Continuing Education Units (CEUs)
Continuing your education in Biofeedback and other modalities is very important to keep your knowledge base current. A single CEU is defined as 50 consecutive clock minutes of participation in a board approved biofeedback Continuing Education Unit (CEU) class of activity. The annual recertification requirement is 20 CEUs. Completion of this requirement needs to be documented on the recertification form. Each certified practitioner should retain proof of meeting the certification, as you may need to send documentation for rectification if BANHS cannot verify it directly. If you are currently BANHS certified, you will receive email notice when your recertification is due. If your contact information changes, please contact us to update this information.
