To obtain the Brain Injury Fundamentals Certificate, candidates must submit an application, attend a mandatory Fundamentals training,
and pass the post-training online quiz.
ACBIS maintains all applications for one year beginning on the date of submission. After one year, applications expire and applicants who have not completed the process (application submission and successfully completing the quiz) will be required to reapply to further pursue the certificate.
Training is mandatory in order to receive the certificate. Candidates must register for an official course with a Brain Injury Fundamentals Instructor. Once a course is coordinated, the instructor must officially register the course with ACBIS by submitting the Fundamentals Training Registration Form. We recommend submitting this form at least three weeks prior to scheduled training.
Before submitting the Brain Injury Fundamentals Application Form, applicants will need to pay an application fee. Applications cannot be processed until payment has been confirmed.
Payments should be received by BIAA at least two weeks in advance of the training to ensure workbooks will arrive in time
for training. Please note: Orders received by 3 p.m. EST Thursday will ship on Friday. Payments made past that time will ship out the following
