Steps to Receive Your EFT Certification

You may complete these steps in any order. (For example, you can take the ethics exam at any time in the process.)

The only exception to this: membership and the consultation / video reviews are essentially done simultaneously.

  1. Become an ACEP member  
    ($135 - U.S. residents) See web page for other options.
    Join Now

  2. Use this link to complete your EFT certification application (you will need to login in to your ACEP account.) Pay for your consultant sessions and 3 video reviews ($1,190)
    Once you complete this application, you will receive an email (allow 24-48 hours) with a packet of instructions on how to move forward.
     
  3. Choose your consultant   View the consultant list 
    Contact your consultant, get their approval, then email Alyson at alyson@energypsych.org with the name of your chosen consultant.

  4.  Complete 5 hours of online, one-on-one consultation sessions *
    These sessions are semi-structured and include a specific focus for each session. Each participant will be asked to demonstrate a specific skill. Students are expected to bring specific cases. These sessions may be used to give feedback about videos submitted for review or your storyboard of video 2. Bring a challenge, issue or brag.  

    Should you need additional consultation time beyond the 5 hours, the cost will be $125/hour, payable to ACEP. The need for additional consultation time is determined by your consultant.

  5. Submit three videos for review*

    It's mandatory to send your signed client release to your consultant before they review any of your videos. 

    • 1st Video: Cover the tapping points, a pre-frame, Constricted Breathing, and explain the Personal Peace Procedure. This should show that you can explain the EFT basics to your client.
    • 2nd Video: Show the Tearless Trauma Technique and Tell The Story Technique. 
    • 3rd Video: Putting it all together in a relaxed EFT session with your client. You will include a written critique of your video session. 

  6. Complete EFT Ethics Course and pass the exam. When you have completed the course and passed the exam, please send a copy of the certificate or something showing that you passed the exam.
              Purchase Ethics Course here ($125)
     
  7. Pass written EFT exam (coming soon).

  8.  Complete 50 hours of client sessions. These must be documented and a sheet turned in before the end of the program. Client sessions can be documented at any time after you start EFT Professional Skills 1. 

  9.  Complete 3 hours of personal EFT work with an ACEP certified Advanced EFT practitioner. The point of this is for you to have a direct experience of EFT from the inside. This makes you a better practitioner. ACEP has arranged for a list of advanced practitioners who have agreed to charge $120 per session for your three sessions. ($360)

    When you reach this point, contact Alyson at alyson@energypsych.org or 484-380-2448 for the list of practitioners.

    Important Note: Your practitioner can not be the person who is running your consultant session and doing your video reviews. Your practitioner will only be required to attest that you have completed three sessions. They will not discuss anything that occurs during your session with them as a client.
