Course Descriptions, Requirements and Recommendations
FCP – Flow Certified Professional
Here are the Steps & Recommendations to earn the FCP:
- Read Nehemiah Effect and Flow.
- Successfully Complete the online Flow FCP Course.
- If you’d like, you can pay the certification fee to be certified.
- Receive your FCP certificate via email.
This course is worth 18 PDUs (Professional Development Units) for PMI and 18 SEUs (Scrum Education Unit) for Scrum Alliance. We arrive at 18 PDUs / SEUs by including the time to watch the videos, read the blog posts, and take your quizzes.
It is recommended (but not required) that you read both Flow and Nehemiah Effect (and copies of those are included in PDF format along with the entire training slide deck when you take the course). Those are worth an additional 5 PDUs each for 10 PDUs additional (if you haven’t already claimed them as PDUs). So, the recommended reading plus the FCP course together add up to 28 PDUs, total.
This FCP course consists of the following units:
- Intro to Flow
- 4D Model
- Flow-based Scrum / Agile
Upon the successful completion of this course (and passing all quizzes at a minimum of 75%), you will then be entitled to apply for you FCP certificate. A link will be mailed to you with instructions on how to do that when you are done.
FCC – Flow Certified Coach
Here are the Steps & Recommendations to earn the FCC:
- Successfully completed the FCP
- Successfully complete the half-day online FCC course (there is a fee for this)
- This course must be completed with a full-fledged FCT
- Complete the Flow FCP Case Study (on a current or past assignment)
- Could take anywhere from a few weeks to twelve months to complete
- Receive your FCC certificate via email
The Flow Certified Coach certification was added in the beginning of 2020. This is a new step in between the Flow Certified Professional and the Flow Certified Trainer levels. The desire for this certification is to move the FCP certificate holder to the next level and take the knowledge, understanding, tools & techniques out of the books & online training and apply them in the real world using the Flow case study template.
The Flow Certified Coach consists of a half-day of online video training and includes a half-day live, instructor-led exercise. Upon completing those, the candidate then completes the Flow case study. The case study helps the FCC to take the tools and mindset from both of my books and apply those to real world situations. Upon the completion of this course, the participant then receives their certification.
This case study was previously required for the Flow Certified Professional.
FCT – Flow Certified Trainer
Here are the Steps & Recommendations to earn the FCT:
- Successfully completed the FCC
- Co-facilitate between two to five live FCP, FCC or Meet the Experts courses with a full-fledged FCT (the number of sessions required is at the discretion of the FCT that is mentoring you).
- Pay your fee and receive your FCT certificate via email.
The Flow Certified Trainer is designed for those individuals that have a passion for training and this will require some additional reading, online coursework and anywhere from 2 to 5 co-training sessions with a full-fledged FCT. Due to the current situation with coronavirus, the co-training sessions will be held online. The live co-training sessions required for the FCT are suspended until such a time when we can hold live courses again.
For those FCCs that would like to facilitate the live exercise sessions for other FCC’s that are going through the FCC course, but they would not like to become a full-fledged FCT, they can do the 2 to 5 co-training sessions with a full-fledged FCT and become an authorized FCC exercise facilitator. Later, if they so desire, they can work towards becoming a full-fledged FCT.
