Neurofeedback Written Certification Exam
The exam may be taken at any time after approval of your application and payment of all fees; however, we recommend it as the last requirement in the certification process. The examination is offered in English only and is based on the Blueprint of Knowledge Statements. The exam consists of 100 multiple-choice items sourced from the Core Reading List. The number of exam items from a blueprint area correspond to the number of hours in that rubric; the smaller the rubric, the fewer questions will be in the exam from that content area. For more information, please refer to Neurofeedback Exam 101.
- The written certification exam may be taken either at one of the scheduled exam sites or through the special exam option which allows a pre-approved candidate to schedule their exam using a university or other approved testing site with a proctor. For more information on how to make arrangements for a special exam, please refer to Special Exam 101.
- Special exams fees: $100 for the paper/pencil version, $50 for online testing software.
