INFTA is the international authority setting standards for and organizing the training of Forest Therapy Guides in the region. This is done in close collaboration with established research institutes and organizations as part of an international framework.

Of particular mention is the development of the International Core Curriculum for Forest Therapy (ICCFT) (based on the evaluation by over 120 international experts), outstanding teaching and learning material and the training of lecturers and certified Forest Therapy Guides. The ICCFT forms the base for future training standards at the tertiary level for Certified Forest Therapy Guides world-wide.

The training in Forest Therapy itself is conducted in Australia by INFTA-accredited, supervised and monitored institutes. Given the demand of INFTA-certified Forest Therapy Guides in Australia alone (estimated to be 250+ until 2020), several cohorts will be trained starting 2018.

Please select the training cohort you are interested in:

  1. Training Cohort Australia – 18 to 22 September 2018.
  2. Training Cohort Australia – 28 November to 2 December 2018.
