IAF's Facilitator Certification Program

The International Association of Facilitators (IAF) has met the need for standards in facilitator certification. In 1990, an international team of IAF members identified the core competencies required to facilitate group interaction. This team's efforts resulted in the IAF competency model and assessment process.

Certified Professional Facilitator

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 these core competencies. The professional facilitator designation offers clients an assurance that those who are certified are qualified to design and provide basic group facilitation services.
