IAF global designation of
Certified Professional Facilitator (CPF)

respected and developing group of professional facilitators.
