PMDB Recertification

How Can I Become Recertified in PMDB?

New in 2021 - Recertification is now a 4-year period.  Candidates for recertification must complete 48 hours of accredited continuing education related to the PMDB Blueprint and/or the disorder you may be treating with the majority of your hours being biofeedback-specific. Individuals certified in more than one BCIA program may use CE credits taken from either program.  If for any reason you are unable to complete the CE requirement, you may take the certification exam as an option. 
Senior Fellows must complete 30 hours of accredited continuing education.

Three of the required hours must be related to ethics and professional standards.  
**Because all applicants are licensed health professionals, many will have the completed the continuing education as a function of renewing their license.
