Filing an Application

Candidates may file an application at any time during the certification process; however, applications must be on file and approved prior to considering the exam.   The signature area includes your agreement to abide by the BCIA Professional Standards and Ethical Principles of Biofeedback and follow the appropriate rules and regulations of your profession and state/region. To be accepted, applications must include: your signature, proof of current license to practice in a health care field in accordance with BCIA standards OR a signed, sealed, original transcript to be sent to BCIA from the granting institution, and payment of the $150 filing fee.

For additional information about the application refer to the Application Instructions. More detailed information about the certification process may be found in the BCIA Policies, Exams, and Fees


Fees include:

  • $150 filing fee which must be paid at the time the application is submitted.  The filing fee will be reduced to $50 if an applicant can document current enrollment in an advanced degree program at a regionally-accredited academic institution in a BCIA-approved health care field.
  • $275 certification fee prior to seating for the exam.  If this is your second BCIA certification (in addition to either BCIA Neurofeedback or PMDB), the filing fee is the same, but certification fee is reduced to $75).
