Perfect School Search


Seminar Training in Field Instruction (SIFI) is a nation-wide certification program that trains you to teach others about cultural competence, able to problem solve and overcome challenges experienced during field instruction, have meaningful discussions about the active role of field education in the schools, and process recordings related to cases in social work. The SIFI certification is offered in many higher education institutions in their graduate-level programs in Social Work or Social Sciences. You must have earned an MSW degree and possess a license in social work in the state in which you plan to carry-out social work practices. Most offerings of SIFI can be successfully completed online or in-person. The SIFI consists of 12 sessions for those students who have never supervised or mentored Master of Social Work (MSW) students before. However, if you have supervisory experiences or if you have successfully completed training in field education from another social work program, the SIFI training would consist of only three sessions.
