Certified Online Learning Facilitator

Join hundreds of L&D professionals working towards their certification in the delivery of live online learning.


The traditional delivery skills of classroom trainers simply will not transfer into the online classroom. The success of live online learning events depends entirely on the quality of your L&D professionals’ skills in facilitating live online events. Without these skills, your learning events will fail.

The Certified Online Learning Facilitator (COLF) course was launched in 2010 with the aim of raising standards within the live online learning arena; reinstalling confidence in online facilitation as a method to deliver effective learning.
