Our Virtual Facilitator Trainer Certification (VFTC) course is designed to maximize their virtual delivery capabilities of trainers and facilitators.

Are you serious about maximizing your virtual delivery capabilities? Do you want a more rigorous learning experience to ensure that you develop world-class virtual facilitation skills and practices? Can you benefit from professional certification as part of your career development?

The Virtual Facilitator Trainer Certification course may be right for you.

Learn how to:

  • Engage learner attention and participation in online learning
  • Design effective virtual classroom exercises using the web conference interaction tools
  • Repurpose traditional classroom exercises for collaborative virtual learning
  • Describe best practices for online facilitation
  • Increase learning transfer before, during, and after the facilitated session
  • Develop and facilitate a 20-minute online learning experience for peers in this course

The VFTC course leads participants through a four-week, hands-on training experience. You will learn how to design and deliver powerful, high impact web training enhanced with interactive and engaging activities. The course includes:

  • Three synchronous facilitated webinars (4.5 hours)
  • Collaborative, self-paced assignments at the NetSpeed Fast Tracks™ website (12 – 20 hours)
  • A private coaching session to prepare for each participant's trainback (45 minutes)
  • Peer-to-peer learning through trainback presentations (6 hours)
  • A copy of Great Webinars by Cynthia Clay

A NetSpeed Master Trainer provides feedback on your assignments, models effective facilitation practices, and provides detailed feedback on your 20-minute trainback.

The Virtual Facilitator Trainer Certification course is the magic potion for optimal learning transfer. I am amazed at how much I learned in a short amount of time. The course was effective due to incorporating both synchronous and asynchronous methods. We were given content in articles and handouts, immediately applied what we learned in class blogs, then reinforced the concepts during the web workshops through provocative slides and engaging interactive discussions. Bravo on putting together such a powerful learning experience!
~ Jane D., eCDA Facilitator, Bright Horizons
I have received the most amazing feedback on everyone’s experience in the virtual facilitator course. It has been wonderful to watch them all blossom as they learned and applied the techniques. Thank you for being wonderful role models for everything we should be incorporating and doing in virtual sessions. You really set an example for us to follow.

The Virtual Facilitator Trainer Certification course opened our eyes to what is possible in synchronous learning. NetSpeed Learning delivered the course in our web platform which was perfect for practicing the tools and techniques. Our trainers increased the scope of programs they wanted to convert as soon as they completed the training. It definitely expanded their thinking.
