Certification Training in Emotional Brain Training

As a Certified EBT Provider, you will help people solve their problems by using simple, emotional tools and then focus on training their brain to raise their emotional set point and experience the seven rewards of a purposeful life.

You will learn the neuroscience and tools to help people move past problems such as overeating, overweight, anxiety, depression and the 80% of health problems that are rooted in brain stress. As their problems fade, you will guide them in turning their attention to raising their emotional set point using our proven programs and state-of-the-art technology platform.

As a Certified EBT Provider, you will be part of a professional community that is leading the way in bringing the new health care paradigm of emotional plasticity to the public. Instead of focusing on problems, your participants will rewire the circuits that cause them. You will inspire, guide and support them in changing their own brain and experiencing lasting improvements in their health and happiness.

Our mission at EBT is to empower people to use simple, neuroscience-based tools to raise their set point and to raise the set point of the planet, one person and one group at a time.



What is the EBT Provider experience?

As a Certified EBT Provider, you will provide training in EBT by telephone, including 30- and 60-minute weekly telegroups and 30-minute daily telegroup intensives for 30 days. In addition, you will provide one-on-one coaching. You can provide EBT services from your home or office and set your own schedule. Our state-of-the-art platform, including your private practice page, mobile app, private telephone system, messaging, forum boards and e-learning programs will support your clinical services. Administration, technical support, and enabling participants to connect privately with other participants to practice the tools will be handled for you.

This support will enable you to focus on what you do best – connecting with participants and teaching them life-changing tools to treat stress-related problems and raise their emotional set point. Most Certified EBT Providers deliver EBT for 10 to 20 hours per week, but you will determine the practice size that is right for you. Receive income every two weeks based on the services you deliver at the rate of up to $100/hour.

What background and qualities are needed?

You must have a Master’s degree or above in a health-related field, and a clinically-based certification, registration or licensure.* You must reside in the United States. You must be enthusiastic, comfortable with your emotions and ready to learn an entirely new method for empowering people to improve their health and happiness.

You must be interested in enhancing health outcomes, so people feel better faster and see remarkable and sustained improvements in overweight, anxiety, depression and other stress-related problems. You must want to learn the EBT science and use the method to raise your own set point and to be authentic in sharing your experiences as a modality for teaching the EBT tools. You must share our vision of each doing our small but important part to raise the set point of the planet, one person and one group at a time.

Frequently Asked Questions

EBT Certified Master Trainer (EBT Level 5 Certification)
The professional training is designed to be flexible; however, once you begin certification training, you receive full credit for all levels completed as long as you complete all training within three years and maintain continuous membership in the EBT Community.

What if I need to take more time to complete my personal or professional training?
We encourage you to take all the time you need to complete your training within the three-year limit and to continue to personal training after full certification. Minimum standards of completion of the personal work are required for advancement to the next level of certification training.

I have colleagues who are interested in certification. Is there an option to create a training group for us?
We make every effort to support providers-in-training in enjoying their professional relationships, and if you have requests about including one or more of your colleagues in your professional training experience, please contact us.

Can I use EBT in my onsite private practice?
All EBT group and coaching services are provided through your private practice page on the EBT Technology Platform. No Emotional Brain Training is conducted in on-site practices. In order to raise the set point as easily and quickly as possible, comprehensive access to the programs, peer support, mobile apps and support team are essential. However, educating clients in the paradigm of EBT can be integrated into onsite practices, often as a way to share the science of the method for participants who are exploring their interest in joining the provider’s EBT groups and coaching, with the support of the EBT Technology Platform.

Is there continuing education credit for certification and advancement?
In the past, certification training has been approved by various credentialing organizations, including the American Psychological Association, the American Dietetic Association, the California Board of Behavioral Medicine and the National Board of Certified Counselors. All Certified EBT Providers practice outside their discipline and licensure, certification or registration, as the practice of EBT is a distinct activity. To reinforce that all providers are practicing outside of their other designations we do not provide continuing education credit for our training.

What if I discontinue my certification?
If you discontinue your certification for any reason, a one-year period of no involvement is acceptable. During that time, you may still represent yourself as a Certified EBT Coach, Provider, Trainer or Master Trainer. If you do not continue your certification after that time, your certification becomes inactive, and you can no longer represent yourself as a certified at an EBT Provider. For additional information on the certification agreement for certification as an educator, coach or provider, please contact Walt Rose, CEO, EBT, Inc. at walt@ebt.org.

How do I promote my EBT practice in my community?
EBT provides presentations, seminars, and talks for you to use in your community. If you develop a new presentation, we ask that you have it reviewed before presenting it and we support you by drawing upon a bank of presentations that other providers have developed and have been reviewed by EBT for consistency of message and scientific basis. We encourage you to share EBT with the public, with corporations, and with other clinicians to expand your practice, advance your certification and meet our mission of raising the set point of the planet, one person and one group at a time.
