Facial action coding system classes
bridging science and practice
Certification means that you know the system well enough to code.
The strength of FACS coding is its objectivity.
It does not teach about measuring facial movement, however, nor does it train you to detect very subtle facial changes.
This means one can have confidence to use the technique in research.
Undertaking FACS training
Anyone seriously interested in how and why the face moves and there are numerous applications of that knowledge can benefit from this training.

The test is self-administered after the workshop.
Automated facial coding The computer algorithm for facial coding extracts the main features of face mouth, eyebrows etc.
Expertise in FACS requires accumulating extensive experience coding.
Can be shared among small groups.
