Certification is for those with a health care degree from a regionally accredited academic institution in accordance with BCIA's policies and procedures. If you do not have a health care degree as outlined; however, you are working under the legal supervision of a licensed and BCIA certified provider, please review the Technician Certification.

Those without a degree or a health care that meets these requirements may consider the Technician Certification if they are currently employed by a licensed BCB who is able to provide legal supervision.
Certification by Prior Experience
Certification by Prior Experience (CPE) is designed for the licensed health care professional who can document extensive education, training, and at least 5 years of clinical experience using biofeedback with patients/clients.
