Program Eligibility

— Host Organizations —

ICEF reviews each prospective Host Organization for suitability when it comes to hosting an Intern or Trainee. As a J-1 visa sponsor, we are responsible for ensuring each Host Organization meets the necessary requirements for participating in the program.

In order to work with ICEF, Host Organizations must:

 

  • Guarantee at least 32 hours of training experience per week

  • Demonstrate sufficient qualified staff to provide constant supervision of the Intern/Trainee
    (Host Organizations with fewer than 5 full-time permanent, onsite employees cannot be considered)

     

  • Commit to fulfilling the components outlined in the DS-7002 Training/Internship Placement Plan for the full duration of the Intern/Trainee’s program

  • Provide a suitable training location (locations based in unsafe conditions, personal residences, warehouse environments, clinical settings, or requiring remote access cannot be considered)
