After a person's interest in EFT is awakened by having a first-hand tapping experience - EFT Level 1 is where EFT education starts. Level 1 is an experiential introduction to foundational EFT skills designed to help students learn basic EFT enough to start effectively assisting themselves, family and friends in a non-professional capacity.
While Level 1 does not confer Practitioner status on its own, it is designed to get students actively learning and practicing the tried-and-true basics of tapping, and it is a prerequisite for further AAMET EFT training.
EFT Level 1 is a 12-hour course. It can be experienced in three differing and flexible training configurations:
- 2 Days (12 classroom hours spread over 2 days, excluding lunch and breaks)
- 1 Day (6 classroom hours minimum, excluding lunch and breaks, with 6 hours additional instruction and facilitation for a total of 12 hours). When using a 1-day classroom configuration, all remaining hours must be actively facilitated. This requirement can be accomplished using a combination of pre-course and/or post-course training.
The format of these additional hours is at the discretion of the Trainer, but must include interactive components like in-person discussions, follow-up Q&As, practice sessions, webinars or teleseminars. For example, Trainer(s) may offer a 6-hour “Introduction to Level 1” conducted via webinar before students attend an in-person 1-day course
- 3 Days (For a 3-day comprehensive L1/L2 course, a minimum of 21 classroom hours, excluding lunch and breaks, is required for both courses, plus 3 hours of pre- or post-course instruction or facilitation (see above) for a total of 24 hours). In this configuration, it is understood that Level 1 content overlaps with Level 2 content at times (i.e. Movie / Tell the Story and the Importance of Being Gentle may be taught as part of the same module, etc.)
After students experience basic EFT skills in Level 1, they can move on to EFT Level 2 where they can complete the full foundational EFT training.
