What are the dates, schedule and time commitment?
This is a 5 month certification program that runs from February 10th, 2022 to July 8th, 2022.
There are 8 Pre-recorded modules released bi-monthly on our learning platform.
The LIVE classes throughout the program include:
- 4 LIVE Pod Coaching Calls (1 call per month in February, March, April, & June)
- The Pod Calls are 90 minute Zoom calls where you will have the opportunity to practice tapping with the guidance of an expert instructor. *Please note the Pod Coaching Calls are the only LIVE classes where attendance is required for certification.
- 5 LIVE Q&A Calls (1 call each month of the program)
- 4 LIVE Tapping Technique workshops that each focus on specific skills (1 call in February, March, April, and May)

All LIVE classes and events will be recorded and available to view on our learning platform.
This is an experiential program that gives each student the opportunity to practice the tapping techniques and gain confidence as a practitioner. Each student is asked to complete 50 practice tapping sessions (each session is 30-90 mins in length) over the course of the program. You will complete 30 practice sessions as a Tapping Coach and 20 practice sessions as a client. You can practice with your fellow students, friends, family, colleagues and acquaintances. We ask that you do not use your practice hours professionally or with paying clients until you’ve completed the program and have received certification.
How will I interact with the instructors? Will I receive guidance?
During all the LIVE sessions, the instructors will be available to speak with you and answer individual questions. In addition to the Pod Coaching Calls and Q&A calls there are Tapping Technique Workshops monthly where you will receive focused guidance on specific techniques.
You will also have access to a private online community forum on Facebook. Once you register for the certification program you will be sent an invite to the Facebook group.

Tech stuff…How do I submit my monthly Tapping Tracker and Assessments? How do I navigate your learning platform?
We want to make this easy for you so you can focus on learning, not struggling with tech issues. Our fantastic learning platform, Kartra, makes this incredibly simple! We also have short instructional videos available and our help desk is ready to answer any of your questions.
What is an experiential program?
While we use theory to support learning and understanding, we strongly believe that practicing tapping through the experience of both a coach and client helps transform you from a student into a competent and confident Tapping coach.
I’m excited to be in an experiential program but I’m a little nervous about working with my peers; will there be guidelines on how to work safely as a tapping coach-in-training?
Yes! We’re very mindful that everyone is just learning a new technique and each of you have different backgrounds and experience levels. We want you to feel safe and comfortable while practicing your new skills. We have specific boundaries around what to tap on with your peers and how to hold space for others. We also have an amazing network of certified coaches that can work with you outside the program to explore deeper issues that may arise during your tapping experience.
You mentioned Tapping Teachers, can you tell me more?
The program is honored to have 4 AMAZING tapping teachers this Spring!!! They’re experts in the field of EFT and together they have a cumulative experience of over 20 years of tapping wisdom to share with you!!! Each has a successful coaching business and they bring their unique gifts, backgrounds and tapping styles to the program.
What if I fall behind and I can’t quite complete the program requirements by the end date?
We understand that life can be busy and messy and sometimes get in the way of our best intentions and we’re here to help you achieve your goals.
Knowing this, we take the month of May to catch-up. With extra support calls and additional time it’s easier to get back on track.
Additionally, in the event you have extenuating circumstances, and you cannot finish the program requirements by the end date please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss your options for completion.
Or you can apply for an extension the final month of the program.
