If you have at least medium speed internet service, you do not have to go to any particular location for the portion of your training which requires you to record subjects under direct supervision. We can use the web to watch the signals on your biofeedback device as they are recorded — using "Go-to-Meeting" software — and can see you and your patient in real time through use of a computer based webcam. Your training cases DO NOT need to be patients. They can be average people so educators, coaches, and those clinicians in-training who don’t have their licenses yet can still get appropriate training which counts toward BCIA certification.
