Becoming an Air Certified Facilitator

General Program Info

We typically host one Air Certified Facilitator training program each year. It prepares people to deliver Air’s Engage and Shift workshops.

The training is free. We provide a stipend of $750 and a flat fee for childcare may be available. Participants receive printed materials during the training.

The training is limited to 12 participants.

Training Program Details

Program participants master three skills:

  • Presenting Air materials
  • Facilitating collaborative teams
  • Coaching individuals for future success

Participants learn by doing! The training is very interactive and focuses on skill building. You’ll practice collaborating, listening, design thinking, and business planning.

The training program facilitators model what Air Certified Facilitators do. They don’t give answers because they know people learn best when they discover answers themselves.

The training facilitators also help participants identify things they are trying to change in their lives and careers and make plans for achieving their goals.
