Taking the INFACT course and participating in the 5 day intensive was monumental in my own personal recovery and launching my career. I had been searching to practice in a field where I could really make a difference and this training has allowed me to do just that. I have worked in the field of mental health and addictions for many years and I have rarely seen such amazing transformations among my clients. I truly believe that food is medicine and when we treat our food addiction we get our lives back.

THE EUROPEAN CERTIFICATION BOARD REQUIREMENTS
In order to set up an international professional training for food addiction counseling and further qualification, requirements and understanding of treating sugar/food addiction and various eating disorders as an addiction, we have looked to the ECB job analysis identified for the ECB Alcohol and Drug Counselor examination. This credentialing and certification process provides a much needed standardization to the rapidly growing understanding of and evolving professions of sugar and food addiction treatment and recovery..

For professionals, becoming credentialed demonstrates competency, by having professional expertise and qualifications verified by an independent evaluator. It recognizes achievement of a standard of professional education and experience necessary to provide quality sugar and food addiction treatment, and recovery services. In addition, credentialing demonstrates ongoing learning through the required continuing education for recertification. Credentialing also provides employers, clients, and their families with the assurance that you have met internationally recognized standards of professionalism and ethics.

For the public, credentialing assures that service providers have met a level of competency as determined by an international consortium of professionals adhering to the highest standards of quality and integrity.

The following is a list of requirements for the ECB certification as FAC:
The INFACT will prepare and assist you in meeting these requirements.
The following will be assessed for each applicant individually.
These are the requirements and they are being further simplified.

The INFACT training contains 200 hours of education toward the 300 hours required by ECB specific to the FAC domains. Six hours must be specific to counselor ethics (already included in the FAC training).

Other equivalent courses and education will satisfy this requirement.

The INFACT will administer examinations equivalent to and approved by the ECB at the end of the training.

Everyone applying for the ECB certification needs to have recommendations from referees.

Applicants must sign a counselor specific code of ethics statement or affirmation statement.

1000 to 6000 hours of supervised work experience specific to the FAC domains in fields allied to this work. An associate´s degree in behavioral science may substitute for 1000 hours: a bachelor´s degree in behavioral science may substitute for 2000 hours: a master´s degree in behavioral science may substitute for 4000 hours.

40 hours of continuing education earned every two years.
