Tuition Fees


Tuition: for the 6-day basic training is $ 2,000.  An $1,000 deposit is required at the time of registration.  The balance is due no later than 30 days prior to the first day of training.  Applications submitted within 30 days of the beginning of training should be paid in full at the time of registration.  We recommend that applications be submitted early as past trainings often fill weeks before the training begins.  We keep a waiting list in case there are late withdrawals.  Tuition includes 4 hours of the EMDRIA-required 10 hours of case consultation necessary for completion of an approved basic training.

Early Registration:  An early registration discount of $100 is available for full-fee registrations received before the early registration date.

Agency Practitioner Discount:  For local D.C. trainings, we offer a limited number of discounted tuitions of $1700 on a selective basis  to full-time (non-contract) employees, carrying a full psychotherapy caseload, who work for non-profit and government mental health agencies.  We are not able to offer this discount for trainings conducted outside of the DC area due to travel  time and costs.  A $350 deposit must be paid at time of registration.  The full training fee must be paid no later than 30 days prior to the start of training. The Agency Discount Form (from the website)  must be completed and submitted with the other registration materials.  No other discounts will apply.  We offer a limited number of discounted agency practitioner tuitions for each training so we advise applicants to register early.  We will post on the Schedules section of the website when the quota of discounts is exhausted.

Payment:  You may pay tuition by check or we can bill you via PayPal.  The PayPal bill can be paid by any credit card or via your PayPal account.  There is a one time $50 non-refundable administrative fee for PayPal payments to cover administrative processing costs.  This will be charged on the initial deposit and not for the final payment.

Refund Policy:  Tuition is refundable up to 30 days in advance less a $150 administrative fee.  Note:  There will be no refunds for withdrawals made within 30 days of the first training date and/or after the beginning of the training.  Due to the small size of the training, we are not able to make accommodations for changes in personal or family situations including medical events.  If you must withdraw, we will try and find a replacement.  The sooner we are notified of a withdrawal prior to the training, the more likely we will be able to fill the vacancy.  If we are able to do so, we will refund the tuition less a $350 administrative fee.  We do not fill vacancies which take place after the beginning of the training.  Participants who miss all or part of a training day during the training may request to make-up the day at a future training.  A $250 fee per day, or part thereof, will apply and all requests will be reviewed on a case by case basis.  We make no assurances regarding make-ups. 

Optional Case Consultation Group: An optional package of 6 telephone group consultation hours is available for our trainees at no additional expense.  These consultation groups are held on a monthly basis following completion of the basic training.  The dates of the group consultations are listed in the Schedules section of the website.  Participation in these consultation group calls is not a requirement for CEUs.  The trainee may elect to complete any part of the EMDRIA-required consultation hours with any EMDRIA-approved consultant.  Documentation of these hours will be necessary before a certificate of completion of the basic training can be issued.
