Estill Master Trainer Candidate – EMT-C
Once the Phase One written exam and Voice Print exam have been passed the
mentee becomes a EMT-C and can move onto Phase Two.
The EMT-C will demonstrate competency in accurate teaching of 26 elements of Estill Voice Training (see p 66 Certification Manual) to groups unfamiliar with the Estill model.
The EMT-C will demonstrate:
An opportunity to demonstrate teaching competency of at least 20% (6 practice groups) of the 26 elements will be offered in four official courses over the two years:
Level I & II - London October half term - 2018 & 2019
Level I & II - Brighton Easter holiday - 2019 & 2020
The remaining competencies can be demonstrated in private sessions organised by the EMT-Cs, individually or as a group.
The EMT-C should gain confidence working
with private groups before leading groups on public courses.
This is to support the EMT-C’s success in passing Teaching Observations.
These sessions can be examined in person or via video. The EMT-C will receive immediate verbal feedback following each live observation and written feedback within one month of the observation be it live or via video.
Email support will continue to be available in Phase Two to provide the necessary
continuity in preparation for observed teaching.
