Become a Certified Caregiving Facilitator

Denise


In 2016, we launched the Certified Caregiving Consultant training program to help you turn your personal caregiving experience into a profession.

We understand that many want to serve but not everyone wants to serve by starting a business. If you'd rather serve as a volunteer who leads support groups, then consider our Certified Caregiving Facilitator™ training program.

We also understand that you'd like to improve communication around caregiving issues within your own family.

Our CCF training program is perfect for:

  • Anyone who'd like to lead a support group for those who care or cared for a family member

  • Anyone who wants to improve communication between family members during the caregiving experience

  • Anyone who wants to gain insights into the caregiving experience

  • Anyone who wants to have tools that improve the communication about caregiving


Our Certified Caregiving Facilitator™ training program provides you with the skills and tools you need to effectively lead a support group meeting for family caregivers and former family caregivers. You also will gain tools you can use as you communicate with family members about caregiving issues.

Our training happens virtually through Zoom which means you take the program from the comfort of your home or workplace.

Our Program


During our four-hour virtual training, you will:

  • learn the importance of the six caregiving stages as you develop your support group;

  • understand how to use our proprietary caregiving tools in your groups;

  • learn the facilitation skills which will help you create effective conversations in your groups;

  • experience the technology (Zoom) you could use to hold a virtual support group;

  • practice the facilitation skills with fellow classmates.


You'll become a Certified Caregiving Facilitator™ once you complete our four-hour training, pass an exam and attend three chats on Caregiving.com. You renew your certification every two years by paying a $29 fee, joining our four-hour training, passing an exam and hosting a support group within that two-year period.

In addition to our four-hour training, you will receive a 12-month curriculum you can use to hold monthly support group meetings. You can adjust the curriculum to best meet your group's purpose.
