The international therapist card issued by AHDE is valid for one year and can be renewed after that period.
You will receive a digital version of the card (in PNG or PDF format) to share on your social media platforms, along with a link on our website that verifies the courses you have previously completed.
With the digital card, you also have the option to print it at a preferred print shop, following the required standards and quality guidelines.
It’s important to note that AHDE does not provide courses, but we validate the courses you have already taken and include that information in your therapist level. Additionally, we internationally validate all the documentation provided to us.
If you are looking for courses, we recommend checking the courses registered with AHDE.
One of the main challenges for therapists is entering the international market. Having an international card in your portfolio has been reported as a significant advantage by over 90% of therapists registered with AHDE. According to their feedback, this credential opens up more opportunities to serve clients worldwide.
It’s worth mentioning that you don’t need to speak or offer services in another language. By serving clients who speak your language but reside in other countries, you can leverage this international opportunity and gain more credibility with our card.

- Internationally validate your qualification as a therapist;
