What is the CBIS Certification?May 10, 2020
The Brain Injury Association of America’s Academy of Certified Brain Injury Specialists (ACBIS) is the largest national program providing education, training, certification, and ongoing resources for multi-disciplinary specialists in the brain injury community.
ACBIS offers the opportunity for professionals working in brain injury services to earn a nationally recognized credential: Certified Brain Injury Specialist (CBIS).
