The NBAS Course and Certification

We will give you thorough teaching and support to guide you to becoming confident and ready to use the NBAS tool.

Re-certification every 3 years for clinicians is not compulsory, but it is highly recommended for researchers.  We offer a one day Refresher Course if there are NBAS trained people who would like the opportunity to update and refresh their knowledge.
