Focus Training Part 1 and 2: Core Concepts
DURATION for Part 1 is 35 hours (*this portion of the training is 46 hours in Quebec)
This is where you begin with the trainer that will see you through the process. It is important to choose the trainer that best fits you and your plans, not necessarily the trainer who is closest in location. You can take the Explorations Training with any EFW-CAN Trainer but once you begin Focus Training you must stay with the same Trainer for Focus and Integration Training.
CONTENT: Attend a EFW-CAN-approved Focus Training that teaches core EFW concepts, principles, ethics and safety considerations. This training also provides many opportunities for participants to engage in experiential exercises, interactions with the equines, practice sessions, and other experiential activities. In addition, each participant begins to create an individualized Scope of Practice statement that includes an outline of what s/he can and cannot incorporate into his/her EFW practice as a certification candidate.
After completing Part 1 of Focus Training, it is optimal for candidates to absorb, integrate and begin practicing the concepts and approaches learned in the training to prepare for Part 2 of Focus Training.

Focus Training Part 2: Scope of Practice
Duration: 35 hours (*this portion of the training is 23 hours in Quebec)
Content: Attend a EFW-CAN-approved Focus Training Part 2 that further develops and explores the EFW concepts, principles, ethics and safety considerations that were outlined in Part 1, and also includes practice sessions and other hands-on opportunities for participants. Participants will have outlined the areas where additional experience and/or training is needed to meet identified training and education goals in their Certification Progress Plan. Additionally, candidates complete the appropriate Levels of Expertise table (available on the EFW-CAN website on the certification page).
