Attendance Waiver Requirements

If you are interested in the Facilitation Skills Certificate Program and have attended the Center's past workshops, you may be eligible for an attendance waiver.  The waiver will allow you to advance to the next level in the program without retaking a course you previously completed.  Eligibility requirements are listed below.  If you would like to apply for the Attendance Waiver, or have questions about eligibility, please contact Sarah Gilbert at 859.622.8653 or sarah.gilbert@eku.edu.


Meeting Management & Facilitation Skills Workshop

To waive the attendance requirement for the first Meeting Management & Facilitation Skills Workshop and begin the Certificate Program with the Advanced Facilitation Workshop, participants must have previously completed the Facilitation Center’s Meeting Management & Facilitation Skills course.  If the course was completed less than one year before beginning the Certificate Program, attendance will be waived.  If the course was completed more than one year before beginning the Certificate Program, participants must demonstrate entry-level competence by documenting a planned and facilitated meeting, conducted within the last year, by providing the Center with the following: 

  1. meeting agenda
  2. meeting plan/facilitator’s agenda
  3. meeting report

Because the training curriculum for the Meeting Management & Facilitation Skills Workshop changed in 2011, participants who attended this workshop prior to 2011 will receive a packet of information explaining new content added to the course.  If participants have questions or would like further explanation on these components, they can contact the Center.


DACUM Occupational Analysis Training for Facilitators Workshop

To waive the attendance requirement for the DACUM Occupational Analysis Training for Facilitators elective, participants must have previously completed the Facilitation Center’s DACUM Training for Facilitators course.  If the course was completed less than one year before beginning the Certificate Program, attendance will be waived.  If the course was completed more than one year before beginning the Certificate Program, they must refresh their learning by:

  1. Volunteering during a DACUM Workshop.  Participants may be asked to scribe, help set or break down the room, prepare meeting materials, or other related tasks.  DACUM workshops are held over a two-day period and volunteers are encouraged to participate in both days; however, only one day is required to receive the attendance waiver.  Center staff will notify anyone interested in this option of any upcoming opportunities to fulfill this commitment.
  2. Documenting a facilitated DACUM workshop that was conducted within the last year, by providing the Center with the DACUM chart, report or other documentation showing the participant’s involvement.
