Webinar: Freedom From Smoking facilitator training: American Lung Association

As the country’s leading champion of lung health, the American Lung Association puts the well-being and health of our community first and foremost. We have been closely monitoring the spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19), following guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the World Health Organization (WHO), state and local health departments and our medical experts throughout this emerging public health situation. We are working to minimize the risk to all, especially those with lung disease or an impaired immune system. With that in mind, we are taking extra measures to adapt our mission delivery to a temporary virtual platform.

As a result, all Freedom From Smoking® Facilitator Trainings will take place virtually through June 30, 2020.

The first three modules of the training are available online on-demand and must be completed prior to the three-hour live web-based Facilitator Skill Builder Workshop:

  • Module 1: Tobacco Basics (40 minutes)
  • Module 2: How to Help People Quit (60 minutes)
  • Module 3: Freedom From Smoking Facilitator Training (3 hours)

Registration is required to attend. Space is limited. Cost to participate in the training is $400, which includes a 3-year Freedom From Smoking® Facilitator certification. Registration is free if you work in the state of Washington. For the code, please contact rachel.ram@lung.org.

By completing the Freedom From Smoking® Facilitator Training program, you are helping to make a positive impact in your community. Participants will be certified to lead Freedom From Smoking® group clinics and help tobacco users end their addiction and begin a new tobacco-free phase of their lives.
