Sample Statement of Practical Experience and Letters of Verification for Technician Neurofeedback Certification by Prior Experience

In order to apply for neurofeedback technician certification by prior experience (CPE), your statement of Practical Experience should include:

  • Timeframe using neurofeedback
  • Approximate number of patient/clients in that time frame (For an example, as a way to calculate your hours, if you saw 20 clients for a one-hour session per week for 50 weeks a year, that would be 1,000 patient/client hours)
  • The diagnoses you worked with under appropriate supervision
  • Setting (private practice, hospital, etc.)

An example of a proper statement is provided below:

"As a neurofeedback technician working for a licensed psychologist, neurofeedback was added to the practice in 1998. For the first 2 years, it was only about 20% of the practice or about 800 hours. The practice grew steadily through about 2005 and neurofeedback was at least 50% of the work during those years or about 6,000 hours. From 2006, I used neurofeedback with at least 75% of the clients or about 1500 hours per year. I estimate that I have performed well over 10,000 hours of neurofeedback under appropriate supervision."

Sample Letter of Verification

"I have read the statement of clinical practice for ________. I have known him/her for over 10 years and can agree with his/her account of his/her clinical work using neurofeedback modalities."

A recommender may add any other statements that would be helpful for the board to review. For example:

"I have worked with their supervisor and have noted the professional manner of the technician’s work throughout the years.”
