    Virtual training is popular, but the abilities required to conduct it efficiently and provide good results are difficult to master. Kassy LaBorie Consulting's Virtual Facilitator Certification is a hands-on, practical, engaging, fast-paced, and highly effective live online program that trains learning professionals in designing, developing, and facilitating what learners commonly refer to as "heroic virtual training experiences!"

    This 5-session, 2-hour live online certification provides participants with the opportunity to work with and learn directly from Kassy LaBorie, a virtual training veteran of 25 years, author, consultant, and worldwide acclaimed facilitator and presenter. This special offer allows you to interact with Kassy in the same way she consults with her clients, including the synchronous classroom experience.  Gain from her expertise, robust handouts, tools, templates, and content from her various books to understand of what it means to be a virtual training hero!

    The two-hour sessions will be conducted from 11 AM to 1 PM HST on the following dates:

    • Session 1 – January 4
    • Session 2 – January 11
    • Session 3 – January 18
    • Session 4 – January 25
    • Session 5 – February 1


    • An immersive skill building experience of engaging online training with practice and coaching
    • A program delivered entirely live online and time spaced across five weeks
    • Five, 2-hour live online sessions, designed to empower trainers to deliver virtual instructor-led training with confidence
    • Participants join a live online training world, participate in discussion, both on and offline, practice training online, explore and learn their platform, and create training materials ready for immediate use!


    This virtual certification program includes and assumes the following:

    • A Virtual Training Hero badge, powered by Credly, is earned which can be shared on your choice of social media platforms, internally and externally


    • All online sessions delivered through Zoom, although other platforms are discussed so attendees do not need to always use Zoom at their companies. They only need it for this program. They should download the Zoom Meetings Desktop Client and be up to date. Do not use the mobile application or the web browser version for this certification.
    • Participants attend the training from their own computer, their own desk, and their own audio connection.
    • Each online session is recorded and made available only to the candidates who participated in the live sessions for 30 days following the completion of the program.
    • Each participant has access to login and host their own virtual sessions using the web conferencing platform of their choice (Zoom, Teams, Webex, etc.) to apply the technical learning, and practice on their own in between sessions.
    • Participants actively attend and complete assignments to earn the final certification.
    • If participants miss classes or request make up sessions, we will work together to determine the due dates and pricing associated with the additional training/coaching sessions required. Please note there is a $250 fee for makeup teach back sessions, which are also a requirement to earn the final certification.
