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.

– Joy Martin

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!
