Certified Facilitator

The Certified Facilitator (CF) program will grow participants’ mindset, knowledge and ability in professional facilitation. Effectively facilitating a group or team toward co-created, meaningful and committed outcomes is a core agile coaching competency and a skill necessary for effective leadership.

The CF program supports the growth of participants and helps with challenges from real working environments. While participants advance their facilitation skills, participants also support their teams and organisations to grow.

There is no exam required to earn this certification, but prior to the workshop there are the following requirements:

  • Approximately 60 minutes of preparation / pre-work
  • Homework and practices – approximately 4 hours on average (not including the time spent during facilitation sessions)
  • 1/2 day follow-up session

This course is designed for product people (product managers, product owners) to facilitate workshops with stakeholders.

Roles such as these will all benefit tremendously by taking the Certified Facilitation certification:

  • Project Managers
  • People Managers
  • Scrum Master and Agile Coaches wanting to advance their facilitation skills
  • Individuals who want to develop themselves on the path of Agile Coach
  • Anybody who wants to learn about group facilitation


Everyone is welcome to take this course, and there are zero restrictions on registering for the class. For anybody who doesn’t understand Agile and Scrum, some preparation work has to be done to work with facilitation in an Agile context.

This course requires a minimum attendance of 16 hours. As long as the CF prerequisites are met, full attendance and participation will result in registration as a Certified Facilitator.
