DF is an art form and a discipline. Like any practice – meditation, dance, basketball – it is something to be cultivated over time.

In one three-day seminar you learn DF, enough to make a substantial difference. But we’ve found that most people need ongoing support to develop their practice. It’s important to take advantage of opportunities to apply what you have learned and to continue learning as you do so. It’s especially important to reflect with others on your experiences to grow in capability.

Many have found it valuable to attend additional seminars to deepen their understanding of this practice. In most seminars, we have many "levels" of practitioners – from those encountering this practice for the first time, to those who are refining and expanding their understanding and their change potential.

To support practitioners in their ongoing DF learning journey, we have developed a framework for in-depth practice and the development of mastery. We want to help you grow in your practice of Dynamic Facilitation enough that we feel comfortable recommending your work to others.

The time this takes cannot be known beforehand. It depends on prior skills and personal development, what each person brings to the practice. “Certification" is by no means an end of this learning!

A first step is to attend at least two 3-day Dynamic Facilitation Seminars, each with a different instructor if possible. From there we can create a plan for your path in becoming a Master in Dynamic Facilitation. Here is a summary of the Master program: DFA_Mastery_Training

After becoming a Master in Dynamic Facilitation, if you are interested in becoming a DF Instructor then here is a summary of the process: DF_Instructor Program 3-2014
