AIMS Electroneurodiagnostic Technologist (NDT) Program Officially Approved!
AIMS Education recently submitted its Neurodiagnostic Technologist (NDT) program to the American Board of Registration Of Electroencephalographic and Evoked Potential Technologists (ABRET) for official recognition. After an extensive review of the program, ABRET has officially approved the program as a Formal NDT Education Program. Including AIMS, there are currently only six schools in the world with ABRET approved NDT programs.
Receiving ABRET approval is an incredible achievement for AIMS, and it represents a significant advantage for all of our students and future graduates. AIMS graduates will now be eligible to sit for the EEG registry examination administered by ABRET. Being registered as an EEG Technologist through ABRET will help distinguish our graduates in the job market, and it will open up the opportunity to eventually become registered in Long Term Monitoring, Evoked Potential, and Neurophysiologic Intraoperative Monitoring.
ABRET seeks to encourage, establish and maintain the highest standards of clinical Electroencephalography, Evoked Potential Technology, and Neurophysiologic Intraoperative and Long Term monitoring, by offering credentialing exams to evaluate the skills and knowledge of technologists, and by supporting lab accreditation.
The American Board of Registration Of Electroencephalographic and Evoked Potential Technologists (ABRET) is a nonprofit credentialing board for Electroencephalographic (EEG)Technologists, Evoked Potential (EP) Technologists, and Neurophysiologic Intraoperative Monitoring (CNIM) Technologists and Long Term Monitoring (CLTM) Technologists, and seeks to encourage, establish and maintain the highest standards, traditions and principles of these technologies. ABRET Registered and Certified Technologists should recognize their responsibilities, not only to their patients, but also to society, to other health care professionals and to themselves.
