Frequently Asked Questions


We recommend Fundamentals of EFT precede any other course.

There are no prerequisites needed to attend Fundamentals, EFCT Externship, EFIT Essentials, or EFFT (Essentials or Level 1). EFIT Essentials and EFFT Essentials are, quite simply, our two-day Level 1 plus two-day Level 2 combined together into a four-day course.

For EFFT (Level 2), EFFT (Level 1) must be completed first.

For EFIT (Level 2), EFIT (Level 1) must be completed first. Please note that while EFIT training offered on other sites provides a great introduction, those trainings do not replace an EFIT (Levels or Essentials).
