Certification

I had the most delightful time at the IfHI conference, and I want to thank you, thank you for what was obviously a monumental effort on your part. It was a pleasure to correspond with you and an even greater pleasure to meet and chat with you in person (I'm the one who broke my leg). I note on the website that I passed the certification exam cum laude; I am thrilled.  Over achiever that I am, I missed most of the pool party on Friday because I was studying for the exam.  I got there just in time to eat some delicious beef and salad.  Wow! Every last detail was looked after; everyone I spoke to made a positive comment.  I mean, come on, right down to the pencils and pads and ice water!  We felt so pampered as your honored guests.

Certification is a central concept at IfHI conferences. It allows consumers to make informed decisions about the qualifications of educators and  practitioners who wish to employ these modalities in clinical and teaching environments. Certification takes place at every IfHI Conference. All certification applicants must complete an examination that is administered at the conference. Certification is open to all applicants and does not require prior licensing or certification in any other healing art.  Upon certification, Fellows of the Institute have access to the extensive IfHI online resources (library and special members-only benefits).

Certification is available at two different levels:

New Fellow Certification

This is the first level of certification. It entails the following:

  • The test is open to all applicants. The examination fee is $150.00 (US).
  • The applicant must take and pass an open-book multiple choice examination on the basic principles behind the science of blood group polymorphism, special topics including genetics and nutritional immunology,  and codes of professional conduct.
  • Source materials for the examination are the IfHI Fellow Examination Study Guide and any supplemental materials on the IfHI Educational website.
  • Upon satisfactory completion of the test, the applicant will receive a Certificate of Registration and a registration number as a Fellow of the Institute for Human Individuality. Should they wish, registrants can append the initials FIFHI (Fellow of the Institute) to their other professional titles.
  • Registration includes a practitioner listing on IfHI website.
  • The certification fee includes a one year membership in the Institute.

 

Master Level Certification

This is the advanced level of certification. It entails the following:

  • The test is only open to current Fellows of the Institute. The examination fee is $150.00 (US).
  • The applicant must take and pass an open-book multiple choice examination on the advanced principles behind the science of blood group polymorphism, special topics including epigenetics, advanced biometrics and nutrigenomics.
  • Source materials for the examination are the IfHI Master Examination Study Guide and any supplemental materials on the IfHI Educational website.
  • Upon satisfactory completion of the test, the applicant will receive a Certificate of Mastery Registration and a registration number as a Master of the Institute for Human Individuality.

  • Certified Masters of the Institute qualify for in-office preceptorship with Dr. D'Adamo at the D'Adamo Clinic, are allowed to lecture to public and at future IfHI conferences, can organize regional conferences and provide regional Fellow of the Institute testing. Masters of the Institute also gain admission to restricted Colloquiums at future IfHI conferences.
  • The certification fee includes a one year membership in the Institute.
