Training Approach

We believe that the best training occurs when skills can be practiced, and participants receive real time feedback.  Our on-Line programs are designed to allow self-paced learning of materials through guided webinars in combination with experiential practicing with peers approach and tutorials led by the instructors.  We understand that people in remote locations need support in their practice and therefore we have made skills learning training more accessible.

On Line 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.  When thinking about how to maximize practice opportunities on-line, ICCFL has created a Practicing with Peers approach where you can work in pairs in a physical shared space or meet up with a peer in a virtual room on-line.

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.
