Since 2009 the association has its own doula training. The trainees do not need to have own birthing experience, but they need to assist births for their certification to Szüléstámogató Dúla, which corresponds to the DONA certification. The course runs over 9 months and encompasses 85 hours teaching across 12 modules and another 180 hours of self-study is required. Certification is given by written evaluation.
The Hungarian association keeps strong contacts with the Austrian Doula Association (DiA), both associations often organise courses with the same speakers.
The organisation also puts the accent on post-partum Doula courses and proposes childbirth education classes.
