Certification Training Details
Training Delivered Virtually: The Facilitator Certification Training is a 6 zoom session (4-5 hours per session) immersive training experience, focused on facilitation of the DYL content, led by DYL Consulting. Co-CEOs, Susan Burnett, former Talent Executive in Fortune 500 companies and Kathy Davies, Product designer and Managing Director of the Stanford Life Design Lab are Master Trainers Licensees for the Evans-Burnett LLC. Participants will practice facilitating the DYL modules offered in the One Day Intensive and One and Half Day Workshop, learn about the underlying rationale behind each module, and deepen their understanding through discussion and feedback.
Prior to Training: Participants will receive a subset of the materials to prepare and practice prior to the certification workshop. Participants will be required to create personal examples in Powerpoint slide format, and to familiarize themselves with workshop slides in preparation for delivery prior to arrival at the workshop. The Master Trainers will offer a pre-work preparatory zoom call to assist with preparation and answer any preliminary questions. The call is an optional part of the process.
During the Training: Facilitators will be asked to stand and deliver modules that they have prepared ahead of time and prepare modules real-time during the training itself. Facilitation practice will include role play of real world facilitation challenges and situations. This training is rigorous and fast paced, with substantive feedback delivered real time. All facilitators will both deliver and share feedback with other trainers for all modules included in the certification sessions. The training is appropriate for seasoned trainers with confidence in public speaking and ability to maintain a professional and calm demeanor under pressure.
After the Training Sessions: Facilitators will be required to submit a video of themselves teaching 2 core modules of the DYL IP within one month of the training. This video will be reviewed by Master Trainers. Successful approval by Master Trainers of the video is the final step prior to certification, and upon approval, a license contract will be extended to those successfully certified.
Please note that attendance at the training does not guarantee certification.
