FAQ

Will I be certified in EMDR after this class?

You will receive a certificate of completion upon completing all parts of this training. Completing this training is the first step towards certification.  You will be able to begin practicing EMDR immediately after the Level I training.  Certification in EMDR is optional and there are additional requirements to becoming Certified.  https://www.emdria.org/emdr-training-education/emdr-certification/

 

Why do I have to pick a date for the practicum now?

The practicum will be done in small groups with a consultant overseeing your practice, so class size is limited.  

 

What virtual platform will you use?

We will be using Zoom for this class

 

What technical requirements do I need to meet?

You must have a stable internet connection.  We recommend connecting directly to your internet through an ethernet cable.  Blue tooth devices may weaken your connection.  

 

Do I have to have my camera on the whole time?

Yes, this is a very interactive training and it is important to be present and connected to the trainer and your peers

What if I can not attend all of the dates?

Participation in all of the dates is required for course completion

Is my registration refundable if I change my mind?

Unfortunately, we can not refund registration after September 1st, 2020.  However, we will allow you to transfer your registration to another licensed mental health professional.

What happens if the trainer has technical difficulties?

We have tested the system several times and feel confident this will not happen.  However, the trainer will have a backup wifi hotspot, a technical support person "zoom assistant" available to troubleshoot issues in the zoom meeting.  If the issue continues we may take a break to resolve the problem, and if resolution is unsuccessful we will reschedule the time.

 

Are there contact hours/CEUs available?

This course has been approved for 44 contact hours for NYS licensed social workers and mental health counselors.  All participants will receive a certificate of completion.  Please check with your state/licensing board for other approval.
