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 gives other important information regarding becoming an EFT practitioner.
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.
You will need to complete 5 written case studies after the workshop and these need to be submitted for assessment. This consists of 3 technical case studies (each of between 1 and 3 sessions) using specific EFT protocols plus two others using any of your new EFT skills. You may need to complete additional case studies if the trainer feels more practice is needed. A £75 fee is payable on submission of the above to pay for their review.
The trainer needs to review a full session either live or a video or audio can be submitted of a full live session (no more than one hour). There is a £105 fee to pay for reviewing the session and providing feedback.
You will need to have received 4 EFT sessions (from a formally trained 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.
Before you receive your final EFT Certificate, you will need to have completed 25 additional logged practice hours (of which half must be done after having attended the Level 2 training). No more than 2 practice hours can be logged against any one “client”. 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: the AAMET will be increasing this to 45 additional hours - expected within the next 12-18 months).
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.
