For those interested in the apprentice program, we ask that you study with someone who has been certified by IDI. We require 50 hours of training with an IDI certified professional. At this time, we can only count the hours spent studying with a certified intimacy professional with IDI towards your apprentice application. Many of our certified professionals work as independent artists and their workshops are advertised here for your convenience. For any questions, please reach out to us at
