Attend a Level One and Two Course
When people hear about the power and effectiveness of Estill Voice Training, they want to become Certified as soon as possible. This enthusiasm is understandable, but taking a course is Step One! The more courses you attend, the more you will learn. Estill Voice Training is much, much more than a collection of terms to be memorized! It is the theoretical understanding of the Estill Voice Model (which includes the "book learning" of the anatomy, physiology, and acoustics of voice production), AND the motor learning of the Figures and Qualities. You are certified only after you make isolated control of voice production components a repeatable and reliable physical reality within your own body.
Practice the Figures for Voice Control and Six Qualities
Have we already suggested taking the Courses more than once? Practice the Figures and Qualities for a few minutes everyday. Use the Figures in a Flash and Estill Voiceprint Plus to enhance your practice routine.
Find a Certified Course Instructor for CFP Testing
You can study Estill Voice TrainingTM and coach with either a Certified Master Teacher or a Certified Course Instructor. When you are ready to take the Voiceprint Protocol examination for the Certificate of Figure Proficiency, you must find a CCI to administer this examination. You must pass off on all the tasks in the Voiceprint Protocol within 3 attempts at each task. The exam takes less than an hour for the well-prepared applicant. Each CCI sets his or her own fee for CFP Testing (minimums are set by EVI and listed in the Certification-at-a-Glance) and will be prepared to discuss terms when you make contact.
"Sign Up" in the Estill Certification Center to "Register for CFP Testing"
When you are ready to Register for Certificate of Figure Proficiency Testing, click HERE. This link will take you to our Certfication Center where you can "Sign Up". You must "Register for CFP 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 EstillVoice.com once you earn that Certificate of Figure Proficiency!
Earning the CFP qualifies you to move on towards becoming a Certified Master Teacher. Consult the Certification Manual and browse the EVT Representative Extranet to learn all the steps to take.
