Topics Covered in the Three Levels of Clinical EFT Training

eft tapping 3 levels of training

Each training stage, Level 1, 2, and 3, is a two-day class. There are 8 learning modules in each level. As well as step-by-step instruction in all the core concepts of EFT, the classes include exercises to build your skill and confidence. The modular nature of the training, with each module building on the skills learned in the previous module, has been shown to result in a thorough understanding of how to practice EFT.

Each level includes practical work with others, with the quantity of work increasing each time, as you become more experienced with EFT.

These levels of training may be taken in order to become more fluent with EFT, or to meet the requirements for EFT Certification. Below you can see the topics covered in each module of each level of EFT training. Levels 1 and 2, and the specialty workshops, offer a beginner and intermediate level understanding of EFT; Level 3 workshops are suitable for those with a thorough existing knowledge of EFT.

If you'd like to schedule an EFT Level 1, 2, or 3 training for your organization, we can arrange one provided you have a minimum registration of 20 people. Level 1 and 2 may be taken together or in quick succession, however, it is recommended that Level 3 be taken six months or more after Level 2, to allow you to build proficiency in delivering EFT.

"The work you are doing to standardize EFT and to get it the professional respect it deserves is so appreciated!"
-Karen Brodie, EFT Int-1

"I had been tapping with DVDs and online videos for many years and thought I knew EFT. What a shocker to take an EFT Level 1 workshop and discover how much more there is to the technique. I was only scratching the surface of EFTs power before this workshop. And the scientific basis of it all became very clear to me and helped me understand what's happening in my body during EFT sessions. Thank you EFT Universe for providing these excellent clinical trainings."
