Learn to capture recordings of patients’ nervous system function.
Gain skills in our modern labs and apply them in clinical experience settings.ᶛᶛ
Complete your degree in as few as 17 months of study.*
Neurodiagnostic technicians (NDTs) use a variety of equipment to take measurements and recordings of patients’ brain and nervous system function. These recordings offer physicians the information they need to assess and diagnose patients with epilepsy, traumatic brain injury (TBI) and many other conditions.
As an NDT, you will take patient medical histories and help prepare patients for their imaging procedures. You’ll conduct a variety of tests, including electroencephalograms (EEGs), nerve conduction studies, sleep studies and more. Once completed, you’ll evaluate the results to ensure you were able to capture the information needed and report to the physician or other health care professional on duty.
Preparation for Certification Exams
After graduation from the NDT degree program, you’ll be eligible to take professional certification examinations† offered by the following organizations:
- American Board of Registered Electroneurodiagnostic Technologists, Inc. (ABRET)
- American Association of Electrodiagnostic Technologists (AAET)
- Board of Registered Polysomnography Technologists (BRPT)
Earning certification can enhance your professional profile in the job market. Please note that additional experience or training may be required after graduation to complete certification.
Neurodiagnostic Technology Curriculum
The NDT associate degree program at Concorde San Bernardino teaches practical skills and knowledge to prepare you to conduct electroencephalography (EEG), evoked potential (EP), long term monitoring (LTM), polysomnography (PSG), nerve conduction studies (NCS), and intraoperative neuromonitoring (IONM).
This program also covers NDT lab operations and management, plus preparation for certification exams.
- Evoked Potentials
- Nerve Conduction Velocities
- Neuroanatomy and Physiology
- Pattern Recognition
†Professional certification is not a requirement for graduation, may not be a requirement for employment nor does it guarantee employment. Registration and certification requirements for taking and passing these examinations are not controlled by Concorde, but by outside agencies, and are subject to change by the agency without notice. Therefore, Concorde cannot guarantee that graduates will be eligible to take these exams, at all or at any specific time, regardless of their eligibility status upon enrollment.
