4-Day Introductory Neurofeedback Courses
Taught by Ed Hamlin, PhD, BCN and Mary Ammerman, PsyD, BCN and Anna Morrell, MS, BCN
This course is BCIA approved, counts towards BCIA certification, and provides the necessary foundation for getting started with neurofeedback. Participants will learn the arousal model, basic neuroanatomy, elements of the EEG, and the history and efficacy of neurofeedback as well as much, much more. Each day there is a hands-on practicum experience so participants can apply what they’ve learned. Please click the link below for more information.
Advanced Beginner Neurofeedback Skills Class
Taught by Mary Ammerman, PsyD, BCN
This 3-day class is designed for people who have already been through the 4-Day Introductory Course. Whether some time has passed between attending the introductory course and receiving your neurofeedback equipment or if you’ve had a few months to practice on friends and family, this class distills the most important points of the introductory course in terms of application. We will review 4 common EEG patterns associated with over and under arousal, ensure proper placement of 10-20 sites, walk through the steps of training a client from explaining neurofeedback and setting realistic client goals to assessing symptoms, recording and interpreting 2 site mini maps, selecting and adjusting protocols, using effective coaching strategies, managing thresholds, and evaluating client progress. This class provides another opportunity for hands on practice.

Intermediate Neurofeedback Level 1 Course
Taught by Ed Hamlin, PhD, BCN
This 3-day class is open to people who have completed the 4-Day Introductory Neurofeedback Course and have had at least 3-6 months of consistent practice training friends, family, and/or clients. You will look at 3-site mini maps to understand common EEG patterns and what they suggest in terms of client arousal and recommended training. You will gain a greater understanding of the review screen, how the information it contains reflects your client’s inner experiences, and how the data can help you manage your neurofeedback sessions more effectively. You will learn more about learning theory and both the skill and art of managing thresholds. Finally, you will learn fascinating information about the relationship between neuroanatomy, human consciousness, physics, and the cosmos.
Intermediate Neurofeedback Level 2 Course
Taught by Ed Hamlin, PhD, BCN
This 3-day course is open to people who have completed both the 4-Day Introductory Neurofeedback Course AND the Intermediate Level 1 Course. You will continue to expand your understanding of the EEG by adding additional sites to the mini map and improving your ability to recognize significant patterns. You will learn how to use more advanced training protocols and further your understanding of how neurofeedback can help your clients unlock their potential.
Ongoing NFB Mentoring Online (Individual, Open Groups, and Closed Groups for Specific Agencies by request)
The Biofeedback Certification International Alliance (BCIA) is the agency that oversees neurofeedback and biofeedback certification. Neurofeedback certification requires 25 hours of mentoring with a BCIA approved mentor. Mary Ammerman, PsyD, BCN is BCIA approved to provide individual and group mentoring for neurofeedback providers. Her sessions are conducted via GoToMeeting, computer software similar to Skyping that enables group members to see one another’s computer screens. That way we can review data and training sessions to get all your questions answered. Please click the link below for a copy of the BCIA mentoring agreement letter. You’re welcome to email Mary at for more information or to schedule a mentoring session.
We also now offer mentoring for providers with Anna Morrell. She offers groups (open and closed) and individual. You can reach her for mentoring at or by reaching out to Jordan at or by phone at 828-251-2882 ext. 0 and leaving your name, phone number and e-mail address.
