Who can become a trainer?
Anyone who has reasonable computer competence can easily learn to use NeurOptimal® (if you can work a smartphone you can work NeurOptimal®).
Note: You must own either a personal or a profesional NeurOptimal System in order to be a trainer. Personal/Professional Unit Sales - Mention Craig Walker on your order to receive maximum support for the life of your system.
As a trainer your role is to use NeurOptimal® as a tool and to support your client as they go through a transformational process. The trainer creates the space for change to happen.
Many psychologists and psychotherapists add it as a tool to their practice. In fact, many such people increasingly use NeurOptimal® as their primary tool. But it is also used by other professionals such as doctors, teachers, hypnotherapists, acupuncturists, chiropracters, nutritionists, stress managements specialists and coaches.
However, you do not need to have any specific professional background to become a trainer. Because it is a brain training and not a therapy, you do not need to be a therapist. It is a completely safe approach. Consequently some people who simply have an interest to help others set up a practice and make a good living out of it.
Finally, parents of Special Needs children often train in order to help their own children or to provide support services to a wider Special Needs community.
Some trainers set up extensive practices with multiple NeurOptimal® systems. Typically, in California a session of neurofeedback will cost between $80.00 and $125.00 depending upon location.
While many trainers run a general private practice, many choose to work with an area that they have a special interest in e.g. sleep issues, stress, sports people, business performance etc.
NeurOptimal® brain training works with the central nervous system — your brain — by targeting shifts in the brain’s activity that can undermine optimal brain function.

NeurOptimal® provides information back to the brain and central nervous system about what it's just done by measuring the electrical activity of the brain as measured at the top of the scalp. Our brain's and central nervous system's have done a masterful job in helping us to survive when times are tough and some of those survival techniques no longer serve us. NeurOptimal® helps the brain and central nervous system learn about what it's doing during a session and lets it respond as it sees fit. It's like providing a mirror for the brain and central nervous system to make it's own adjustments in returning to it's inherent resilience and flexibity that it had at birth.

NeurOptimal® or a Linear System?
With NeurOptimal®, the brain is simply interacting adaptively with itself moment by moment, not striving to produce more of some frequency and less of another.
All systems other than NeurOptimal® require the practitioner to first make a diagnosis in some way, such as using past medical or psychological history, QEEG, (brain maps), or standardized testing to create a protocol-driven program. For this reason, most other systems require the administrator to be a licensed healthcare practitioner. A one-moment in time picture of your brain may also be conducted, that shows the dominant frequencies it is producing in which location at that time. Treatment is usually training a minimal selection of frequencies in different areas of the brain, and the focus of training will be on one symptom cluster for a period of weeks or months until, hopefully, there is resolution, at which point the training will be adjusted to address another symptom cluster and so on. It is a linear, stepped process, and sometimes the frequencies needed for one set of symptoms can be wrong for another, which can lead to confusion and a trial and error course training.
With NeurOptimal® there is no need for diagnosis. NeurOptimal® is designed to give the brain continual information about what it has just done. The brain then uses this information to organize itself. During a session, the client listens to music or watches a movie file. As soon as NeurOptimal® detects that the brain is about to make a change, feedback is provided via a very brief pause in the sound. The brain then adapts itself in response to the information, which then provides yet new and different information for NeurOptimal® to mirror back. With NeurOptimal® the brain is simply interacting adaptively with itself moment by moment, not striving to produce more of some frequency and less of another. While those kinds of changes may be observed, they occur as part of an intrinsic self-organizing principal rather than an artificially imposed constraint. This is a large part of both the inherent power and safety of NeurOptimal® and how it invites very seamless change.
NeurOptimal® is truly “plug and play” with no complicated set-up or expertise required. For all of its internal design complexity, NeurOptimal’s® ease-of-use gives it a significant advantage over other systems.
Instead of targeting specific symptoms, NeurOptimal® focuses on optimizing overall brain function. This approach naturally ameliorates most complaints, whatever their source.
When you are training, no electricity, vibration or external signal is going into the brain. In addition, brain training with NeurOptimal® does not target specific areas of the brain nor does it push the brain in any direction by giving it goals to achieve, decided by an “expert”. In this way, NeurOptimal® is globally effective while remarkably free of unwanted side effects.
Each brain is unique and knows the best way to “correct” itself for improved efficiency. NeurOptimal® simply provides the central nervous system with information about its own activity. Given the right information the brain can naturally optimize itself.
