EFTfree.net promotes training and certification through the AAMET (Association for the Advancement of Meridian Energy Techniques). The AAMET is a professional association of field-experienced EFT trainers and practitioners who bring years of 1-to-1 client experience and independent scholarship to their work. AAMET guidelines for Level 1, Level 2 and Level 3 trainings are well-established and based upon the original teaching of EFT developer Gary Craig.
Since 1999, the leadership and member trainers of the AAMET, including EFT Masters and Advanced Practitioners, have been developing and teaching a step-by-step EFT curriculum that remains true to original EFT foundational and advanced skills. Practitioner certification involves not only an exam, but a case-by-case review of each person’s skills based on their experience and level of required training they have received. Certified trainers go through an equally rigorous, experience-dependent process.

Each trainer teaches the agreed-upon AAMET curriculum their own way, but the core EFT skills remain the same. Participants in an EFT training course can expect to be schooled in core EFT skills appropriate to their level, while receiving encouragement towards developing their own unique Art of Delivery.
AAMET Trainers Lynne Shaner, Betty Moore-Hafter and Jade Barbee occasionally list EFT trainings and resources via EFTfree.net. Please note, we share EFT as an artform and self-help technology – we are not licensed medical or mental health providers. Below you will find comments from our 2011 EFT trainings and find listings (upper left) of upcoming US-based workshops as they get scheduled.
Comments on Betty and Lynne’s Level 1 & 2 EFT Training, May 13-15, 2011
Trainee Bonita Experiences Tapping with Lynne
My overall feeling about the training with Betty and Lynne is that the teaching was complete, thorough, and given with gentleness. The group that participated in the training was made up of diverse and gifted EFT practitioners who were very receptive to the loving way that they were taught. I highly recommend these two gifted instructors. – Marilyn Blackston, MD
Incredible stuff!! Thanks to Betty and Lynne for the most amazing experiences in the L1 and L2 class. The education, the results, the journey to understanding, and the friends I have made. Thanks to you for your superb teaching skills and knowledge you have passed to us. Thanks. – Taff
From a surgeon to a Special Forces agent based in Afghanistan to a playwright from Manhattan, an unlikely group of 12 from Houston to Nova Scotia to DC bonded over the artful training of the EFT method, led by Lynne Shaner and Betty Moore-Hafter. Three days of laughter, tears, hard work, and life-long connections formed changed all our lives forever, in the most positive way imaginable. – Beth Belton
Group Tapping with Betty Moore-Hafter, 2011
At the beginning of the weekend I was anxious about my abilities and didn’t really think I could help others. I was terribly anxious and worried about moving to Nova Scotia. After this weekend class I am excited about a fun and easy contemplative drive (of 20+ hours). I feel like the whole world has been reopened for me. I am grateful to Lynne and Betty and EFT for giving me an exciting life to look forward to. I also was anxious to be with so many intelligent and experienced people. It turned out to be powerful and helpful to meet such like-minded new friends. Thank you Lynne and Betty. – Jennifer Brehm
I feel honored to have been a part of Lynne and Betty’s first group of EFT Certification trainees! The healing energy flowing through our small group was palpable. I am leaving with a strong base of knowledge on the art of using EFT, excitement about putting this knowledge to use in my practice, and a desire to continue to learn and study. I will treasure this kind and gentle introduction to this amazing technique. Thank you Lynne and Betty! – Marie Black, MA, LPC
Right now I feel like a tree that has been transplanted into a lush, colorful, and sunny garden. So many insights have come this weekend. Lynne and Betty are dynamic and insightful teachers. Everything about this training was a joy, professional and inclusive. I am ready to use and learn more about this powerful tool for healing self and others. With heartfelt thanks, Chris Karlsen

My every expectation was met – and more. Lynne and Betty are a perfect match, giving their experience and knowledge to us effortlessly. I feel very lucky to have experienced this workshop. – Marsha Sheiness
The workshop this weekend with Lynne and Betty provided a lot of positive energy, clearing, and healing for me. After an intense semester studying for my masters in Nursing in Family Mental Health, this weekend was a perfect gift for me to get in touch with my true self. Thank you so much for your generous wisdom and willingness to share as much knowledge to all of us. – Unsigned
We all travel down a road and find a crossroad which can change your life. EFT… a new possibility… The possibility of new [illegible] and understanding. Thank you Betty and Lynne! – Bobbie
Betty and Lynne created a safe classroom environment where we were able to explore and learn EFT. I was impressed with the ease I felt in considering my existing ideas from a new perspective. The teaching flowed smoothly and the chemistry amongst the instructors and participants was so pleasant. They are excellent instructors. – Katie Vereshchaka
Comments from Jade Barbee’s Level 1 EFT Trainings:
I want to thank you for the excellent workshop you taught this past weekend. I think you are an excellent teacher: your pedagogy was clear, well delineated and thorough. You demonstrated infinite patience as we stumbled through grasping the principles and you were most helpful and graceful in coaching and encouraging us to take a chance on getting slapped – we always got kissed! You are a heart-centered man, strong yet gentle, caring and energetic in your passion and commitment to EFT. You are a good teacher and a great therapist and I am warmly and deeply appreciative of being able to learn EFT from you. I look forward to many more exciting adventures with EFT and you. – Billy King
I can’t tell you the last time I felt this good, and from an experience in an EFT workshop – I’m blown away. I feel like several weights have been lifted from me. I now have such a better idea of what is really going on with me. I was the quintessential skeptic. If it works for me, it can work for anyone. Thanks so much! – Matthew Trieber
I just wanted to let you know that this last level 2 class was really a turning point for me. I used to think of EFT as a great tool, but now I realize that EFT has become the method for me – it’s a part of my thinking now in helping others shift. It’s that part of EFT that allows the practitioner to open the flow of communication while tapping – the back and forth interaction – that really clicks for me. It feels like a gentle but oh so very effective way to get to the source of the issue. I am truly amazed – and love it even more. Thanks Jade! – Isa Oury
I feel that this experience I had with EFT was so healing for me. Whether I go farther or not, I now have the tools to help heal my inner self! - Unsigned
It was an amazing experience. The content was informative and provided enough skills to get started practicing EFT. Jade is an excellent teacher and a gentle soul. He taught with poise and patience. He is a master at delivery and has a creative approach to EFT that was quite engaging. The weekend was an awesome experience. Excited to come up again for Level 2. – Julie Banks
I felt affirmed. It was a heartwarming experience, and the hands on practice was so helpful – I’m much clearer about how to proceed and still basking in the afterglow. Thank you. – Anne Wallace-Senft
