Would you like to upgrade your AFT Practice, and become able to certify others in AFT? The next round of instructor training is opening on July 10.
This class will activate another round of personal growth for you as you become more dynamic and visible in your mission of spreading freedom using AFT. By becoming a successful AFT practitioner you will lay a solid foundation as you choose to continue your journey towards being a Certified AFT Instructor.
Pre-Requisites: You must be a certified AFT Instructor or in the later stages of the AFT Certification Program by July 1, 2018.
Training will consist of three phases:
Mentoring: One of the favorite parts of Instructor Training is being a mentor to new certification students. We will prepare you to become a mentor by placing you in a special mentoring group that is co-led by Dr. Perkus and Certified Instructor, Sherry Coffman, and assisted by Certified Instructor Renee Arledge. Once you choose your preferred time to lead mentoring calls, you will be assigned certification students (usually 3-8 students depending on the ratio of mentors to students). Your job is to see them through from beginner to certified practitioner. You will receive a small stipend for each student who graduates from your class. Many mentoring groups choose to continue to meet up after class has finished just to continue to nurture the bond that has been developed.
Introduction and Immersion Practicum: In this phase you will be given the assignment of teaching 5 Introduction to AFT classes in your community (1-2 can be online), and to have your students submit the feedback form to the academy. You will also submit one of the introductions as a video for Dr. Perkus to review. Students will share ideas for networking, finding students, and teaching effectively. You will also be taught the Immersion Curriculum and given the opportunity to teach AFT Immersions in your community if you desire. The group will meet weekly with Dr. Perkus for masterminding.
Certification Instruction Practicum: In this final phase, we will review the Certification Curriculum, discussing how to teach each of the modules of AFT Certification. During this time, you will schedule and teach your first In-Person AFT Certification class. You will meet weekly with Dr. Perkus and your fellow students for feedback and support.
NOTE: Some students have requested to be able to complete multiple sections of this class concurrently. We will work with you individually to determine the best pace for you. If you have the time and drive to finish early, we will accommodate you. Or, if you need to go step-by-step, that is fine as well.
Once you have successfully completed all phases of this class, you will become a Certified AFT Instructor. This allows you to teach in-person AFT Certification and Immersion Classes (Online are still only taught by Dr. Perkus at this time). You will also have raised your confidence in introducing AFT to the community and will be empowered to help others on an even greater level.
The whole course will take 4-6 months depending on how quickly students move through the program.
