There’s a Design Sprint Facilitator Program that I would love to enroll in. It's a guided, online course with peers who are in similar roles as me, and it's run by Workshop Wednesday. It’s 1497 EUR (excl. VAT) and the reviews are excellent. There are recommendations from Miro, ING, E.ON, and Lalaland.ai.
The course is focused on learning-by-doing, so I'll be able to apply the principles and templates for our team. It’ll take me about four weeks to complete (4-6 hrs p/w). In short, it’ll help me improve our team's effectiveness by learning Design Sprint methods to improve my skills as a workshop and meeting facilitator. This way we can have fewer and better meetings, and have more creative input and problem-solving from the team.
The instructors are well-known in the industry. Their YouTube videos and Miro templates make it practical to apply the principles and strategies used by successful remote companies (Doist, Stripe, Gitlab, Basecamp).

P.S. should we offer it to the team? (they can tailor the program to our team)
