5-Day Biofeedback Certificate Program: Classroom & Online Format


October 24-26, 2018: 5-Day Biofeedback Certificate Program: Classroom & Online Format


3-Days in Classroom & 2-Days Live Online
42 Continuing Education Hours

Stens Corporation is pleased to present a  professional training format for biofeedback clinicians, designed to save resources and time away from work and home.  The first three days of the 5-Day program is conducted in face-to-face traditional classroom, immediately followed by 2-day live, online training. The online portion is also augmented with assignments to be completed at your own pace.   

The classroom portion of the program is "hands-on" orientated.  Working with the most advanced biofeedback equipment, you will learn how to navigate through biofeedback software and how to set-up clients for successful training.

The online training is live with instructor and focuses on biofeedback theory and application.  Participants can asks questions and make comments in real time. A "5-session" protocol is reviewed  that is appropriate for most stress related applications.  All of the live online presentations are recorded. If an online presentation is missed, participants can "catch up" by  watching the recorded portion.  

 Participants must complete all assignments.  A final test, covering assigned readings and films must be taken at the end of the class.  If unable to take the test or view recordings of missed sessions, total course hours completed will be reduced by the amount of time attributed to these assignments. 

This course is accredited to provide 42 hours of education to fulfill the didactic requirement toward BCIA Certification. The American Psychological Association has approved the Stens Corporation to sponsor continuing education for psychologists. The Stens Corporation maintains responsibility for the program and its content.
