Our LIVE and CORRESPONDENCE courses open the door to a rewarding career in the Natural Health field. You will learn an amazing skill that will teach you about body systems and lifestyle changes to help both you and your clients lead healthier, happier lives. Our instructors are certified through the International Iridology Practitioners Association, which means our courses are approved and updated with the latest information in iridology via the annual International Iridology Practitioners Association Iridology Symposiums.
Level 1 and Level 2 Courses are the Comprehensive Iridology courses required for Iridology Certification via the International Iridology Practitioners Association.
Certification by International Iridology Practitioners Association (IIPA) identifies one as having attained the highest level of education available in the field and recognizes your skill set at a standardized professional level.
Clients can be assured that an IIPA certified Iridologist has received an excellent education to achieve IIPA’s certification requirements. As well, IIPA Certified Iridology Instructors are required to upgrade their training every two years by attending Instructor meetings and symposiums to learn the latest in Iridology.
Both the Correspondence and Live Iridology Classes consist of both Level 1 and Level 2 Comprehensive Iridology required for Iridology Certification via IIPA.
IIPA Certified Iridology Course Descriptions (as taken from IIPA)
1. Comprehensive Iridology – Level I (includes Iridology Workbook, instructional videos and Certified Iridology Chart). This material covers the history and development of Iridology, discussion of models- European Iridology, American Iridology, Comprehensive Iridology TM, psychological patterns, iris photography, etc. Includes basic eye anatomy and physiology, topography and mapping of the iris, constitutional types (Lymphatic, Biliary and Hematogenic) and their subtypes (by color), iris structure (by types) and signs, pigmentation, lacunae, pupil tonus, etc.
It would be helpful to have some anatomy and physiology background before taking this course but it is not necessary and is not a prerequisite.
2. Comprehensive Iridology Class – Level II
This class places emphasis on combinations of signs, structure and pigment details, contraction furrow signs, pupil tonus in detail, Lacuna types, exceptions to rules, specific constitutions and syndromes, basic sclera signs, further psychological pattern information, research issues, analysis and live practice for practicum preparation, etc.
Steps to Becoming an IIPA Certified Iridologist
1) Attend a Level 1 and 2 IIPA Certification Course live or take Georgina’s Course via correspondence.
(All of Our live and correspondence courses consist of both Level 1 and Level II and meet these IIPA requirements).
2) Complete the 3 part IIPA Certification Exam
- 10 Iris Evaluations In class, you will learn how to complete an iris evaluation on someone. Part of the requirement to become a Certified Iridologist is that you complete 10 iris evaluations and give them back to your instructor for review and marking. These can be completed during the course or you can mail them back to your instructor in a reasonable amount of time (discuss this with your instructor).
- Complete the Case Study Analysis
Your Instructor will send you a color picture of a set of eyes and a brief health history of that individual for you to complete a detailed Iridology analysis. Upon completion you will send it back to your instructor for marking.
- Write the 4 hour Final Proctored Exam
The exam will be mailed from I.I.P.A. to a Proctor (Notary Public, teacher or librarian for example) and you will arrange a time to write the exam based on your schedules. The proctor will mail the exam back to I.I.P.A. for grading.
IIPA Exam Fee: $175 USD to be paid to IIPA central Office
The Level I and II Iridology courses as well as IIPA’s complete testing procedure can take place before an anatomy and physiology class is completed. A 60 hour anatomy and physiology course is required before receiving IIPA certification.
After you have completed the anatomy and physiology requirement, the certification candidate must submit a transcript of a completed course, before receiving the IIPA Certification Certificate.
The 60 hour course should be designed to provide a deeper understanding of human anatomy (structure) and physiology (function) primarily consisting of how the organs function and to provide an understanding of the body systems.
Option No. 1: students may take this course from a university, community college, acupuncture school, massage school, etc. Minimum requirement is 60 hours of actual study.
Option No. 2: if a local school is not available, we accept Anatomy & Physiology distance learning from several distance schools. If you have any questions about the anatomy and physiology requirement or about courses you are considering, please contact Ean, Kianna, or Georgina to see if your course meets the IIPA requirement.
IIPA approved Anatomy and Physiology Correspondence Courses are listed at the bottom of this page.
***Upon the successful completion of the IIPA certification courses, the 10 iris evaluations, the case study analysis, and the IIPA proctored Exam, and submission of A & P requirement, the student will become certified by the International Iridology Practitioners Association (I.I.P.A.)
