SMPG FACILITATOR TRAINING FAQS
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 recertification process. Anyone trained prior to 2021 is now due for recertification. (Please see training dates below.) We look forward to reconnecting!
Can I recertify before my two years are done? Yes! You can recertify at any time. Your two years will start from the new date of certification.
When will recertification be offered? We will always offer recertification for free for individuals attending in-person at our annual conference (50% off for virtual conference attendees). In addition, we will have online recertification 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.
What is Master Facilitator status? This status is offered to a facilitator who has run at least ten SMPG groups. Please let us know if you qualify for this status, which you can feel free to list on your advertising. We will ask you to provide us with a list of the groups you’ve run, and we also request that you be an active SENG member.
What is a Master Facilitator Trainer?
Master Facilitators who want to become a trainer of facilitators can attend a Master Facilitator Trainer Training. Once complete, Master Facilitator Trainers will work with an SMPG Board Member (or designee) to train future SMPG facilitators.
