Forest Bathing Guide Certification Pathway

The first step is a 5-day Immersion. Then, you begin your 12-week Training & Mentored Practice.

FTHub · Certified Forest Bathing Guide: Immersion + 12-week Training & Mentored Practice = Certification

The pathway of the Forest Bathing Guide training and certification works as follows:

  • A

    Immersion, with various trainers and international experts, designed according to the training format you choose:

    · Blended training format: 5 days in a natural environment, in person.

    · Live online training format: 5 mornings, afternoons or evenings (depending on your time zone) with live online classes (videoconference) + group work (3 h/day - 15 hours) and self-guided practices (2-3 h/day).

  • B

    12 weeks, with two parallel components (live online for both formats):

    · Training. Classes with a trainer or professor to integrate the learning of the Immersion week and receive additional content from the programme (13 hours).

    · Mentored Practice. Throughout these 12 weeks, a mentor will accompany and help you with personalised attention as you guide Forest Bathing walks so that you deepen your knowledge of the content and develop your skills as a guide: this final practice will allow you to integrate what you’ve learned into your work practice.

After the 12 weeks, you’ll have 4 additional weeks to finish your practice (12+4 weeks).

It is a certification requirement to have completed a “First Aid Training” or “Wilderness First Aid Training”, as part of your Mentored Practice.
