What is the IFA?
Established in 1985 by aromatherapists for aromatherapists the International Federation of Aromatherapists (IFA) is the longest established organisation for professional aromatherapists in the world. Originally formed in 1985 to act as an independent representative body for the profession of aromatherapy and has in place Standards and Ethics and a Code of Practice. Accredited independent training establishments who adhere to the IFA’s high standards, such as the Welsh School of Aromatherapy, run the courses.
Since its formation, the Federation has been at the forefront of developments within the aromatherapy profession and pioneered the use of aromatherapy in hospitals, hospices; special care units and general practice. The IFA advances knowledge, practice, and expertise in aromatherapy throughout the world and supports ethical scientific research into essential oils by developing the science, art and practice of aromatherapy.
After successful completion of the WSA/YAC course you will be able to practice professionally as a Holistic Aromatherapist and students are invited to take the International Federation of Aromatherapists (IFA) examination to register as an accredited IFA aromatherapist.
