Some of the courses in this program may be substituted by alternative accredited courses provided by other Enneagram Accredited Schools or Accredited Programs. In this case though Enneagram Egypt cannot provide IEA points for these substitute courses, and the points must be obtained through the original course provider.
Acceptable substitute courses for the time being include, but are not limited to:
Typing courses provided by Ginger Lapid-Bogda and Deborah Ooten may be used as substitutes for this course, on condition these courses provide at least 20 hours of study or more.
For the time being this course is only provided by Tom Condon through his accredited program: the Dynamic Enneagram.
Tom is hosted by Enneagram Egypt, usually annually, to conduct this course.
Even when Enneagram Egypt starts to provide this course locally, the Dynamic Enneagram course will still remain as an acceptable substitute.
The two "Coaching with the Enneagram" courses provided by Ginger Lapid-Bogda may be used as a substitute for this course.
Only TOT courses provided by Enneagram Accredited schools can be used as substitutes for this course. Please refer back to Dr. Khaled ElSherbini for approval by providing the curriculum and details of the program you intend on taking to be sure it will be acceptable as a substitute.
Currently Enneagram Egypt will be hosting Flemming Christensen from Denmark to provide this course, over two sessions.
The TOT course may also be waived for those who show proof of being professional trainers for at least 3 years. This is reviewed on a case-by-case basis, and is granted upon personal discretion of Dr. Khaled ElSherbini.
Enneagram Egypt provides mentorship for the certified Enneagram Teachers and Trainers from Enneagram Egypt wishing to go on and achieve the internationally recognized accreditation from the International Enneagram Association.
The IEA requires at least 3 years of Enneagram study and work before an applicant may submit their application to the IEA. At least two to two and a half years will have already been spent in receiving the ETT certification. over this period the applicant will have received the IEA required study points and much more.
For the remaining 6 to 12 months, the applicant is mentored by Enneagram Egypt to use the Enneagram in their practice, be it teaching, coaching, research, publishing, or application in the applicants field of interest. This will allow the applicant to achieve the IEA required practice points for the application under the mentorship of an IEA accredited professional.
Once the applicant completes all the IEA defined requirements and is deemed ready and up to the standard expected in order to be accredited, Enneagram Egypt provides the applicant with the two needed recommendation letters, and assists the applicant in the application process.
The granting of the accredited professional degree though is at the complete discretion of the International Enneagram Association, and is not guaranteed in any way by Enneagram Egypt.
