Neurofeedback Certification Exam

Neurofeedback Technician Written Certification Exam

COVID-19 Update:  All exams must be proctored using our online proctoring service that allows you to take your exam on your own computer in your office or at home.  You must follow all of the regular procedures - filing your application, paying all fees, filing the special exam form showing us the date you selected.  Once this is all in place, we will connect you with the online proctoring service.  This process will also save you money!

New in 2020 - The Neurofeedback Exam for Technicians has been revised to be a shorter version that includes only those items as would be in the scope of work appropriate for a non-licensed person.

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 approximately 50 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, remembering that some of this information may be appropriate for those who are not technicians.

  • The written certification exam may be taken using only the special exam option which currently only allows all test takers to use our online proctoring service.  For more information on how to make arrangements for a special exam, please refer to Special Exam 101.
  • Special exams fees: $25 payable to BCIA with an additional $20 to the online proctor..
    Please use this link to pay your exam fees.
  • A Core Reading List is provided to aid in preparation for the exam and to reinforce the learning of the science, history, and theory of neurofeedback.
