The Introduction to FETI® course is the first step on the path to Basic Certification. At the core of the Introduction to FETI course is an interactive online experience taught by Certified FETI Advanced (CFP-A) instructors with significant industry and FETI interviewing experience. The online course also includes a library of information and resources. The introductory course provides instruction on the official FETI Framework™, detailing how to correctly conduct a Forensic Experiential Trauma Interview.
Attendees of the Introduction to FETI are encouraged to enroll in the second step on the path to certification, the Practical Application of the Forensic Experiential Trauma Interview, where interviews are conducted, practiced, and evaluated by our instructors in a small and highly effective learning environment.
Attendees must complete all required coursework and fully participate in all required exercises to receive a certificate of completion. Attendees with a certificate of completion achieve the prerequisite requirement to attend the Practical Application of FETI course. Completion of this course does not provide an attendee with a license to instruct the FETI Methodology or identify themselves as a Certified FETI Practitioner. Attendees intending to be identified as a practitioner of Certified FETI are required to fulfill all requirements of, at a minimum, Basic Certification. Attendees intending to instruct Certified FETI are required to fulfill requirements of Advanced Certification and then apply for a specialty designation of Instructor.
