Steps to Endorsement®
FIMH-E® is currently in the pilot phase and will open to the public in 2022. Once FIMH-E® is open, you will be able to register within our EASy (FAIMH’s secure web-based software for compiling Endorsement® Applications). After you complete your registration, you will receive notification from the Endorsement Coordinator regarding whether your application has been accepted.
You will be assigned an Endorsement® Advisor who will guide you through your Endorsement® Application. Additionally, there is an in-system help tool and in-system messaging that allows you to ask questions along the way.
Complete your Endorsement® Application. EASy will require you to agree to FAIMH’s Endorsement® Agreement and Code of Ethics. Applicants are required to complete each tab of the EASy application including Education, Work, Trainings, Supervision, and References.
Other recommended steps prior to submitting your application:
▶ Review the Competency Guidelines®
▶ Read the Getting Started Guide(s)
Once your application is complete, you may submit it for review. Be sure to submit your completed application by the deadline.
Submitted applications will undergo a 2-tier review by FAIMH’s Endorsement® Reviewing Team. Infant Family Associate and Infant Family Specialist earn Endorsement® after the reviewing process is complete. Infant Mental Health Specialist and Infant Mental Health Mentor (Clinical, Policy, and Research/Faculty) Applications are reviewed and notified regarding eligibility to sit for the Endorsement® Exam. Infant Mental Health Specialist and Infant Mental Health Mentor Applicants will also need to successfully pass the Endorsement® Exam.
