CBIS / CBIST Certification
Clinical experience and leadership is critical for staff who work in the field of brain injury rehabilitation. Staff who have experience produce better outcomes for the individuals that they work with every day. The American Academy of Brain Injury Specialists (AACBIS) was created under the auspices of the Brain Injury Association of America to provide a standard of training for persons working with individuals with brain injury. Certifications through AACBIS include Certified Brain Injury Specialist (CBIS) and Certified Brain Injury Specialist Trainers (CBIST). Currently a internationally recognized certification body, the mission of AACBIS is to improve the quality of care by establishing accepted competency standards for the education and training of individuals working in brain injury rehabilitation.
When individuals achieve a CBIS credential:
- They significantly improve their knowledge base regarding the specialized needs of people with brain injuries, which allows them to identify issues, problems and solutions earlier, and improve outcomes for our clients.
- They elevate the quality of the clinical discussions in treatment teams, which improves continuity, individualization, and appropriateness of care.
- They are motivated to continue their professional development through the annual renewal and CEU process, giving them opportunities to step back from their busy work lives, and appreciate and improve the care they give.
- They are validated with a specialized certification that recognizes their unique skills, and the time and effort it takes to master those skills.
We can provide some of our services in French.
