Foundations Training

Approximate time commitment: 35 hours in a combination of online and in person

Core Concepts

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
Pro-EFW Trainer but once you begin Foundations Training  you must stay with the same Trainer for Focus and Integration Training.

CONTENT: Attend a Pro-EFW approved Foundations 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 Foundations Training, it is optimal for candidates to absorb, integrate and begin practicing the concepts and approaches learned in the training to prepare for Focus Training week.

It is important to choose the trainer that best fits you and your plans, not necessarily the trainer who is closest in location.
