The Philippine Society for Talent Development (PSTD) has awarded nine individuals with Level 1 Facilitator Certifications for their successful completion of the Certified Facilitator Level 1 program. One of the awardees was a participant from last year’s Facilitation Skills Training, while the other 8 completed the program just last month.
The awardees were recognized for their ability to demonstrate the skills they learned from the Facilitation Training Course through a demonstration. They were identified as Edgar Allan David, Christina Marie Deuna, Daisylyn Gonzalodo, Anne Beverly Rumbaoa, Richie Toreda, Prince William Dionisio, Jcil Vean Bagtasos, Juan Miguel Aguilar, and Ivy Leslie Tahimic.
The course was facilitated by Edwin Ebreo and April Salonga. Another Certification course will be conducted on July 18 to 20.
The Certified Facilitator program is designed to help facilitators develop the necessary skills and knowledge to facilitate effective learning experiences. The program has two levels of certifications. Level 1 certification requires the demonstration of skills learned from the course, while Level 2 certification is a practitioner level certification where applicants undergo a more rigorous assessment of their facilitation practice.
In the future, the PSTD plans to offer Level 1 certification programs for analysts, designers, and managers as well. The certification program is part of the organization’s efforts to develop talent in the Philippines and improve the quality of learning experiences in the country.
