We acknowledge all the wonderful EFT practitioners who have already spent time, money and energy obtaining certifications, and are helping people worldwide with EFT. In recognition of this, those who have obtained other EFT certifications can be grandparented into the EFT Universe Certification program. The intent is to honor the trainings and certifications that have been offered over time, while upholding the high standards of Clinical EFT at EFT Universe.
These standards have enabled professional associations in medicine and psychology to recognize EFT Universe certifications, leading to the professional practice of EFT in many institutions. These include hospitals, clinics, schools, veterans treatment centers, state and local governments, and insurance companies.
The grandparenting policy is as follows:
Any set of Level 1 and 2 workshops you have taken with a trainer not certified by EFT Universe makes you eligible to take an online test to become an Intermediate Practitioner Candidate. This test follows the curriculum of the Level 1 and 2 workshops, and the content of the required readings. You can take the test here. If you successfully "test out" of Level 1 and your first Level 2 in this way, you are then considered an Intermediate Practitioner Candidate, and you can complete the remaining requirements to become fully certified as an EFT Intermediate Practitioner.
The online test determines if the previous courses or certifications you took (e.g. EFT-CC, EFT-ADV, ACEP CEHP, DCEP, or EFT trainings, AMT or AAMET Level 1, 2, 3 or Trainer) followed the curriculum and covered the content of Level 1 and 2 workshops, whether you have retained that knowledge, and whether you've completed the required readings. Once you have passed the test, you can submit your certification application and payment.
