INFTA proudly introduces its new and innovative Forest Therapy Foundation course.

Getting started

This introductory online course will get you started learning about the science and practices of Forest Therapy for your personal health and well-being.

Learn at your own pace

This easy-to-follow online course has been designed for anyone who wishes to learn about Forest Therapy. Specially adapted for beginners, the INFTA Forest Therapy Foundation (FTF) does not require any previous formal prerequisite or knowledge.

Even better, you can learn about the many benefits of Forest Therapy as an innovative and effective Public health practice at your very own pace. Wherever you are, whenever you have time. The FTF has been customized for self-paced study.

Enjoy the course

While there is a lot to learn, our curriculum and course designers have paid special emphasis to make this course enjoyable and very easy to follow. The comprehensive Study Guide forms the backbone of the FTF. It is colourful, well-written, rich in contents – yet easy to read and understand. The Study Guide contains plenty of important links, images and tables, too.

FREE $500 voucher!

Better still, booking and paying for the FTF is easy and effortless. You don’t even run a financial risk: included in the price is a A$ 500.- voucher! The voucher entitles you to get a rebate of A$ 500.- when you book the full-fledged, six-months INFTA-Certified Forest Therapy Guide Training at later stage.


Based on the International Core Curriculum of Forest Therapy (evaluated and validated by 120+ experts from 20 countries) and backed by the latest research (see, for example, the International Handbook of Forest Therapy endorsed and supported by INFTA) you cannot find a more updated, trusted and comprehensive entry to learn about Forest Therapy.
