This article contains information about neurofeedback training, including recommended courses for using EEGer in a clinical capacity. For additional information about getting started with EEGer, see these articles:

Note: Attending a neurofeedback training course is not required to use EEGer as a Home-User. Many courses are focused on clinical approaches to neurofeedback, and therefore are not relevant when using the software in Home Use mode.

Choosing a Training Course

There are a variety of training courses that are sufficient to get started with EEGer in a clinical capacity. Some of these courses are offered through EEG Education & Research (via EEG Learn), and others are offered by distributors or users of the EEGer software.

Some courses are offered online, where attendees complete coursework and follow prerecorded or live training sessions. Other courses are in-person, which usually involves traveling and using provided equipment for the duration of the training.

Recommend training courses include:

EEGer Introducion to Neurofeedback Course
Neurofeedback in a Clinical Practice Presented by Dr. Ed Hamlin and Dr. Mary Ammerman
Neurofeedback in a Clinical Practice Presented by Dr. Moshe Perl

The most important thing to look for is hands-on time with the EEGer software itself, as this is a key part to understanding the process and having a smooth start. Availability of EEGer-specific training depends largely on the region that the attendee finds themselves in (time zones, language, etc.). If an EEGer course is not available, a comparable BCIA-approved introductory neurofeedback course is recommended, usually with additional training and mentoring throughout the first year.

The cost of training depends on many factors and varies between courses. It is recommended to check the offer page for each course to compare the cost, what material is covered, and the length of the training. When comparing online courses to in-person courses, it is important to consider the additional cost of travel and lodging for the duration of the in-person training, which may last several days.

Most courses recommend some type of active mentoring for several weeks or months following training, especially while beginning to run sessions with clients. Some courses may include this as part of their initial costs, but there is generally some type of fee associated with these sessions. This will vary depending on which mentor, their availability, and the type of work that is being done with them.
