Neurodiagnostic technologists (EDT), EEG technologists and electroneurodiagnostic technologists are highly skilled professionals trained to perform electroencephalograms (EEGs) in medical facilities and outpatient centers under the direct supervision of a health care provider. The Neurodiagnostic Technology Program at Kellogg Community College is an Associate in Applied Science degree program. The program has been developed to be consistent with standards and requirements of the Commission on Accreditation of Allied Health Education Programs (CAAHEP) and is accredited by the CAAHEP.
KCC’s Neurodiagnostic Technologist Program is offered through a partnership with other Michigan community colleges in the Educational Programs in Collaboration (EPiC) Consortium. Each college enrolls students in the program under their admission criteria and each awards the degree according to that college’s completion requirements.
Students in the program complete EEG courses delivered in an online environment by one of the EPiC colleges through Michigan Colleges Online. Clinical education courses are arranged through the EPiC Consortium’s program director in collaboration with the EEG departments of affiliating hospitals, clinics or other EEG provider facilities. Upon completion of the EEG program graduates will be eligible to take the American Board of Registration in Electroencephalographic (ABRET) exam. Upon passing the ABRET exam, neurodiagnostic technologists have earned their R.EEG.T.

Why Study Neurodiagnostic Technologist at KCC?
KCC’s Neurodiagnostic Technologist Program is designed with the busy student in mind. Many students are looking to increase their skills but need to work, making it very challenging to attend courses. This program is unique in that all the coursework is online or hybrid with minimal set classroom attendance needed. This creates the flexibility that many students need to accommodate their personal situations. The program is also run in a cohort, giving the student a learning community to draw upon while in the program.
Clinical learning experiences are provided by affiliating hospitals, clinics and other outpatient facilities. Didactic learning experiences occur in supportive college coursework delivered through an online environment and laboratory practice. Both are equally important to the development of the competent neurodiagnostic technologist.
