A facilitator who has achieved the Certified Master Facilitator designation plus the CMF attends a INIFAC assessor training program is the one who performs the initial assessment of each candidate’s certification package. Following the initial assessment, a reviewer, who must be a Certified Master Facilitator, reviews the initial assessment, confers with the assessor on any significant scoring differences, and finalizes the scoring and rating.
