Neurodiagnostic Technology (previously known as EEG and nationally referred to as Electroneurodiagnostic Technology or END) is an allied health specialty for diagnosing patients with neurological disorders such as epilepsy, stroke, coma, multiple sclerosis, and many others. Orange Coast College's Neurodiagnostic technologist program provides theory and clinical experience in electroencephalography (EEG) and in Evoked Potential (BAEP, PVEP, SSEP) testing, as well as an introduction to other neurological testing procedures. As a CAAHEP-accredited END program, graduates meet the eligibility requirements to take the EEG and EP exams of the American Board of Registration in Electroencephalographic and Evoked Potential Technologists (ABRET).
Neurodiagnostic technologists are employed in hospitals. clinics. physicians' offices. university medical centers and research centers. The program can be completed in approximately 22 months and a new group of students begin the program in the fall semester of even years.
