What happens after I have completed my Level 2 course?
There are 6 steps to becoming an accredited EFT practitioner: Pre: certification
- Complete level 1 and 2 EFT training.
- Complete minimum of 4 case studies. You will receive a case study manual and I will offer you guidance through this process.
- Evaluation of a Complete EFT Session. Your trainer will observe and evaluate a full EFT session. In place of a live, in-person session, your trainer may instead allow and evaluate a video- OR audio-recording of a live session. The live session (and followup discussion) will then count as one of the mandatory case studies( as above)
- Complete a minimum of 50 practice hours of 45 minutes or longer, with at least 20 different individuals. This will ensure that you as a potential EFT practitioner have actual working experience – and not just classroom knowledge of EFT.
- Pass the online multiple-choice exam via AAMET site for approx. $40 (you get 3 attempts) Sign in as a “friend” to complete the exam.
- Complete 6 hours of either 1 on 1 or group supervision with an approved supervisor of which I am. You can also opt to do a combination for example 2 x 1 hour private supervision sessions and 4 hours in a group.
- 6 hours of either group supervision private supervision per year.
I currently offer the group sessions in 2 slots of 3 hours in Sydney or Private supervision, one on one. This can be done via Skype or in person.
- 30 hour’s CPD hours per year.
Please note: Supervision fees are in addition to course fee’s
What is CPD?
Continuous Professional Development This is not designed to be extra work or expense, and if you are undergoing CPD for another professional organisation, it may count towards your AAMET International CPD. You can ask me about this. For these purposes AAMET International defines CPD as “…the normal effort made by conscientious Practitioners to develop personally and professionally in order to work safely, effectively and legally within the scope of their own practice and competence.”
What counts towards CPD?
A wide range of activities are recognized which you can count towards your CPD. When deciding what to include in your CPD you need to consider how the activity will enhance your work as a practitioner and also how you can demonstrate that. CPD must include practical (hands-on) application of your discipline(s), where relevant.
How long will this process take?
This process usually takes anywhere between 8 weeks post attending level 2 and 8 – 11 months. Each individual will often have other commitments and I strongly advice students to take there time to build confidence and practice with friends and family. It is important to stress that this process will need to be completed within 12 months of attending level 2.
What if I don’t complete this process within the 12 month period?
You will be asked to attend a refresher course. This is at a reduced rate.
What happens after I have met the above requirements?
I will notify AAMET that you have completed the required steps and they will then invite you to apply to AAMET directly with your new credentials for membership as a certified EFT Practitioner Level 2 practitioner. Upon verification of your completion of the requirements, AAMET grants you full EFT Practitioner Certification and you will be listed in the AAMET referral system. AAMET will then send you out certificate stating you are an Accredited EFT practitioner as you trained me, a Master Accredited Trainer. You will be an Accredited Certified EFT Practitioner as long as you agree to honour AAMET’s continuing education requirements. For Practitioners who completed training before the launch of the new Training and Accreditation program there is the option to apply for accreditation if they so choose. This is not compulsory.
When can I start charging my clients?
First you will need to apply for Professional indemnity insurance and register with a Complementary therapy organization as a certified EFT practitioner. I can recommend IICT and OAMPS for the insurance.
How will I receive ongoing support post certification as a Practitioner?
I am available as your trainer to answer any questions you may have regarding the certification process and I’m happy to answer minor inquires via email that relate to practicalities of becoming a practitioner. If you require deeper personal mentoring where we can address issues arising regarding building a business. I offer this at a reduced hourly rate or I have packages available too.
Other ways to receive support once certified:
Supervision sessions. Fee $180 for 3 hours in a group. Attend my 6 weekly Sydney Tapping support group (these hours go towards CPD) Fee $40 FB EFT Practitioner group. EFT forum on LinkedIn. AAMET FB EFT practitioner support group. Sign up for the AAMET newsletter. AAMET annual conference.
How do I know what to charge for my services?
This is dependent on your experience, confidence and integrity. I began offering free sessions then built up from there. When the student feels competent they will appreciate their worth and value and charge accordingly. My role is to support students through this process to enhance confidence. Therefore progressing in their skill set as practitioners. This may raise some tap-able issues that can be worked on by the student or in Private mentoring sessions.
Do you offer payment plans or concessions for the Certification program?
Yes, please contact me directly to discuss how I can assist with this.
