The topics of Canada’s hidden history of relationship with Indigenous peoples and lingering racism against Indigenous today, can be very sensitive. A sensitivity is not a good enough reason to avoid these topics, but the sensitivity demands a high level of skill in the course facilitators to ensure the safety of participants. Certified ICC trainers/facilitators have adult education theory and practice, facilitation skill, theory and practice in facilitating difficult conversations, and in-depth knowledge of the curriculum areas. Certified ICC Facilitators have proven their skills and knowledge in a proctored exam and meet a quality of standard as set by the Indigenous Reconciliation Group.
