Certification Requirements

Certified AAIT™ practitioner:

As a certified AAIT™ practitioner, you join a growing community of healing arts professionals who believe in the innate goodness and capacity of our clients. We are committed to helping our clients become more free by keeping our skills sharp and understanding grounded.

We come from all walks of life and share an urge to maintain the integrity of and forward the AAIT™ experience through, practice, research and education. We represent a diverse and skilled collective of practitioners who are committed to providing superb care as demonstrated by continuous learning, refined skills alongside dedication to our own personal well-being.

Your certification entitles you to:

Present yourself as an AAIT™ Guild Member in good standing: 

There is a notable difference in skill and understanding when we practice and engage in continuous learning and when we don’t. Distinguishing yourself as a member in good standing sets you apart from those of us who choose to take a course in AAIT™ ™ but do not practice regularly.

Further, the primary intention of this guild is to preserve the integrity of this work for you and future generations.

Access to our community of certified practitioners through the Guild forum will support you in growing professionally as you become more recognized for your specialty. Our community is a generous one with an easy sharing of referrals, resources and insights.

Professional listing on the practitioner’s page linking to your website:

People regularly call me asking for a referral to an AAIT™ practitioner. I often refer them to the website as it’s getting to the point that I can’t keep up with these calls. As people search for practitioners in your niche, your certification presents you as a professional in good standing, setting you apart from your peers. As our community grows, this extends the leveraged value of your certification. We already have people search the website for practitioners, we only anticipate this will increase.

The promotion of your events on the AAIT™ site and via social media:

The more you share the more we can share. As a member in good standing, it will be easy for people interested in AAIT™ to find your event increasing your reach and impact.

Access to the AAIT™ Skills Lab including video archives, up to date materials, and the certified practitioner:

Access to the AAIT™ Skills Lab will increase your understanding of and refine your skills and practice of AAIT™. Searching videos for a specific method or topic will allow you to engage in self-directed skill refinement. In this way, you will able to easily identify paths for your continuous learning.

Access to updated digital training materials and resources to enhance learning, broaden your view of the potential of our collective work and strengthen your sense of competency.

As training materials continue to improve, your easy access to these improvements will make it easier for you to keep up to date and aligned.

The service marks (registered trademarks, logo and certification seal), which we protect and maintain, will be yours to use with your annual certification

The use of Acceptance and Integration Training®, seals and logos will give you credibility in the community, identifying you as an AAIT™ practitioner in good standing.

Discounts on refresher courses offered by Melanie McGhee, L.C.S.W.:

I can appreciate the importance of refresher courses in our learning and refinement of skills. I urge you to refresh yourself on any aspect of this model as you continue to practice. Generally, these discounts are 50% the cost of the course. Should you wish to repeat one weekend of the training, you will only be charged for that weekend. For instance, should you want a refresher in Deep PEAT, your cost would be a 50% discount for a weekend training.

Should you take a refresher course with another trainer, the decision for any discount lies solely with that trainer.

10% discount on private sessions and all public courses and retreat offerings with Melanie McGhee, L.C.S.W.:

Doing your own work will support you in mastering your craft. This discount is aimed at making it easier to access time for your personal work.

Your first year of certification is included in your tuition for the AAIT™ Fellowship Training Group. Practitioners from the 2017, 2019, and 2020 AAIT™ FTG cohorts are grand-mothered in as founding members at a rate of $108 per year.

Regardless of your level of certification, your annual certification requirements checklist is due in September when your fee renews. If your certification lapses and you choose to renew it, you may be subject to the going rate at the time.

Renewing your certification may also require refresher courses.

Why 108? The number has a resonance for several reasons. My intention is to build a community that lasts long after us. Vedic mathematicians considered 108 to represent the wholeness of existence. The book of James in the Bible whose primary message seemed to be that there is no real faith without charitable works contains 108 verses. 108 is the numeric representation of infinity.

The monies from the certification fee listed above and those below will contribute to research and scholarship funds as well as supporting the structure of our learning community. A portion of these fees will also go to Zivorad Slavinski.
