Biofeedback Recertification

How Can I Become Recertified in Biofeedback?

1.  Review  your CE credits to be sure that you have completed the requirement.
2.  Review the BCIA Professional Standards and Ethical  Principles of Biofeedback to ensure you understand and are in full compliance. 
3.  Complete, sign, and submit your recertification application.  Include a copy of your license if appropriate.
4.  Pay your fees, either online or by check.  Fees will not be processed without the application.

CE Requirements
Candidates for recertification must complete 48 hours of accredited continuing education related to the Blueprint (Senior Fellows only 30 hours), relevant to biofeedback and/or the disorder you may be treating with the majority of your hours being biofeedback-specific.    As part of the CE requirement, you must be able to document a minimum of 3 hours of ethics/professional standards course work.  Note:  MOST licensed health care professionals have accomplished this through license maintenance.
