Facilitated Foundation Training Program – NLE Member


SKU: NLE-FFT Category:


Next Level Exchange (NLE) is proud to offer the Facilitated Foundation Program (FFT) program for a limited time in 2022. FFT is Trainer-led via 15 live webinars during a set 5-week curriculum. This frees up your time while we train your new or experienced recruiters – such as those who need a refresher or never received formal training on the fundamentals of the complete search process.

FFT equips new recruiters with the skills, tools, and vernacular essential for a career in professional search. The quantity and depth of topics covered are also ideal for experienced search professionals who want to reaffirm existing skills or become proficient in deficient areas of their search knowledge.

Course facilitation and instruction recaps expand and enforce the 60 chapters of 20 Modules of the NLE Foundation Training Program; nearly 22 hours of professionally produced videos, participant workbooks, scripting exercises, quizzes, and collaborative discussion questions. FFT is delivered in a participative distance-based classroom setting with 20 hours of live Trainer led course facilitation.
