BCIA Options: There are several ways to gain continuing education. BCIA offers 2 different options:
There are 2 types of webinars: The Clinical Update Series provides information on a specific topic of interest and provides 90 minutes of accredited CE. The Mentoring webinars provide 60 minutes of accredited ce for those who are looking for recertification credits. New applicants will earn 1 contact hour and 2 case conference presentations toward their certification requirements.
Membership Organizations: Both AAPB and ISNR offer accredited ce at their annual meetings and both may offer the opportunity of purchasing recordings for any topics you may have missed. AAPB offers webinars.
State/Regional Biofeedback Societies: There are many state/regional biofeedback societies that hold local conferences with invited speakers as a way to gain ce. Check to see if your state or region has this type of opportunity.
BCIA Accredited Didactic Training Programs: You may retake the didactic program as a way of refreshing your skills and gaining accredited ce. Additionally many of those providers offer shorter topic-specific programs to offer accredited ce. Check out the lists of training programs under “Become Board Certified”.
State/Regional/National Professional Associations: Many of those organizations offer accredited ce to help you maintain licensure. Should you find a course that is accredited by your licensing board and if the topic fits into the appropriate blueprint, this is an excellent way to gain ce for both your license and for your recertification.
