An EMDRIA Approved EMDR Basic Training provides clinicians with the knowledge and skills to utilize EMDR therapy, a comprehensive understanding of case conceptualization and treatment planning, and the ability to integrate EMDR therapy into their clinical practice. An EMDRIA Approved EMDR Basic Training provides, at a minimum: instruction in the current explanatory model, methodology, and underlying mechanisms of EMDR through lecture, practice, and integrated consultation.

Upon completion of an EMDRIA Approved EMDR Basic Training, you are considered an EMDR Trained Clinician, however, this does not mean you are an EMDRIA Member or EMDR Certified. Applying for EMDRIA Membership is a separate step, and applying for EMDR Certification is yet another process.
You do not need to provide EMDR International Association with any documentation before taking an EMDR basic training unless specifically asked to do so by EMDR International Association. Any licensure or transcript information that needs to be provided would go directly to the training provider.

Please check with specific trainers you are considering as to how they may handle this.
This depends on the training providers and can be answered by contacting them directly. In general, trainers expect you to register and complete training with one provider.

You may also want to ask how the certificate of completion is provided.
