APPLICATION FOR ACCREDITATION WITH INFTA

INFTA Forest Therapy Guide in action

INFTA-Certified and Accredited Forest Therapy Guides wishing to extend their accreditation with INFTA are required to use the INFTA CPD Application Form below. Please read carefully the requirements for obtaining or extending accreditation with INFTA.

INFTA-Certified and Accredited Forest Therapy Guides have to participate in Continuous Professional Development (CPD).

To uphold accreditation, an INFTA-Certified and Accredited Forest Therapy Guide is – within each year – expected to:

  • provide evidence that 10 or more guided Forest Therapy walks were conducted successfully (the minimum number of participants per walk is five)
  • obtain all relevant licences and insurance policies
  • participate in one or more CPD workshops offered by INFTA, its accredited training providers or partner organisations

If you have compiled all relevant information and wish to extend your accreditation with INFTA, please fill in the required information on the INFTA CPD Application Form tab.

Accreditation with INFTA is on an annual basis (i.e., accreditation is awarded for 12 months), in parallel to INFTA’s financial year (1 July to 30 June the following year). The annual accreditation fee has to be paid upfront once accreditation is granted by INFTA.
Please ensure that you keep evidence of each of the guided Forest Therapy walks which you have conducted (e.g., images, feedback forms, flyers). INFTA may conduct an audit of the information you have provided in the application for accreditation.
