Biofeedback Certification International Alliance
In the field of neurofeedback it is becoming more and more important to have a quality standard to ensure the highest standards and professionalism are met. The Biofeedback Certification International Alliance (BCIA) provides this quality standard. Formerly the Biofeedback Institute of America, BCIA have 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 therapist 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 to become BCIA certified. All Neurofeedback therapists wishing to be BCIA certified have to meet those guidelines and continue to fulfill 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. This is a 4-day course provided by neuroCademy. Course dates can be found here.
