1. ATTEND A COURSE: When people hear about the power and effectiveness of EVT®, they want to become certified as soon as possible. However, it’s important to note that taking a course is just the first step. The more courses you attend, the more you will learn. EVT® encompasses both the theoretical understanding of the Estill Voice Model™, which delves into the anatomy, physiology, and acoustics of voice production, and the motor learning of the Figures and Qualities.
2. PRACTICE: Practice the Figures and Qualities for a few minutes every day. Use the Figures in a Flash and Estill Voiceprint Plus™ to enhance your practice routine.
3. FIND AN EMCI: When you are ready to take the Estill Voiceprint Plus™ protocol examination for the EFP certification, you must find an EMCI to administer this examination. You must pass off on all the tasks in the Estill Voiceprint Plus™ protocol within 3 attempts. The exam takes less than an hour for the well-prepared applicant. Each EMCI sets their own fee for EFP Testing (minimums are suggested by EVI and listed in the Certification-at-a-Glance).
4. SIGN UP AND REGISTER FOR TESTING: When you are ready to Register for EFP Testing, sign up in the Estill Certification Center. You must “Register for EFP Testing” before you meet with your examiner. This process enters you into the Estill Voice International certification registry and gives you access to the EVT® Representative Extranet. This will facilitate getting your name onto our website once you earn your EFP certificate!
