Become Certified by the American Institute of Stress

Certification is open to healthcare professionals, clinics, hospitals, institutes of higher learning, corporations and *products that demonstrate clear evidence of diligence and commitment in upholding the tenants of the AIS.  Awarding of the AIS Seal reflects your commitment to making truly significant strides toward providing individuals with stress reduction tools, training and techniques and a reduced stress environment in your workplace and/or that you have developed a product* that reduces stress levels and improves the health and quality of life for consumers.  Our goal is to encourage corporations, consumer product manufacturers and individuals to adopt and incorporate more stress management techniques and science into daily life, the workplace, and *products. As time goes on and advances in stress management become routine, we will re-evaluate our criteria and threshold to be even more demanding. We expect that advances in mainstream Stress Awareness efforts and education will ultimately be the end result, and that’s great news for all.
