Electroneurodiagnostics (END) is one of the newer and most rapidly growing specialties in the medical field. It is devoted to the recording and study of the electrical activity of the brain and nervous system. END technologists record electrical activity arising primarily from the brain, spinal cord, peripheral nerves, or somato-sensory systems using a variety of techniques and instruments.
END classes are held during the day. Students are expected to participate in classroom, laboratory, and clinical (hospital) experiences. Students may be required to travel to out-of-town clinical sites. The END program consists of four (4) semesters which takes two (2) years to complete. Graduate of the program will be eligible to apply to
take the registration examination sponsored by the American Board of Registration of Electroencephalographic and Evoked Potential Technology (ABRET).
Please note: Clinical facilities may require students to undergo criminal background checks and/or drug testing. Clinical facilities may refuse access to clinical experiences based on the results of criminal background checks and/or drug testing, which would result in the student being unable to continue in the END program.
Take pride in your previously earned career experience. Registered END technicians (ABRET) who are currently employed can apply knowledge of electroneurodiagnostics toward an online associate bridge program in Electroneurodiagnostic Technology.
All courses will be offered in an online format and can be started throughout the year.
Students will have the opportunity to challenge the final exam for any current didactic Electroneurodiagnostic Technology program course. Students who score less than 80 will be required to take the course.
END Technologists can work in hospital, physician’s offices, clinics, research facilities, and specialized epilepsy and sleep centers. Employment opportunities are available in this county and throughout the nation. Salaries range from $37,800 to $97,000 with an average salary of about $40,000. Credentialed practitioners tend to earn more.
Electroneurdiagnostic has a 100% job placement for 2016 graduates
