EFT Training & Certification
Are you called to help people change their lives for the better?
Being an EFT practitioner is fun, exciting and rewarding work. It's also serious business. Working with people's issues requires skill, real confidence based on experience, good intuition and enough personal development to ‘get yourself out of the way’.
You can’t really get that from books, videos or an online course.
Live workshops are the heart of our EFT Certification program, followed by lots of practice and personal consultation with your instructor. You get empowerment, encouragement and feedback tailored to your individual needs. Please check out our requirements for certification and our EFT curriculum below.
The cost of our certification package is currently $800 inclusive.

- 50 sessions with clients
- Ethics Requirement

Requirements in Detail:
EFT Level 1 & 2 workshops These are live two day workshops that augment theory and technique with demonstrations, discussion and practice sessions. Our curriculum holds very close to Gary Craig’s original EFT standards and is geared toward addressing the real world issues your clients will bring to you, from severe traumatic memories to chronic back pain to cravings for chocolate. Even if you’ve been doing EFT for years, we're confident you’ll find real value in these workshops.
EFT Certification Contract & Payment A simple form to gets the ball rolling once you've taken EFT Level 1 and 2. The contract spells out what is required of you and what you can expect from us.

50 Sessions with Clients Our workshops are truly awesome, but practice gives you the confidence you’ll need to put yourself out there. We require only a simple log of your practice sessions with notes to bring to consultation.
All sessions must be one hour or longer
They may include Matrix Reimprinting
Must include a minimum of 30 different clients
At least 15 sessions must be with "real" clients (not friends, family or swap)
Group sessions don't count
An informed consent form must be offered and signed by all clients
You may charge for sessions or not, as you see fit
Ethics Requirement Read the book Creating Healing Relationships—Professional Standards for Energy Therapy Practitioners by Dorothea Hover-Kramer, and take the online exam. This requirement is waived for licensed therapists and social workers.
Personal Work It's so essential to clear our own issues if we want to work with others. It’s also important to know how it feels being an EFT client. We require our students to log 15 EFT sessions minimum as a client. Sessions should be at least one hour long and may include Matrix Reimprinting. Sessions may be done with swap partners, though it is highly recommended that you do at least 3 with an experienced practitioner.
Consultation This is where you bring your challenging cases and problems that have come up in your practice sessions. It's hard to overstated how important this is! We require a minimum of 6 sessions - 3 one-on-one and 3 group via Zoom. You are welcome to attend more than 3 group sessions and you may continue even after graduation.
Recorded Sessions With your client's permission you'll record a Zoom session to the cloud and submit the file. Rob will review the session with you. This is done once you've completed 35 or the 50 sessions. Additional recorded sessions may be required.
Liability insurance We recommend coverage when you start logging sessions. It’s required to be a Clinic provider and to take the final exam. If you aren't already covered, EMPI seems to offer a pretty good policy for around $250 a year.
Final Exam Having completed and submitted all other requirements, students must take and pass an open-book, online exam. Don’t be anxious. Unless you’ve somehow slept through the workshops and lost your manuals, you'll pass with flying colors.
Once you've passed the exam, you'll receive your Diploma and our certified practitioner logo for use on your website, business cards and marketing materials. And you can now be listed as a Certified EFT Practitioner on our directory!
So How Long Will All This Take?
It mostly depends on how many practice sessions you log each week. For example at 2 per week it would take 6 months. At 3 a week that's about 4 months. We actually give you a full 12 months to complete everything - after that there's a $100 continuation fee to re-up. Most students take around 6 months to complete the requirements.
One of the wonderful and awesome things that often happens in our program is that fellow students become friends and future colleagues - swapping sessions and supporting each other through the certification process.
New Benefit! Check this out! Once you've completed the ethics requirement and logged 15+ practice sessions, we'll be listing you in our Practitioner Directory as an Intern Practitioner. You don't have to be certified to begin charging. More than one student has earned enough to pay for the entire program before graduation.
