Human Physiology

Fulfills BCIA’s Anatomy and Physiology Requirement for Biofeedback



Biosource Software offers a $125 self-paced Human Physiology online didactic course that fulfills BCIA’s Anatomy and Physiology requirement for Biofeedback certification.

You may also use this course to satisfy 45 of 48 hours of continuing education for Biofeedback or Neurofeedback recertification. At less than $3 per credit hour, this is one of the most affordable ways to complete almost all of the hours required for recertification.
