The Process and Benefits of Becoming Certified in qEEG
What Can You Do With Your qEEG Certification?
If you are looking for a promising career where you can help people, get your qEEG Certification through the International QEEG Certification Board (IQCB).
The IQCB offers technician and diplomate certifications. Applicants file an application ($200), enroll in an IQCB-accredited didactic course, complete practice and mentoring, and take their QEEG exam ($150).
Mentoring involves a minimum of 10 contact hours to review 10 patient/client data analysis and 5 QEEG report presentations. Two of these hours must involve direct observation. You may have more than one mentor and will negotiate the price of mentoring hours.
Don't overlook used equipment when you search for neurofeedback systems. You will require at least a 19-channel EEG amplifier.
Consider BrainMaster Technologies Inc. and Mind Media (NeXus).
The annual meetings of the Association for Applied Psychophysiology and Biofeedback (AAPB), the International Society for Neuroregulation & Research (ISNR), the Mid-Atlantic Biofeedback Society (MABS), and the Northeast Regional Biofeedback Society (NRBS) provide great opportunities to discuss your needs with vendors and take a test drive.
