Research on EFT


Our courses are approved for CEs by NASW and NCBTMB and our goal is to expand to other organizations.

If you are simply interested in learning EFT, you may attend EFT classes without moving onwards in certification.

EFT Candidate (EFT Cand)

For non-licensed individuals. The first level towards certification lays the foundation for becoming a candidate for practitioner certification. Requirements are completion of in-person Level 1 and Level 2 trainings (there will be webinar options for Level 1), reading the EFT Comprehensive Training Resource Level 1 and Level 2, as well as the Ethics Handbook for Energy Practitioners.  You will also need to take and pass a written multiple choice Level 1 & 2 online test, in addition to a short, online ethics test.

After you have completed the above, you may begin working with others while disclosing that you are in the process of becoming certified. You should also begin your personal EFT work, such as paid sessions with advanced practitioners, The Personal Peace Procedure, and swapping sessions with other candidates.

As a Candidate, you may NOT charge for your sessions.
