The following programs are accredited to provide 36 hours of education to fulfill the didactic requirement toward BCIA Certification. Some courses are live face-to-face presentations, others are completely distance education or home study, and there are a few programs that offer a combination of both delivery methods. The distance education courses are marked with an asterisk. Also please remember that some training programs offer more than 1 course so check carefully to be sure you purchase the BCIA didactic training based on the blueprint.
Many of the training programs listed below are accredited by a national professional organization such as the APA. Please visit with each provider to see what accreditations each program carries if this is important to you when making your course selection.
You are required to submit a program evaluation within 30 days of the completion of the course in order to get didactic credit toward certification. All information will be summarized and shared with the specific training provider with no link to a specific person.
