Abilitie offers leadership training certification options for client-internal facilitation teams and partners who want to join our global faculty.
Abilitie’s Certification Process
Becoming certified in Abilitie’s world-renowned simulations is an investment in your future as an educator. Unlike other leadership training certifications, ours offers one-on-one coaching that allows you to learn as the participants do — through hands-on experience under the expert guidance of a Principal Facilitator.
Being an Abilitie certified facilitator requires a unique skill set. Our simulations are not simple exercises where script memorization through traditional rote methods will set you up for success — that’s what makes our simulations first-in-class! Before you embark on the exciting journey of becoming a certified Abilitie facilitator and join our distinguished faculty, make sure that you…

Frequently Asked Questions
What are the qualifications needed to go through the certification program?
Abilitie works interactively with our clients to identify the right internal individuals to teach an Abilitie program. At the highest level, an ideal candidate is a dynamic speaker with a Socratic teaching style, subject matter expertise in leadership and business acumen, and 5+ years of teaching experience in the corporate classroom.
What is the teach-back component?
We will build upon your current facilitation expertise, honing your skills to elevate your future participants’ simulation experience. This will include teaching components of the simulation, practicing debriefs, and receiving feedback from the Principle Facilitator during those 8 hours.
Will there be a test associated to earn the certification ‘badge’ or title?
There is no official test associated with this certification. However, in order to become officially certified and be able to display the badge on your LinkedIn page, the Principle Facilitator will have to “sign-off” on the fact that you are: (1) well-versed in the simulation technology, (2) comfortable with the complexities of the competition, and (3) able to deliver Socratic debriefs that do not follow a linear script and bring the learning objectives to life. Should there be challenges, we will work with you to figure out how we can accomplish the goal of certification together.
How long does the certification last?
The certification requires you to lead at least two simulation sessions and to attend a half-day faculty recertification workshop each year. As long as you attend this workshop, your certification will not expire.
