Are you an Accredited Advanced EFT Practitioner who is also an educator? Would you like to offer EFT-related specialty/advanced tapping courses under the EFT International banner in a form that exceeds the maximum 3.5 hours allowed by regular Advanced Practitioner Membership?
EFT International is now accepting applications for the Accredited Specialty Provider membership level. Accredited Specialty Providers are educators and advanced EFT practitioners who offer specialized/advanced tapping courses, but are not interested in training Levels 1, 2 or 3 or certifying EFT practitioners.
Once accepted, Accredited Specialty Providers can teach and promote their approved courses under the EFT International banner alongside Trainers on the EFTi website and via the EFTi Community Newsletter.
Membership and Course Requirements:
Courses must be EFT-related* and taught in accordance with EFT International training standards for Levels 1, 2 and 3. *EFT-related specialty courses are those that have a clear, definable and congruent relationship to foundational EFT skills and include a somatic (tapping) component.
Accredited Specialty Providers must abide by all EFTi rules and regulations, including the Code of Conduct and Ethics, and are required to complete annual CPD and mentoring activities as Accredited Advanced Practitioners. Additionally, they agree to have their course(s) approved by the EFTi Accreditation Panel/Training Board, and to complete further annual mentoring related to their teaching activities (minimum 3 additional hours per year individually or in a group with an EFT International Trainer or Trainer of Trainers).
While Specialty Providers are considered 'specialists' in their EFT-related modalities, they are not classed as Trainer level members and cannot teach the core training levels under the EFTi name, nor can they certify students or mentor practitioner or trainer level candidates for certification purposes.
If you already have extensive educational and presenting experience, you a member of EFT International at the Accredited Advanced Practitioner** level, and you have created and taught an advanced application of tapping, you are welcome to apply to become an Accredited Specialty Provider.
**Applicants who are not already members of EFTi at Accredited Advanced EFT Practitioner level must first gain that level of membership before applying for Specialty Provider status.
