IFS Certification Hours Documentation

IFS Certification Details

Click here for  IFS Certification details by the IFS Institute.

Laura recommends you find an IFS colleague to sign off on your 200 IFS client hours. That person needs to be familiar with the extent and length of your IFS practice.  They do not need to be IFS certified, but must be trained in IFS.

Your Certification Video Review

Your Certification Video is reviewed by a Lead Trainer, not by Laura.  Trainers who can review videos for certification may be found   here.

Consultation Hours for IFS Certification

If you need Consultation Hours for IFS Certification, it is your responsibility to keep track of Dates, Type (Group or Individual) and Hours met. 

If you’re a ways off from submitting your Certification Application, keep careful track of your Consultation Hours (with me and whoever else). Please let me know asap that you plan to count  X number of hours from X dates/times towards Certification so that we keep track together. 


Recordings of missed meetings do NOT count towards certification hours (per the IFS Institute).

Form 7G of Certification Application

  1. One month prior to submitting your Certification Application, complete your portion of Form 7G and submit to Laura for her to complete and sign.
