Can’t find what you’re looking for?
Are your courses accredited?
Kase & CO is an EMRIA, APA and NBCC approved continuing education provider.
Are Kase &CO courses online-only? Do you offer in-person courses?
The majority of our courses are online-only at this time. We offer in-person courses upon special request for groups of therapists.
Are Kase & CO courses live or recorded?
EMDR Basic Training is a synchronous course and must be attended live in real-time. All of our Advanced Trainings and Speaker Series are offered live along with an on-demand (recorded) option.
Why should I train with Kase & CO?
At Kase & CO, we strive to create an engaging and fun training experience. We create shame-free and empowering spaces for learning. Our team teaches in a trauma-informed manner and focuses heavily on your felt experience through the learning process. We believe in not only teaching you outstanding EMDR, but also in supporting you with a dynamic and inspiring learning experience. We bring play and levity to our trainings, and make even the heaviest of material approachable.
I learned some EMDR, but it’s been a long time since I’ve used it in my practice. What course is best for me?
Basic Training is the first stop in becoming qualified to practice EMDR. If it’s been some time since you completed Basic Training, take our Refresher Course to polish up your skills and get back in the game! We also recommend getting connected for consultation.
When it comes to Certification, many clinicians start the process feeling rusty and out of practice. Certification will get you back in the swing of things and practicing at an expert level.
I’m not in the United States. Can I still sign up for your courses?
You can sign up for courses with Kase & CO even if you’re not based in the United States. However, be sure to check if your country or geographic area has an EMDR governing body. There is EMDR Australia, EMDR UK, EMDR Europe and EMDR Asia. Check those sights as appropriate for information about training in your area.
Who’s eligible for Basic Training?
Mental health professionals who are license-eligible may attend EMDR Basic Training. Interns and graduate students may attend, but they must be in the clinical portion of their graduate program training. (You must be enrolled in a qualifying program, but you do not need to be licensed to attend training.) For further reference, please review EMDRIA’s Eligibility Requirements.
Are you an EMDRIA Approved trainer?
We are an EMDRIA Approved Training program.
How long does Basic Training take?
Basic Training takes about six months to complete from start to finish.
Will Basic Training teach me how to practice in person, online, or both?
Yes! You will learn how to practice EMDR for either practice setting.
Will I become certified after Basic Training?
After Basic Training, you will be an EMDR clinician. However, certification is a level of advanced training that you can pursue after you complete Basic Training. You can think of Basic Training like a bachelor’s degree in EMDR, and Certification like a master’s degree. You have to get your bachelor’s degree first before you can pursue your master’s degree.
After completing EMDR Basic Training with Kase & CO, you can continue with your training to get EMDR Certified. Learn more about the requirements of Certification. Learn about our EMDR Certification program.
What’s the difference between Basic Training and Certification in EMDR?
Certification provides advanced education and experience beyond EMDR Basic Training. You can pursue Certification only after you complete Basic Training.
You do not need to get certified to practice EMDR. However, many clinicians choose to pursue Certification, as the advanced training and credentials identify a practitioner as an expert in EMDR therapy.
Can I practice EMDR after completing Basic Training?
Yes! You can start practicing with clients after your first training intensive.
Do you offer payment plans for Basic Training?
You can choose to pay for Basic Training in one payment, or pay in two, three or four installments. We don’t charge an additional fee for paying in installments. All installment payment plans are set up to auto-debit from your account on your payment plan’s due date. Due dates will be clearly stated when you first register for your training and payment plan.
How do consultation hours in Basic Training work?
Your consultation groups will be selected on the second day of your Part 1 training weekend. You will be given multiple options to choose from, which will vary by day of the week, time and consultant. To give you time for scheduling and planning, your consultation groups will begin at least three weeks after your Part 1 training.
I’ve taken EMDR Basic Training before but feel I would benefit from going through lectures again. Do you offer that?
We do offer an option to attend Basic Training lectures only, for a discounted rate. If you’re interested in auditing our lectures, please email us.
I’ve already taken my EMDR Basic Training Part 1 elsewhere. Can I take Part 2 with you?
Transferring to a different program for Part 2 of Basic Training can be tricky, as we need to ensure the program you attended for Part 1 meets Kase & CO standards. If you’re interested in completing your Part 2 training with us, please email us. We’ll need to know when you completed Part 1, as well as who you completed it with to see if it is a good fit!
Who’s eligible for EMDR Certification?
You’re eligible to pursue EMDR Certification after you’ve completed an EMDRIA Approved EMDR Basic Training. Kase & CO has a certification package. Learn more!
How long does Certification take?
The Kase & CO Certification program is designed to be completed in 12-18 months.
Certification can take one to two years, depending on how quickly or slowly you want to progress through the program.
Is there a time frame for getting certified in EMDR?
Nope! You can do this at your own pace.
What’s the benefit of getting certified in EMDR?
Getting EMDR Certified takes your EMDR and clinical skills to a whole new level. You’ll feel confident and incredibly skilled as an EMDR clinician, and you’ll have a diverse toolkit of EMDR interventions to use with a variety of clinical presentations and needs. Certification can also help attract clients who are seeking out EMDR therapy. Certification is a mentally stimulating and rewarding professional experience that can reduce burnout and compassion fatigue.
Why should I pursue certification with Kase & CO?
We offer an EMDR Certification Package unlike any other training group. We create a rich training experience in which you can work with multiple consultants to get various viewpoints. You can elect to include 12 CEs from any of our training programs at a discounted rate, and we offer a competency tracker so you can self-evaluate your progress. We pride ourselves on offering a highly organized training program, a heart-centered and compassionate community, and a wealth of beneficial resources.
Who’s eligible for Consultant Training?
EMDR Consultants help other therapists learn and master EMDR. Kase & CO EMDR Consultant Training is open to EMDR Certified clinicians who are looking to pursue this specialized and coveted role, and who demonstrate integrity, professionalism, advanced skills and compassion.
How long does Consultant Training take?
EMDRIA requires consultants in training to complete training requirements within two years.
How can I become a consultant with Kase & CO?

Do you offer payment plans? Does it cost more if I pay in installments?
We offer payment plans for EMDR Basic Training. You have the option to pay in two, three or four installments. At the time of registration, you’ll be asked to select your payment plan and be able to view upcoming payment due dates. All payment plans are set to auto-debit on your set due date. There is no additional cost to pay with a payment plan.
Do you ever offer reduced rates or scholarships?
We recognize that systemic racism has created many social barriers for Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC), including a lack of equity in education and certification. In an effort to make a difference among mental health professionals and social service providers, we offer annual scholarships for training and advanced certifications for BIPOC mental health professionals. Learn more about our BIPOC Scholarship Fund or apply.
We do occasionally offer promotional codes in our monthly mailers and on social media. Be sure to subscribe to our mailing list and follow us on social.
I have an automated payment plan and need to change my card. What should I do?
You can update your card details in your account by logging in to your account found on the menu above. Go to My Account > Account Details. At the bottom of that screen select Payment Methods. The next screen will allow you to add a new card to your account. Once you have updated your card, be sure to contact us to let us know.
Can I pay by check?
If you’re signing up for Basic Training, you’ll be able to pay by check. Just select that option at checkout. Please be mindful that your registration payment must be received within two weeks of submitting your registration. If we do not receive payment within that time frame, your seat will be released and you’ll need to re-register.
