The written evidence is assessed against the six core competencies and successful candidates are then invited to the CPF assessment which consists of two interviews and candidates must facilitate a peer reviewed demonstration workshop.
As the certificate shows I passed.
It was a good opportunity to learn from and experience other facilitators tools and methods and get oral and written feedback from other Certified™ Professional Facilitators (CPF's) on what they had seen and experienced of my strengths and learning edges.
And it gives clients confidence that my professional practice has met a professional standard.
I'd recommend other facilitators to go through the IAF CPF process, for me it was a positive experience that will bring lasting benefits.
