Introduction

We offer General Biofeedback and EEG Neurofeedback BCIA Certification programs of exceptional quality and low cost.

These are outstanding opportunities for participants to learn traditional, mainstream, clinical biofeedback applications, as well as the fast growing specialty of EEG Neurofeedback. HTS Instructors are among the most experienced and successful instructor/practitioners in biofeedback. Likewise, many of the professionals we have trained over the past thirty-four years are today among the most successful biofeedback practitioners in the world. Our hands-on seminars include lectures, demonstrations, video, dialogues and supervised training on leading instrument systems. Our unique strategies provide a systematic, guided approach to clinical and economic success in biofeedback including:

  1. All of the didactic BCIA hours (48 hours General Biofeedback & 36 hours EEG Neurofeedback)
  2. Learning biofeedback applications that can be applied immediately
  3. Integration of biofeedback into your individual therapy or educational style
  4. Identification of those biofeedback specialties that are most suited to you or your organization
  5. How to continue to improve your practical and scientific biofeedback knowledge in the most cost effective ways
