Exciting changes in ACEP’s CEP Workshop

Starting in January of 2011, ACEP is offering a new format for the Essential Skills in Comprehensive Energy Psychology class that is one of the requirements of the CEP Certification Program.  In the new format, this class will come in two weekend classes of two days each, separated by several months.  The one-day Client Care and Facilitation Skills workshop will be available as a webinar class.

In this new format, a student does not need to complete the online modules before the first weekend class.  We made this change in response to student suggestions to remove this barrier to attendance.  A student may take both weekends just for the knowledge gained without ever doing any online study modules.  If a student wants to go further and work for certification, then the student must apply for certification, pass the online modules, and complete their consultation hours.  While the bulk of consultation will come after the second weekend class, up to four consultation hours between the classes may count toward certification.

The first offering of this new format will be in Spanish in San Jose, Costa Rica on Feb. 26-27.

Note: There are two remaining opportunities to complete the certification workshop in the three-day format.  These include the March training in Bellevue (Seattle area) and the June training in Reston, Virginia.  Being familiar with the modules that are part of the certification program is encouraged by the instructors but is no longer required to attend either of these training opportunities.
