Training Approach

We believe that the best training occurs when skills can be practiced and participants receive real time feedback.  We therefore privilege face-to-face training.  We also understand that people in remote locations need support in their practice and so we are developing as many programs as possible in an online format.

Face-to-Face Training

ICCFL programs are designed to be practice based, with a strong theoretical foundation. The greatest challenge in learning is often more in acquisition of skills than in theoretical understanding.  ICCFL offers Certificate of Competence and Certificate of Attendance programs.  In order to receive a Certificate of Competence participants must complete assessment tasks that demonstrate achievement of the program competencies.  Course lengths are between one and four days in length and are held at our two ICCFL centres in Calgary Canada, or Sydney Australia.  Our courses are also portable and can be offered offsite upon request.
