​How to become a certified SENG Community Group Facilitator

Requirements to train to become a Facilitator are as follows:  


Maintain an active SENG membership
Previous participation in at least one SENG Community Group (formerly SMPG)
(see our online offerings above if you are looking for a group to join)
Participate in 2-year recertification training, either in-person or online


How long will my facilitator training last? Your status as a facilitator will last for two years starting from the year you were originally certified. At that time, you will be asked to participate in a refresher course. Anyone trained prior to 2021 is now due for a SCG Refresh. (Please see training dates above.) We look forward to reconnecting! 


Can I take a refresh course before my two years are done? Yes! You can take a refresher course at any time. Your two years will start from the date of your latest refresher course. 


When will Refresh Courses be offered? We will always offer refresh courses for free for individuals attending in-person at our annual conference. In addition, we will have online refresher course opportunities throughout the year. 


What if my membership has lapsed? Please renew your membership here


What if I want to run a group but have not participated in a group yet? You can check for a local group to join, or join one of the online groups listed on our site. 


What is the cost of training? Please see the specifics listed under the training opportunity you wish to join.
