Our Online Courses and Certificates

About the courses: Our continuing education courses are available to clinicians, coaches, and educators interested in learning about psychology related topics such as biofeedback. They are all in distance / home learning, format including pre-recorded audiovisual lectures, movies, readings in texts, and frequent interactions with the instructor. Students work at their own paces and have up to a year after the date of purchase to complete a course. All course material is accessed from the course web site so people interested in our courses must have consistent access to the internet.

These are distance learning courses (rather than self-directed learning courses) as there is substantial interaction between the faculty and student. Distance education refers to instruction delivered to students who are separated from their instructor and in support of regular and substantive interaction between them, whether in real time or through time delay.  Substantial interaction is where a student and a faculty participate in back and forth discussions on an educational topic. These are continuing education, not university accredited, courses.

NO CDs or other materials are mailed to students. All materials are sent via the web.
How you learn: Our students learn by attending both pre-recorded lectures and live – real time – classes with instructors during which students and instructors can see and hear each other. It’s almost like being there in person. They read texts as well.
