Forest Bathing Guide certification pathway

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

FTH · Certified Forest Bathing Guide: Immersion + Mentored Practice = Certification

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

  • A

    Immersion (5 days), 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 daily) and self-guided practices (2-3 h daily).

  • B

    Mentored Practice (12 weeks, 3 months), through live online classes (videoconference), for both training formats, in which you will integrate the learning of the initial week and you will receive additional content from the programme. Throughout these 12 weeks, a mentor will accompany you and help you with personalised attention 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.

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