Facilitators Guide to Course Instructors
For a class of fewer than 5 registered students,
the cost is $100 (includes the guide and Powerpoint
slides). An instructor must be named by the
education or human resources (or similar) department
of an organization, and a licensing agreement
must be agreed to. The guides have been available
since the spring trimester of 2003, and results
have been gratifying. For instance, among the
September 2003 examinees was a class whose
instructor used the Guide. Of that class, 100%
passed the exam — an unheard of result.
Other facilitated classes have seen very high
rates of success.

Facilitators Can Get Even More Resources
For several years, all the IDMA certification
courses have been available in two formats – the Study Guide format for the
students and in Facilitator’s Guide format.
Facilitators, who are appointed by their organizations
and who agree to security and copyright standards,
use these modified guides to facilitate study
for groups of IDMA students. The guides include
answers and definitions for the Key Terms and
Concepts and for the Review Questions portions
of the courses.
Powerpoint slides are also
available to share with registered facilitators
who have obtained the facilitator’s guides
and who have agreed to security and copyright

Facilitators will testify to the value of
We have published facilitator’s testimonials in the IDM
Quarterly in the past. These are very, very useful tools. Here
is one example of what facilitators have to say:
The Facilitator's Guide really took the pressure off. It gave
me the support and confidence I needed to feel comfortable about
teaching the class.
The Facilitator's Guide made it easy for me to keep the class
on track and focused. If I didn't have the Guide I think it would
have been easy to get side-tracked and not be able to cover a
chapter per class. I wouldn't want to teach the class without
the Facilitator's Guide.
