Getting Certified in EFT
Completing EFT Levels 1 and 2 is the first step towards meeting the requirements for AAMET Certification in EFT. The AAMET (Association for the Advancement of Meridian Energy Techniques) is the premier international certification for EFT, and AAMET trainings have respect and credibility worldwide. Keep scrolling down to see our Level 1-2 curriculum, which is in full compliance with the AAMET standards for Level 1-2 Trainings.
AAMET Curriculum for the Levels 1 and 2 EFT Trainings
Please note: Although the topics are divided in the lists below into Level 1 and Level 2 skills, there are places where the material overlaps in the combined training. Our intensive 3 days work very well to weave all these skills together and help you integrate it all. Then you’ll need to practice, practice, practice. 🙂
Level 1: Foundational Skills I
In EFT level 1, students master key concepts and get hands-on experience to prepare them to use basic EFT skills for themselves, family and friends. Covered in Level 1:
- What EFT tapping is and the history behind it
- An overview of the science behind EFT
- Building Bridges from existing beliefs to EFT
- How to do EFT: the current EFT Basic Recipe; the original version of EFT and why it is good to know both

Level 2: Foundational Skills II
Level 2 offers further development of EFT skills for serious students. Students learn and practice core competencies that lead them to become confident with EFT. At the end of Levels 1 & 2, students receive a Certificate of Completion and they are considered competent to offer EFT to others at a basic level. There is, of course, much more to do to complete requirements for full AAMET Certification: practice sessions, case studies, mentoring and more, a process which typically takes 6 months – 1 year. The certification process is available to Level 2 graduates and many continue into certification, but of course there is no requirement to continue.

The Certification Process
As stated earlier, the AAMET EFT Certification process involves a great deal more than the 3-day class. The Level 1-2 Training is an essential first step. For those who are interested in continuing towards getting certified in EFT, you team up with a mentor to work towards certification.
Betty has developed a comprehensive 6-month program offering full support for enhanced training and AAMET certification. To see what she offers, take a look at the Emotional Freedom Mastery Program.
