The NAA Education Institute’s Advanced Facilitator Training (AFT) is a train-the-trainer course delivered over three days and is intended for the experienced instructor. This intensive practicum provides participants with valuable, high-quality, specialized training on session planning and presentation skills. AFT prepares instructors to deliver the NAAEI’s credentials and learning programs critical to advancing careers and promoting professionalism among apartment industry team members. 

This course is a faciliatation skill builder and a CAREER ENHANCER! The AFT classroom is a positive and supportive environment, where participants are guided through a dynamic curriculum of presentation, hands-on activity, and feedback.  AFT will have a lasting impact on many aspects of a participant's career. Whether the participant is a trainer of two years or 25 years, AFT will provide incredible professional development benefits. The experience will transform instructors into learning facilitators! 

Upon completion of AFT, participants will assigned NAAEI Faculty status.  To maintain this status, you must:

  • Provide 12 hours of classroom or electronic instruction annually for a state or local NAA-affiliated apartment association with no facilitator fee. However, considerable travel expenses should be reimbursed.Should an Affiliate not have the available facilitation hours, then other volunteer opportunities may be mutually agreed upon.
  • Use the NAAEI Faculty evaluation form to continue to evaluate and improve your facilitation skills.
  • Attend or participate in any required continuing education programs designed for faculty members.
