Neurofeedback Certification: Certification process
So, you have finished your BCIA (Biofeedback Certification International Alliance) bootcamp and completed the exhaustive 36-hour didactic course. You now understand the science and the basics of Neurofeedback training. The time has now come to start with the practical fun-part!
To receive Board Certification in Neurofeedback, you are required to complete 25 contact hours (at least 2 hours must involve direct observation) with a mentor. You do not have to complete all the hours with the same mentor. Certification is available to individuals with a bachelor’s degree in a health care field, while the Technician level certification (BCN-T) is available for individuals without a bachelor’s level degree in a health care field. This process includes:
- 10 sessions of personal Neurofeedback
- 100 patient/client sessions; and
- 10 case studies.
We offer mentoring options for those seeking BCIA-certification at the clinician or technician level. BCIA requires that mentors are BCIA-certified, with the mentors having at least 2 years of neurofeedback experience.
I have practiced over a decade in this domain and have specialized in a variety of NFT modalities including:
- Amplitude training,
- Z Scores,
- and QEEG.
You will be exposed to the required modalities before signing-off on your final Essential skills list for NFT, which forms part of the BCIA-accreditation process.
We recommend that you review the BCIA Certification Requirements and Mentoring Guidelines before starting this process. You can find detailed information about BCIA Certification.
