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 SmokingŪ Facilitator Trainings will take place virtually through 2021.
Otherwise, please reach out to the FFS Team via email, FreedomFromSmoking@lung.org.
The first three modules of the training are available online on-demand and must be completed prior to the 3-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)
The three-hour live web-based Facilitator Skill Builder Workshop will take place on Wednesday, August 11, 2021 from 1:00 PM - 4:00 PM (MT).
Registration is required to attend. Space is limited. Cost to participate in the training is $400, which includes a 3-year Freedom From SmokingŪ Facilitator certification.
By completing the Freedom From SmokingŪ Facilitator Training program, you are helping to make a positive impact in your community. Participants will be certified to lead Freedom From SmokingŪ group clinics and help tobacco users end their addiction and begin a new tobacco-free phase of their lives.
