Endorsement Fees

1) Membership in IAITMH - $50.00

All Endorsement applicants are required to be a member of the IAITMH. The cost of membership is $50.00 annually. Aside from allowing you to pursue Endorsement, membership grants you discounted registration to our infant mental health conference each fall. Click here to join the IAITMH now.

 

2) Application Fee

Once you have joined the IAITMH, the next step is to apply for Endorsement®. You will complete a preliminary application on EASy at which time you will select the level for which you would like to apply. At this time you will be asked to pay an application fee, which varies by level. The current fee schedule is as follows:

Infant Family Associate (Level I) $15
Infant Family Specialist (Level II) $25
Infant Mental Health Specialist (Level III) $25
Infant Mental Health Mentor (Level IV) $25

 

3) Processing Fee

After you have submitted the preliminary application, your membership and payment of the application fee will be verified, after which you will receive a username and password to get into EASy and begin building your portfolio. You will have an advisor to guide you through this process. After you have filled out all sections of your portfolio and your advisor has verified that it is fully complete, you will need to submit your application for review. This will prompt you to pay the processing fee, which again varies by level. The current fee schedule is as follows:

Infant Family Associate (Level I) $25
Infant Family Specialist (Level II) $50
Infant Mental Health Specialist (Level III) $200
Infant Mental Health Mentor (Level IV) $300

 

At this point, your application will be reviewed by 2 current Endorsed providers. Upon approval you will either be awarded your Endorsement (Level I and II) or you will be ready to sit for the Endorsement exam (Level III and IV).

 

4) Annual Renewal

Once you have been granted Endorsement, you will be required to earn 15 training hours (actual hours, not CEUs) in the field of infant mental health every year. You will also be required to renew your membership in the IAITMH ($50.00 each year) to keep your credential active. This is the only cost of renewal. To read more about annual renewal, click here.
