Venture Trail Member Prerequisite

The Center for Nature Informed Therapy (CNIT) primarily reserves access to the Venture Trail (VT) program for graduates of our Nature Informed Therapy training program. This ensures a consistent level of expertise and understanding among our members. However, we recognize that there are seasoned professionals who, through their experiences and previous studies, have acquired a deep understanding of Nature Informed Therapy (NIT). For such individuals, we offer a pre-approval process. If you believe you have a comprehensive grasp of NIT principles and practices, you can apply for a review. Upon successful evaluation, you may bypass the initial training and gain direct access to the VT program, joining a community of like-minded professionals committed to advancing Nature Informed Therapy. To apply to bypass the training, please submit our VT Program Pre-Approval Form.
