EMDR Training – Everything you need to know about Consultations, CEUs, and Certificates of Completion

 

Consultation FAQs

 

How many consultation hours do I need?

You need a total of 10 hours.  These are typically split up between 5 hours after part 1, and 5 more hours after part 2.

 

Do I have to do 5 hours after part 1 and 5 hours after part 2?

No.  You can split them up however you like.

 

How long do I have to complete my 10 hours?

You have one year from the completion of weekend 2 to complete all 10 hours.

 

What if I don’t complete them by the deadline?

If you don’t complete them within that 1-year timeframe, you are not eligible to call yourself EMDR trained and you will have to retake the entire training.  This is an EMDRIA requirement and is non-negotiable.

 

How do I track my hours?

At the conclusion of part 1, Stacy will provide you with a link that is unique to your training that you will use for tracking your hours.

 

What if I can’t find the link for tracking hours that Stacy provided?

Please do a search of your email to see if you can find it.  It is always emailed within one week of the last day of the part 1 training.

 

What if I lose track of my hours / forget to track one?

You can use the same link to track a past date.  Just click the link and choose the past date that you attended.  If you forgot to log a date and then also don’t remember if you attended, you will have to just attend another consultation group.

 

What if I can’t make the consultations that my cohort scheduled during the training?

No problem.  During the part 1 training you will be given a link to a spreadsheet with additional consultation hours.  You are welcome to join any of the dates/times that work for you.

 

If I need to join a different consultation group that is on the spreadsheet, do I need to let you know?

No, you do not.  Just show up and track your attendance!

 

Help! I lost the link to the spreadsheet for the dates/times/links!

Please do a search of your email to see if you can find it.  It is always emailed within one week of the last day of the part 1 training.

 

What do I do after I complete my hours?

Nothing!  When your cohort’s final consultation is complete, you will receive your certificate via email.  This is sent out within two weeks of that final consultation group, and will come from my office manager, so keep an eye out for an email from sora@towsoncounselingcenter.com.

 

What if it’s been two weeks since my group’s consultation hours have been complete, and I still haven’t received my certificate?

Please check your spam/trash folder for the email from sora@towsoncounselingcenter.com.

 

What if my 10 hours were not complete when my cohort finished? How will you know when I’m complete with my hours?

We review hours once a month and will email your certificate at the next review of hour completion.  *You do not need to let us know when you are complete.

 

What if my 10 hours are complete but I’d like to continue attending the consultation groups?

While we love that you’re getting a lot out of the groups, we do ask that you stop attending after your 10 hours are complete.  Without this limitation, the groups just get way too big.

 

I’d like to continue getting consultation!

Great!  Please see our website at emdr-trainer.com for on-going consultation groups for clinicians who have completed the basic training. 

 

 

CEU FAQs

 

How many CEUs will I get from this training?

You will receive 20 CEUs after part 1 and 20 CEUs after part 2.

 

When do I get them?

You will receive your CEU certificate for part 1 after the 3 days of training plus 5 hours of consultation.  You will receive your CEU certificate for part 2 after the second 3 days of training plus 5 hours of consultation.  Please note you do not receive them immediately after each 3-day training; you receive them after the 5 hours associated with each half have been complete.

 

Do I have to let you know when my consultation hours are complete so you can email me my CEU certificate?

No.  We will send me by tracking your attendance.

 

Certificate of Completion FAQs:

 

When will I get my final certificate of completion?

You will get your certificate of completion when you’ve attended all parts of the trainings – a total of 6 days of training plus 10 hours of consultation.

 

Do I have to let you know when my final consultation hours are complete so you can email me my certificate of completion?

No.  We will send them out when your cohort has completed all their scheduled consultations.  Keep an eye out for an email from sora@towsoncounselingcenter.com.

 

What if I’m not done with my hours when my cohort is complete?  Do I need to let you know when I’m done with my hours so you’ll know to send me my certificate of completion?

We review hours once a month and will email your certificate at the next review of hour completion.  *You do not need to let us know when you are complete.
