Based across the country, CCAT certified facilitators help nonprofits use the CCAT to improve their capacity. Trained by TCC Group, they provide expert guidance in the administration and interpretation of CCAT results. Equipped with extensive experience and knowledge of the latest findings, as well as experience working in the local sector, a certified facilitator can help a nonprofit organization create and execute a capacity building action plan based on CCAT results.

Join the Facilitator Community of Practice

TCC Group trains nonprofit and foundation staff, as well as independent consultants, in facilitating CCAT interpretation sessions to help make meaning and action from CCAT results. Training certifications are offered in two ways:

For individuals who would like to be trained

TCC Group holds a CCAT facilitator training webinar series several times a year. The series consists of three 2-hour sessions on using and interpreting the CCAT. 

For organizations that would like to train their staff

TCC Group designs and conducts facilitator trainings for organizations who wish to train 4 or more staff members in CCAT facilitation. These sessions can be offered virtually via webinar, or in person, and can be tailored to the primary audiences served by your organization.

After the training, facilitators shadow TCC Group consultants on interpretation calls with nonprofits, and receive hands-on coaching and feedback as they conduct their own interpretation sessions. The training culminates with a TCC Group certification of competency in CCAT facilitation.

All CCAT certified facilitators join our facilitator Community of Practice, a virtual learning network of nonprofits, consultants and foundations who use the CCAT. Annual membership in the facilitator community includes:

  • Invitations to quarterly webinars on CCAT learnings and best practices, exclusively for CCAT facilitators

  • Access to TCC Group consultants for consultations and coaching throughout the year

  • A $100 discount for each CCAT purchased
