For those wishing to become a practitioner, there is a £50 enrollment fee payable before the start of the first Level 2 training day, then a payment of £75 for marking written case studies. This is paid when you are ready to submit them.
It is also important your trainer feels happy with your skill and confidence in facilitating EFT sessions and this assessment is normally done informally whilst attending the Level 2 workshop.
If you wish to become an EFT practitioner, your trainer needs to be notified of your intention in advance of the Level 2 workshop so you can be supported to ensure your skills are developed appropriately. Perfection isn’t required, as for all new practitioners the real skill develops after attaining the accreditation, however a degree of confidence and understanding is needed. Working with people with their personal problems needs a high degree of respect and developed listening skills. If your trainer feels it appropriate you may be asked to spend some weeks practising and return to a future course for re-assessment.
The following describe other important information regarding becoming an EFT practitioner.
You will need to complete 5 case studies after the workshop and these need to be submitted for assessment. This consists of 5 technical case studies for specific EFT protocols. You may need to complete additional case studies if the trainer feels more practice is needed.
You will need to have received 4 EFT sessions (from a trainee or certified practitioner). This can be retrospective (i.e. if you have already had 4 sessions in the past then this counts).
You will need to have completed 6 hours mentoring / supervision after the Level 2 training.
You will need to pass a multiple choice AAMET online exam. The price as of Jan 2014 is £20.
Before you receive your final EFT Certificate, you will need to have completed 20 additional logged EFT sessions with family / friends. These can be started as soon as you have completed the Level 1 workshop. and need to be done on at least 10 different individuals). These should ideally be logged to ensure they have been done - it is not necessary to write them up. This is important as everyone is unique and responds differently to the EFT process and this experience is vital to develop confidence in EFT in the role of practitioner(Update: For those enrolling from April 2016 this is increased to 50 practice hours).
There is a non-refundable cost of £50 registration fee for would-be practitioners which is payable before the start of the Level 2 training. We monitor practitioners-to-be more closely so we can guide you to be highly successful practitioners. The payment also covers the cost of administering the practitioner route process, and providing access to a support service where you receive 6 months support for those who have questions and challenges during the process. Support is provided as follows - moving to the next level if needed: 1) Our closed Facebook support group, 2) Direct email support, 3) Scheduling a phone / skype call in more complex situations.
There is an additional £75 to be paid on submission of case studies which pays for them to be reviewed.
Update: For those enrolling from April 2016 you will need to either facilitate an EFT session for review in front of a trainer OR submit a video or audio recording for review. There will be a review charge of £120 (TBC).
Once having EFT Practitioner accreditation you can gain practitioner membership of the AAMET and have a practitioner listing. You will also need to attain CPD units each year (Continuing Professional Development) to remain a member and have 6 hours supervision.
