How to Become an IIPA Certified Iridology Instructor?

Instructor Certification Procedures

An IIPA Instructor Certification identifies you as having attained a standardized level of education excellence. This status inevitably sets you apart, as clients and students would feel confident selecting you, knowing you have undergone some intense training and a high-quality education.  The following requirements are for all IIPA Certified Iridologists who are interested in becoming an IIPA Certified Iridology Instructor:

  • Attend the IIPA Annual Symposiums.
  • Write an article for the IIPA Newsletter once a year.

Each Student Instructor will be given 3 topics to choose from for their Practice Teaching.  (For our members outside of North America, a Skype presentation may be an option, please contact the Central Office for further information.)  The scoring for the Practice Teaching will be:

90% and above - Pass
80% and above - Pass with optional Instructor Mentorship
