EFT Universe classes offer CE credits to mental health professionals and CME credits to medical professionals.

There are 2 EFT certification levels:

Your first step is to take a Level 1 EFT workshop. For a list of upcoming EFT workshops, click here. You can also review the class outline of EFT Workshops here.

• EFT Intermediate Practitioner-1 Requirements:

EFT Level 1 and 2 training completion.

EFT-INT Online Exam: This exam covers EFT basics, such as those skills taught in the Level 1 and 2 workshops and described in the required readings. Do not attempt to take this exam until you have first completed the necessary requirements.

Ethics Exam: This exam covers the material in two textbooks on professional standards and ethics. They are the Ethics Handbook for Energy Healing Practitioners, and Creating Healing Relationships. Do not attempt to take this exam until you have completed the necessary requirements.

Proficiency Training: Take a second EFT Level 2 workshop with a different trainer and demonstrate basic proficiency. You can substitute a Specialty Workshop with a different trainer for your second Level 2.

Practical Application 1: Supervised delivery of EFT sessions to at least 3 clients, that are reviewed by a mentoring consultant, either in person, on video, in writing, or online (e.g., Skype). Your mentoring consultant may be your EFT trainer, though if that person is not available or not a consultant, please use another from this list. 47 additional sessions with clients (total = 50 sessions, recorded on this simple Individual Session Notes form). Required readings, and 15 hours as an EFT client working on your personal issues. View case study guidelines here.

"I have now had an opportunity to examine in depth EFT Universe's Clinical EFT Levels 1, 2, and 3 training programs, including participation in some of the events, and I am impressed with its professionalism, compassion, and effectiveness. If you are not already a psychotherapist, this relatively brief training program will of course not make you one, but it will teach you how to use this important procedure and many of the subtleties of its application very well."
