Neurodiagnostic Technologist Training Details
The Neurodiagnostic Technologist certificate program at AIMS is officially approved by ABRET. This program will prepare students to record and study the electrical activity in the brain and nervous system. Students receive intensive classroom instruction combined with practical hands-on experience in a clinical lab setting.
Upon successful completion of the program, graduates will have a better understanding of neurophysiology and will be able to recognize both normal and abnormal electrical activity. For students interested in becoming EEG technologists, this program is a great option. You'll be trained to do EEGs as well as a number of other procedures.
Some of the job responsibilities for Neurodiagnostic Technologists include obtaining patient medical histories, recording electrical potentials, calculating test results, and maintaining medical equipment.
In addition they perform a variety of neurodiagnostic procedures including EEGs (Electroencephalography), EPs (Evoked Potentials), NCSs (Nerve Conduction Studies), and IONMs (Intra Operative Neurophysiologic Monitoring). The program at AIMS also includes specialty training in Polysomnography (sleep study). Working alongside doctors, END Technologists must also develop a good rapport with patients, including comforting them during the various procedures.
Neurodiagnostic Technologists and EEG Technologists are in high demand throughout the United States. Employment opportunities are available in a variety of settings including hospitals, clinics, sleep labs, and even medical sales companies that deal with NDT related technologies. Following completion of our NDT certificate program, graduates can find employment opportunities at physician's clinics, out-patient facilities, nursing homes, and hosptials.
Certification / Registry Exam Eligibility
NDT graduates will be eligible to take the registration examination for EEG technologists (Part I and Part II) offered by ABRET. Graduates who pass both parts will earn the R. EEG T. credential.
Eligibility requirements for the R. EEG T. credential are solely determined by ABRET, and are subject to change at any time. ABRET is an independent organization. AIMS does not guarantee certification/registry exam eligibility.
