View Dates CCFT (In-House Trainer Preparation) Workshop

If you are faced with an ever-growing list of providers and staff who are excited to lead Centering groups; you’re overseeing an active residency program or are struggling with high staff turnover and limited budgets, your health center should consider this in-house training alternative. After successful completion of this 3-day “train the trainer” workshop and completion of the Certified Centering Facilitation Trainer (CCFT) requirements, you will be authorized to offer Centering Basic Facilitation Workshops at your Site Accredited practice.

Over the course of three days participants will be immersed in the content, theory and practice that will prepare you to conduct Centering In-House Basic Facilitation Workshops at your own practice site.

Upcoming dates are scheduled in Denver, CO on November 11-13. Please view CCFT page for further information and to get started.


  • Plan an In-House Basic Facilitation Workshop
  • Lead an engaging, interactive facilitation training
  • Coach participants to reinforce and build facilitation skills
  • Model the use of Centering materials, tools and activities  
  • Communicate the standards for model fidelity to ensure sustainability of your thriving Centering practice 


The workshop is for highly experienced and successful Centering facilitators who have attained the Certified Centering Facilitator (CCF) recognition and successfully meet the requirements to become a Certified Centering Facilitation Trainer (CCFT) for their practice setting. Potential applicants will be required to complete an application and invited to participate in a virtual session, before workshop participation is confirmed.

Please note: In-House Training is available for Accredited Centering practice sites only. While not a cost for the individual participant, the site will also be required to purchase an In-House training license in order to conduct their own workshops. The annual license fee is $2,000 and payment is separate from individual workshop registration. The CHI Certification Coordinator will walk you through this process after you have submitted your application.
