"A truly engaging course, with a great balance of concept teaching and practical practice.

 Natascha added so much value to the learning experience with her well thought out approach to delivery and interaction with the class. I feel like this is already having a profound impact on more aspects of my life than just workplace related agile team project coaching. While I have been a leader, coach, mentor and teacher in many practical capacities, I feel like this course has filled in gaps I didn’t know existed.”  ICAgile Quality Survey

"Natascha has an amazing command of the technology and creates a truly interactive experience!

I am a 20 year IT leader and she was more confident in the technology than I. It is obvious why she is a respected and expert consultant/agile coach. She consistently asked powerful and insightful questions as well as challenged all of us in our answers and participation while still being positive and enthusiastic. I learned so much from Natascha and am looking forward to implementing it in my next role.” ICAgile Quality Survey

"You are great, very professional, kind, and connected to the group. It was a pleasure to learn from you!"

It was a very interactive and intense course, and the flow and content of the course were finetuned to perfection!

Online ICP-ATF Course Program

The Online Agile Team Facilitator Certification training (ICP-ATF certification) is a highly interactive and deeply experiential 14-hour program that focuses on the mindset, roles and responsibilities of an agile team facilitator. This course is taught using techniques from “Training from the Back of the Room” and “Liberating structures”, but also works with some written content that is delivered to you before each class starts so you can prepare for your session. The many activities and feedback sessions will help you acquire essential agile team facilitation skills such as maintaining neutrality, facilitator stances and anti-patterns, different facilitation techniques, active listening, powerful questioning and facilitation guide writing.

Frequently Asked Questions

How is the virtual program different from the in-class program?

The only difference is the way the content is delivered, meaning that you can follow the online program from your home or office, instead of being present in a class room. We decided to stretch the program over 4 days, which actually gives you more time to practice in between sessions.

Do I receive the same certificate?

Yes. The ICP-ATF certificate issued after the program is exactly the same as the one you would receive after an in-class course. The Certificate doesn’t mention if you followed an online or in-class course.

What are the pre-requisites or qualifications required to enter the course?

There are no conditional pre-requisites for this Agile Team Facilitator Certification program. It is however advised to have good working knowledge of at least one Agile framework, and if you have working experience in an agile environment, that would be a plus. But, many people start their journey as a professional coach, or even as a manager. This course will help you take up your new role as an Agile Team Coach

Do I have to take an exam to receive the Certificate?

No. The ICP-ATF Agile Certification course is a knowledge based certification program. This means that the course is designed to cover all the learning objectives required by ICAgile. We ask you to keep your camera on and have a good working microphone so you can actively participate in the many coaching and mentoring activities, breakout sessions, teach-back moments and presentations.

How often do I need to renew the ICP-ATF certificate?

Never. The Agile Team Facilitation Certificate issued by ICAgile after this certification program has lifetime validity.

When will I receive my certificate?

Usually within a few days after completion of the course, ICAgile will send you your certificate.

Do I need to prepare anything before entering the virtual classroom?

Two weeks before the start of the course you will receive your  workbook. We ask you to print the pages and use them during the session. At the end of the program you can bind them together with the slides you found interesting and other notes you took during the session, to keep as a reference.

Do I need to prepare anything before entering the virtual classroom?

Two weeks before the start of the course, and before each session you will receive part of your workbook. We ask you to print the pages and use them during the session. At the end of the program you can bind them together with the slides you found interesting and other notes you took during the session, to keep as a reference.

How do I enter the Virtual classroom?

We will send you an invitation to join our Zoom conference room by email. The link will open a window. If you have never used Zoom before, we recommend you open this window a couple of minutes before the session starts so you can download the application if your browser requires this. You can then keep the window open untill your trainer opens the classroom and the session begins.

What happens after the course has finished?

We offer an extensive follow-up program to all our students including two sessions with a professional coach. You can claim your two coaching sessions after your course. These sessions are there to help you get on your feet as an Agile Coach, but if you wish, you may address a completely different challenge with your coach. It is up to you how you use these valuable moments with your coach.
