The Certification Track is for you if you want to become:

  1. A Certified Practitioner of Healing From the Core® (HFC) or Distance Healing From the Core® (DHFC)
  2. A Master Certified Practitioner of Healing From the Core® (HFC) or Distance Healing From the Core® (DHFC)

What differentiates Healing From the Core® Practitioners from Distance Healing From the Core® Practitioners?

Both HFC and DHFC Practitioners use the same Healing From the Core® Method. However, HFC Practitioners use it with clients in person while DHFC Practitioners use it with clients at a distance.

What are the training requirements to get certified in Healing From the Core®?

You’ll need to take Healing From the Core® and all 8 Advanced Immersion Trainings. For all of these classes, you’ll need to pass an easy quiz with a score of 70% or better.

In addition to the training, there are other requirements. You’ll see those under the question: “Besides the training classes, what are the other requirements to become Certified?”

What are the training requirements to get certified in Distance Healing From the Core®?

You’ll need to take Distance Healing From the Core® and all 8 Advanced Immersion Trainings. For each of these classes, you’ll need to pass an easy quiz with a score of 70% or better.

In addition to the training, there are other requirements. You’ll see those under the question: “Besides the training classes, what are the other requirements to become Certified?”

Do I need to enroll in your Group Mentoring Program to become Certified?

It’s not required, but we highly recommend it if you want to become masterful at facilitating Distance Healing From the Core®.

Please Note: We do not currently offer a Mentoring Group for Healing From the Core® in-person practitioners.

Are the course quizzes difficult?

Not at all. The questions aren’t designed to stump you. They’re simply there to give us proof that you watched the training.

This is important for both your Certification and if you choose to get CEs from the National Certification Board for Therapeutic Massage and Bodywork (NCBTMB).

Can I get certified in both HFC and DHFC?

You bet. All you have to do is take both of these classes: Healing From the Core® and Distance Healing From the Core®.

You’ll also need to take all 8 of the Advanced Immersion Trainings — and pass an easy quiz for each one with a score of 70% or better.

Good news! Since the same Advanced Immersion Trainings are required for both HFC and DHFC Certification, you’ll only need to take each one once.

What other benefits do I get by being on the Certification Track?

  1. You save $100.00 USD on every Advanced Immersion Training required for Certification.
  2. You get access to Done-For-You Marketing Templates you can use right away to attract new clients and grow your healing practice.

Where’s my promo code to save $100.00 USD on every Advanced Immersion Training required for Certification?

Besides the training classes, what are the other requirements to become Certified?

They’re the same for both HFC and DHFC Certification.

To become a Certified Practitioner you must:

Take either HFC or DHFC (or both if you want dual certification) and pass an easy quiz with a score of 70% or better.

Take all 8 Advanced Immersion Trainings and pass an easy quiz for each one with a score of 70% or better.

How long do I have to get Certified?

You can stay on the Certification Track for up to 2 years to complete all the requirements.

We get it. Sometimes life gets in the way.

That said, you will lose a couple big benefits if you pass the 2-year mark:

  1. You’ll lose the $100.00 USD on every new Advanced Immersion Training you enroll in.
  2. You lose access to Done-For-You Marketing Material you can use right away to attract new clients and grow your healing practice. (Don’t worry. Once you’re Certified, you’ll get access again.)

Do I have to be Certified as a Practitioner of HFC or DHFC first before I can apply to become Master Certified?

Yes.

What other requirements do I need to complete to get Master Certified?

In addition to being a Certified Practitioner, you’ll need to take these additional advanced trainings and pass an easy quiz for each one with a score of 70% or better:

  1. Soul Embodiment®: Expanding Present-Moment Consciousness
  2. From Trauma Recovery to Ecstasy
  3. Advanced Dialoguing Skills

You’ll also need to fulfill these requirements:

Lead a Zoom breakout room one time — in either an HFC or a DHFC training — depending on the Certification you’re pursuing.

Complete an interview or a session with a Healing From the Core® instructor.
