DFIST was created to verify and promote training programmes which are aimed at adults working with young people and children.
DFIST is an independent organisation which verifies training programmes that are aimed at supporting young people and children. The DFIST panel has over 100 years combined experience of working with young people and children. Members of the DFIST panel have created over 40 training programmes that are currently in use around the country. Each training programme that we accept for consideration is expected to display that it is aimed at risk reduction with regards to violent and aggressive behaviour.
Why choose the DFIST as your external verification body?
Each panel member has extensive training and hands on experience from working with violent and aggressive children and young people. Along with our low cost membership fees, DFIST is the organisation to help you get the seal of approval you're looking for to promote your training programme.
