Professionals with Floortime related training from a university or an approved organization may be eligible for advanced placement into the DIRFloortime® Professional Certificate Training Program.
In particular, professionals that have a PLAY Consultant certificate from PLAY Project or have a DIR-FCD certificate from the Profectum Foundation, may have the opportunity to advance place into the official DIRFloortime® Professional Certificate Program as follows:
Profectum Foundation: ICDL and Profectum have a structured agreement on cross-recognition of our training programs and DIR® certificates. Professionals with at least a Bachelor's degree and that have earned a Profectum DIR-FCD CL1 certificate or higher may advance into the DIRFloortime® Training Program DIR 203 course.
PLAY Project: ICDL and PLAY Project have a structured agreement on cross-recognition of our training programs. Professionals that complete the PLAY Project training to become a PLAY Consultant may be issued a DIRFloortime® Basic Certificate and may enter the DIRFloortime® Training Program with advanced placement into DIR 202.
Others: If you have specific training and have earned a degree or certificate from a university like Fielding Graduate University or others that are providing very specific DIR coursework or you have a certificate from an organization like the Greenspan Floortime Approach, you may also be eligible for advanced placement.
$25 USD non-refundable application fee payable today to have your credentials reviewed. Please review the following for next steps and possible additional fee:
There are three possible outcomes of the initial review. First, you may be approved for a certificate to be immediately issued. If you are approved for a certificate, you will be invoiced for an additional $50 USD certificate fee. The second possibility is that you are approved to advance place into a course, but not issued a certificate. In this case, you will not be charged anything beyond the $25 application fee. The third possibility is that your application is denied.
