EMCC Training modules explained

The design of the programme is flexible and subject to continuous improvement.

What is the total duration of the programme?

6 months.

How much of my time will it take?

The course has a total qualification time of 75 hours. This includes all homework and practice.


We apply an experiential learning methodology. Modules are spaced carefully to ensure
participants have time to work with practise clients and gather valuable feedback.


On successful completion of all programme components, participants have a ‘Professional

you're learning. Following this, we’ll recommend you directly to EMCC for your professional
designation at Foundation or Practitioner Level of accreditation.
