10 Questions for Beginning the EFT Certification Process
1. How do I begin the process for certification?
Simply by taking an EFT Universe EFT Level 1 Workshop.
2. What are the requirements regarding client sessions?
We make this easy by providing you with session notes forms, and a detailed outline of how to complete a case history. You need to document 47 sessions using the session notes form, plus 3 case histories, to complete a total of 50 sessions.
3. Can I get any credit for the sessions that I do during the EFT Level 1 Workshop?
Yes, you can get credit immediately for tapping sessions with classmates by filling out the session notes form provided at the workshop. Additionally, if your workshop includes a "Tapping Day" with your trainer, you will get credit for the completion of 1 case history.
4. I have clients that I work with repeatedly, is there a limit per individual? What is the maximum number of sessions I can do with one person?
Multiple sessions with the same client count toward the total of 50 (e.g., 30 single session clients + 10 two-session clients (10x2=20) = 50 sessions). Seeing only 5 clients for 10 sessions each, for example, is not recommended. We want you to get as much experience with as many different clients as possible, though you might work with certain clients over the course of several sessions. If you're planning to do more than 5 sessions with a particular client, check with your mentoring consultant to determine if your plan is acceptable.
5. What is the cost of certification?
We've worked hard to keep the cost of certification as affordable as possible. You pay for this in several stages; for instance you'll have paid about 1/3 of the total after you've taken a Level 1 and 2 EFT workshop. With the average mentoring cost of $550,* the two $99 exams plus approximately $100 for additional required reading we recommend that you check out the costs for certification outlined on this page to get a more complete idea of the costs involved.
6. How many workshops do I have to take for the basic certification?
To become an EFT Practitioner you need to take a EFT Level 1 & Level 2 Workshop. Once you've gained some experience with EFT, you'll hone your skills by taking a second EFT Level 2 Workshop or approved Specialty Workshop with a different trainer.
7. Why do I have to take that second Level 2 workshop with a different trainer?
The curriculum was developed based on 15 years of training thousands of people, and observing the pace at which they become proficient in EFT. Your EFT Level 1 and your first EFT Level 2 workshops are carefully designed to give you the basics, but you're still a novice at the end of EFT Level 2, with just enough experience to begin practicing. You will find that when you take your second EFT Level 2 or Specialty Workshop, your experience will now allow you to assimilate a lot more of the curriculum. Many participants have exclaimed that the second EFT Level 2 feels like a completely different workshop and in no way repetitive or redundant.
Of course you'll be hearing from a different trainer, you'll have unique demonstrations, and practice EFT with new friends too. You'll find EFT sinks much deeper into your awareness after the second EFT Level 2 or Specialty Workshop.
8. I am a (writer/teacher/full-time therapist/mother). Is there a deadline to meet any of these requirements?
Most people take about 1 to 2 years to complete the certification process. We prefer you complete the process within one year.
9. Do I have to submit my application form, fee and other signed paperwork before I take the exams?
Yes. After taking your Level 1 and Level 2 EFT workshops the first step to certification is to send in your practitioner candidate application paperwork and fees. Most people prefer to take the exams directly after completing the 2nd EFT Level while the information is still fresh in their mind.
10. Sometimes this feels a little overwhelming. How does one choose a mentor and what is involved in that process?
Frequently your Level 1 and Level 2 EFT trainer is a mentor. If you feel you have a good connection, you may mutually agree to work together. Otherwise, you can contact a mentoring consultant on this list. You must keep in mind that the mentorship is an ongoing process in which you submit your work for evaluation and receive feedback to steer your development as an EFT practitioner. Most mentors will ask you to submit a small number of cases first, rather than sending all 47 session notes and 3 case histories at once.
Here at EFT Universe, we want this experience to be of benefit to you and bring your EFT skills to a whole new level.
