EFT Practitioner Certification: Grandparenting Information

clinical EFT handbook

We acknowledge all the wonderful EFT practitioners who have already spent time, money, and energy obtaining certifications in EFT and are helping people worldwide with Emotional Freedom Techniques.

In recognition of this, those who have obtained other EFT certifications have an opportunity to apply to be grandparented into the EFT Universe certification program. The intent is to honor the trainings and certifications that have been offered over time, yet still uphold the high standards of Clinical EFT at EFT Universe.

These standards have led to accreditation of EFT Universe trainings as CME (Continuing Medical Education) courses for doctors (American Medical Association), nurses (American Nurses Credentialing Commission), psychologists and psychotherapists (American Psychological Association), and social workers (NASWB).


The EFTU grandparenting policy for those who have obtained previous EFT certifications is as follows:

• The first step is to take the Level 1 and 2 EFT INT-1 Knowledge Exam, also known as the Intermediate EFT Practitioner Exam. This exam covers the curriculum of the EFT Level 1 and 2 workshops, and the content of the EFT Universe EFT practitioner candidate required readings. If you successfully "test out" of EFT Level 1 and your first EFT Level 2 in this way, you are then considered an Intermediate EFT Practitioner Candidate, and you can complete the remaining certified practitioner candidate requirements to apply become fully certified as an EFT Practitioner. 

You can take the EFT INT-1 Knowledge Exam here.

The online exam determines if the previous courses or certifications you took (e.g. EFT-CC, EFT-ADV, ACEP EFT, ACEP CEHP or DCEP, or AMT or AAMET Level 1, 2, 3 or Trainer) followed the curriculum and covered the content of EFT Level 1 and 2 Workshops, whether you have retained that knowledge, and whether you've completed the required readings.

• Once you have passed the Knowledge Exam, you can submit your EFT Practitioner Certification Candidate Application and required fees to EFT Universe.
