IAF Certification Fee Policies
The cost of IAF Certified™ Professional Facilitator accreditation is $2450.00* USD plus IAF Membership. NOTE: All funds are non-refundable/non-transferable.
The CPF application fee is based on several factors that determine the number of assessors and space required to conduct the evaluation of the IAF Core Competencies for accreditation. Assessor time for report preparation is included in the calculated assessment days. Please note, travel and accommodations are the responsibility of the candidate.
IAF Certification does not negotiate application fees; the total fees per CPF assessment are applied consistently across the world.
In rare circumstances, IAF may, at its discretion, approve a request to postpone assessment for a candidate. In such cases, the candidate may be charged a fee of $350* USD to defray administrative costs.
In the event the candidate elects to withdraw prior to the Stage 2 document deadline, candidates will be provided a refund less $350* USD to defray administrative costs.
Should a candidate withdraw from a CPF event after the Stage 2 document deadline, the application fee is non-refundable/non-transferable.
No Shows: No refunds will be made for a candidate who registers for the CPF assessment but does not cancel or attend the Stage 2 assessment.
Fees are due according to published document deadlines in the Certification events calendar and/or in correspondence from the Administrative office.
Certification is valid for three years after the date of successful completion. A renewal of certificate is required to remain certified. A renewal fee of $400* USD will apply. For more information, please visit our recertification page. Kindly note, you must also be a current member of the International Association of Facilitators (IAF) for the entire period of certification.
