News & Press: ACEP Accomplishments

EFTi and ACEP support each others training programs.

EFTi  has created a position on online training program guidelines that recognizes the quality of ACEP's EFT training program as the only program good enough to warrant an exception to their usual stance of supporting in person hands-on EFT trainings.


ACEP and EFTi support each other's EFT program.  ACEP regularly refers people to EFTi who want an in person experience or who do not meet ACEP's eligibility requirements.

The following letter was sent to EFTi trainers.


September, 2019


As an EFT International Trainer, you are part of an association that values and takes a stand for in-person hands-on EFT trainings. 

As we are all aware, much of what is touted as EFT on-line training falls far short of the quality that can be offered in person. These on-line trainings consistently fail to meet quality standards. We probably don’t need to mention names here. We are aware that many of you are concerned about how misleading most on-line EFT trainings are.

As a trainer, it is beneficial to your students and to your own business for you to articulate this issue clearly and consistently. This is why Training Board has put forth a statement. We clarify EFT International’s position as well as providing a thoughtfully crafted quality checklist for EFT Trainings.

A notable exception is the ACEP on-line training developed for licensed mental health professionals. We recognize the extensive effort ACEP has made to address all the criteria of a quality EFT training within an on-line format, and we believe that they have succeeded.

Training Board was highly skeptical at first. But thanks to close collaboration between EFT International and ACEP, we have had the opportunity to carefully examine this program. Due to dozens of hours of meetings, grilling the creators on different aspects of the training, and viewing video samples of training sessions, we can say with great confidence that the ACEP on-line training fulfills quality training requirements for Levels 1 and 2.

Thanks to the Zoom technology which can be used for both groups and pairs in break-out rooms, ACEP’s training includes both demos and paired practice. Only small classes are allowed (limit of 6) so that each student is carefully monitored in the discussion and practice components. As for the videoed material, our own Dr. Shoshana Garfield has provided a Palace of Possibilities segment for the ACEP training. Dr. Phil Mollon, former president of ACEP and one of the main teachers and developers of the ACEP training, has recently completed the process to become a Trainer for EFT International. We are happy to welcome Dr. Mollon as an EFT International Master Trainer.

From Dr. Bob Schwarz, Executive Director of ACEP:
"ACEP supports EFTi’s continual attention to high quality training and we work together with organizational collegiality on behalf of EFT. ACEP also supports EFTi’s in person trainings and often refers people to EFTi who either want live training or do not meet the requirements for ACEP’s training."

This level of collaboration and mutual respect can only be beneficial to the EFT world. And so we are asking all EFT International Trainers to join in our show of support for ACEP’s pioneering on-line training accomplishment. 

Please do not let the inarguably low quality of on-line trainings in general prejudice your view of the ACEP EFT Professional Skills offering. ACEP has been remarkably transparent and has been willing to be grilled and questioned by us over many months. We on the Training Board of EFT International can confirm that the ACEP on-line course is exceptional, truly a high-quality EFT training.

Understandably, you may still have suspicions and concerns. To clear up any misunderstandings or confusion and discuss any remaining questions, Training Board is offering a webinar call for all Trainers at two different times to accommodate all time zones.  These will be recorded and will become a resource posted on the website for trainers.
