Placenta Encapsulation Training


IPPA has a one of a kind, in depth placenta training program with the option to certify. More and more encapsulators are finding that their clients are wanting a formally trained specialist. Our program ensure that you have outstanding educational background in everything placenta preparation related, but also a certifying body that stands behind its students and their abilities. The placenta training program will take between 12-16 weeks to complete. 


You have 6 months from training completion to encapsulat 3 placentas and have your client fill out a survey form, read research articles and answer 6 essay questions, write a one page position paper, complete 4 reviews, take an online blood born pathogens training and an online food safety training.
