How Can I Become Recertified?

Certification for Biofeedback and Neurofeedback is valid for 4 years.  During this time one must document completion of 48 hours of accredited, blueprint-relevant continuing education that includes 3 hours of ethics course work.  Most licensed professionals may have already completed part or all of the CE requirement during the  maintenance of their health care credential.  Should CE not be an easy choice for you, it is permitted that you may retake the basic certification exam and complete it with a passing score.

Certification for PMDB is valid for 3 years.  During this time one must document completion of 36 hours of accredited, blueprint-relevant continuing education that includes 3 hours of ethics course work.  Most licensed professionals may have already completed part or all of the CE requirement during the  maintenance of their health care credential.  Should CE not be an easy choice for you, it is permitted that you may retake the basic certification exam and complete it with a passing score.

**New in 2016:

1.   BCIA has revised the Professional Standards and Ethical Principles of Biofeedback  (PSEP).   Each applicant must sign that they have read,  understand, and agree to abide by these principles.  Please take a minute and review this document.

2.   The BCIA Board of Directors is proud to announce the launch of a new international fee structure designed to be more in line with the financial realities in each country and region. We use a 4-tier country grouping based on what is used by the World Psychiatric Association.  Please use the links below for more information.

BCIA has officially reduced the number of required CE hours from 55 to 48 for those who recertify in biofeedback or neurofeedback.  No elective hours are required.

Additionally, for those who are dual certified (certified in more than 1 BCIA modality), the recertification fee for the first filing deadline has been reduced by $50 and then will increase in $25 increments through the other filing periods.

For more affordable and accessible CE options, BCIA provides access to CE articles with an associated exam that earn 1 hour of CE.  Additionally, BCIA provides webinars, either in live presentation or recordings.

BCIA has now officially adopted the use of formal mentoring as a way to fulfill a maximum of 20 hours of the required CE for both biofeedback and neurofeedback recertification.  This work must be done by a  BCIA approved mentor selected using the same parameters as when seeking original certification.  Additionally, the work done must be logged and signed off by both the mentor and the candidate using this form.
