What to consider before applying

  • Make sure you have completed the relevant Two Day course

    Before you apply, you must have completed the MHFA England Two Day course in the same subject area in which you are applying for Instructor Training (Adult, Youth, or Armed Forces), within the last three years.

    You will not be able to apply if you have not completed the relevant Two Day course.

    This allows you to experience the course content and decide if it will be suitable for you to deliver, before you commit to the Instructor Training programme.

    All applicants need to be familiar with the Two Day course content to properly engage with the Instructor Training programme.

    If you haven't already attended one of our Two Day courses you can book onto a course here.

  • Have your Two Day course certificate to hand 

    When you apply for Instructor Training you will be asked to upload a copy of your Two Day course certificate as a PDF or image. Please ensure you have this to hand when you begin the application process.

    Your certificate would have been sent to the email address you used to sign up to the Two Day course. If you do not have your certificate, please email certificates@mhfaengland.org or call 0203 928 0760.

    Some topics covered in MHFA England Instructor Training may be distressing. If you have any concerns after completing the Two Day course, please let the team know before you start the Instructor Training programme.
