The American Lung Association’s Freedom From Smoking® Facilitator Overview Training is a 2.5-hour certification training for those individuals working to become certified Freedom From Smoking® facilitators and conduct group programs within their communities and beyond. Prior to this course, participants will have completed both Tobacco Basics and How to Help People Quit.

The Facilitator Overview Training course includes interactive components to support all learning styles. Participants will learn to differentiate between instructional teaching and facilitation methods, develop strategic questions to ask participants, prompting reflection and behavior change, and be able to describe ways to use experiential learning methods to increase the effectiveness of group program sessions. Once this course has been completed, participants must attend the Skill Builder Workshop via digital platform with an American Lung Association Facilitator Trainer to complete and receive their facilitator certification.
