Certification by neuroCademy
The neuroCare Group’s Training & Science division, neuroCademy, offers remote and in-person training opportunities to healthcare professionals and researchers seeking instruction in neuromodulation techniques, including but not limited to repetitive Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (rTMS), transcranial Direct Current Stimulation (tDCS) and EEG Biofeedback techniques (Neurofeedback).
Participants in a neuroCademy course will be acknowledged for the hours committed to the course and its subject. The Certificate is signed in acknowledgement by the course instructors.
Certificates are granted accordingly within the following training programs:
The neuroCademy LMS (lms.neurocademy.com) is an online platform where users pay a registration fee to access pre-recorded presentations and resources covering a range of learning modules within the subject. The LMS tests users on their understanding after each learning module. Test results accumulate towards course completion. An 80% pass rate of each test is required of each learning module, towards course completion. When they have successfully completed the course, users will be able to download a Certificate acknowledging their hours spent completing the course, as well as the date of completion. Further practical training is recommended, and necessary, prior to using these techniques in a clinical setting.
The in-person training event conducted by neuroCademy course facilitators will provide all participants with a ‘Certificate of Completion’ distributed at the end of the workshop, providing they have been present and participated actively for the duration of the course. This Certificate will acknowledge the number of hours attended by the participant. If the participant fails to attend part of the workshop the document hours will be adjusted accordingly.
neuroCademy is an independent and private training organisation which operates in various countries and welcomes course participants internationally. Certificates can be presented to relevant professional bodies for recognition towards continuing professional development (CBD). Further recognition has been granted in the following regions by certain professional bodies:

Biofeedback Certification International Alliance (BCIA)
In the field of Neurofeedback, it is recommended to work towards a quality standard to ensure the highest quality care and professionalism are met. The Biofeedback Certification International Alliance (BCIA) provides this quality standard. Formerly the Biofeedback Institute of America, BCIA has a growing number of certified therapists from the Netherlands and elsewhere. Currently, there are over 40 psychologists from the Netherlands who have been certified. BCIA is a professional association which has represented the interests and monitored the quality of the Neurofeedback therapists for over 30 years.
neuroCademy (formerly Brainclinics) is one of the two educational sites where you can be educated in Neurofeedback with BCIA accreditation outside the US. BCIA strives to maintain the highest quality in the field of evidence-based Neurofeedback. BCIA provides a blueprint with the guidelines for becoming BCIA certified. All Neurofeedback therapists wishing to be BCIA certified must meet those guidelines and continue to fulfil them. You can find the blueprint here.
Your training must follow the didactic education course covering the 36-hour BCIA Blueprint of Knowledge statements from a regionally accredited academic institution or a BCIA-accredited training program.
Seeking BCIA recognition through neuroCademy
‘Neurofeedback in ADHD & Insomnia’ facilitated by neuroCademy, is a course which is an accredited learning pathway towards BCIA certification following the 36-hour BCIA Blueprint of Knowledge.
This course can be completed in two ways:
- 4-Day (in-person) Workshop “Neurofeedback in ADHD & Insomnia”
See the training calendar for next dates.
During the COVID-19 Pandemic with travel and in-person gathering restrictions, these workshops have been cancelled and substituted by the following
- Self-paced LMS course + in-person training day
The Neurofeedback in ADHD & Insomnia course is also available as pre-recorded learning modules which can be accessed via the neuroCademy LMS system. Users are tested on their knowledge towards course completion (see above). However, in order to endorse the participant towards BCIA, instructors will need to observe the participant complete a hands-on practical learning module. These are usually a one-day course held in our training centres.
