Information for all new EMDR trainer applicants

Before you begin the application processes, you will have been trained to facilitate on an EMDR Europe-accredited training course and have successfully achieved this on at least five separate training courses (all parts). You will also have been mentored as a trainee trainer by a Senior EMDR Trainer who agrees that you are now ready to make this application.

It is advisable to submit your training course for accreditation at the same time as your trainer application. However, you may submit this once your trainer accreditation has been approved.

A non-returnable fee of 750 Euros is payable.

Accreditation as a trainer is the highest standard that EMDR Europe can award. The Standards Committee will strive to be rigorous and fair to all applicants and treat them equally.

It is your responsibility as an applicant to make sure that the Standards Committee receives all the required documentation and videos. Please email copies of all documents in order to speed up the process and to avoid an excessive amount of paperwork. Your accreditation process does not start until everything has been received and your fee has been paid.

Once all your material has arrived and has been checked, an independent case handler will be appointed and you will be informed who this is. All your information will then be forwarded to your case handler and he/she will review your written material and assess your videos. This may require seeking further information or clarification from you. When that process is complete, your case handler will make a full report and recommendation to the Standards Committee.

Your case handler can make one of three recommendations to the committee:

1. To accept your accreditation; or 2. To ask you to re-apply; or 3. To reject your application.

Your application will then be discussed by the whole Standards Committee (minus any committee member from your own country, or anyone who might be considered to have a conflict of interests with you, either positive or negative). The Committee will then come to a final decision which will be one of the three above. If the Committee decides (2) or (3), you will be informed of the reasons and told how to proceed. We all of course hope that it will be (1), but even if you do not achieve this first time, please see this as a learning opportunity. The Committee’s aim is to enable the development of good trainers.
