The International Association of Facilitators (IAFTM) is the world-wide professional body established to promote, support and advance the art and practice of professional facilitation through methods exchange, professional growth, practical research and collegial networking. In response to the needs of members and their customers, IAF established the Professional Facilitator Certification Program.
The Professional Facilitator Certification Program provides successful candidates with the professional credential “Certified Professional FacilitatorTM” (CPFTM), as signified by a Certificate. This credential is the leading indicator that the facilitator is competent in each of the basic facilitator competencies. This document, Core Facilitator Competencies © IAFTM 2003, provides an overview of the competency framework that is the basis of the CPF certification.
