Information about Equipment                                                for Neurofeedback Course

The 36 hrs. BCIA Neurofeedback Certification course will expose attendees to various software applications and neurofeedback equipment to help introduce attendees to various equipment offerings.  Sadar Psychological is not affiliated with selling any neurofeedback equipment.  We feel this allows us to help you evaluate and select the equipment that is best for your and your patient’s needs.  We have partnered with several equipment manufacturers to provide course attendees with instructional videos demonstrating different neurofeedback software programs.  As part of the course you will recieve detailed information about equipement pakages and costs from various vendors.

If you would like to have equipment for practice as you take the course, we will help you obtain “rental” equipment from one of our vendor partners.

We are committed to helping you become a qualified neurofeedback provider.  Following the course,  you are invited to join our bi-monthly community meetings to discuss various topics and cases.  You also are granted access to video recordings of prior community meetings.

Great course; great job EVERYONE. I appreciate your passion for Neurofeedback and your encouragement to preserve the integrity of Neurofeedback practice!

Thank you! I look forward to future meetings and more learning.

I really enjoyed having the guest lecturers. They provided a great deal of information. The cases presentations were very interesting and helpful. I also appreciated the review of current research.

Very thorough training. Well presented and responsive instructors. Liked the live, remote training due to cost effectiveness and comfort during COVID.

I think this course was great. I know it was the first virtual course but I think it ran very smoothly. Questions were always answered.

It was nice to be able to use the chat feature.

This course was extremely entertaining, and provided a great deal of knowledge. My only wish was that it was in person, but due to the circumstances you did an amazing job!
