Electroencephalography Tech Schools and Colleges in the U.S.

Electroencephalography (EEG) technicians use specialized medical equipment to record data from brain waves. Students can prepare for entry-level EEG technician positions through an associate's degree or advanced technical certificate program in electroneurodiagnostic (END) technology.

Students who want to work as electroencephalography techs can find programs at community colleges and vocational schools. These include one-year certificate programs and associate's degrees that take about two years to complete.

School Selection Criteria

Consider the following when looking for EEG tech schools:

  • Students might want to take a look at a program's job placement rate in order to gauge how well the curriculum prepares graduates for employment.
  • Students should consider their scheduling constraints and preferences when choosing between programs. For instance, some programs require students to give up their summers.
  • If a student wants to learn more than one diagnostic scanning technique, he or she might look for an END program that includes training in both EEG and polysomnography (PSG).
  • Prospective students may want to confirm, prior to their enrollment, that a program has earned accreditation.

Associate of Applied Science in Electroneurodiagnostic Technology

Associate's degree programs in END technology typically include introductory health courses, including anatomy and physiology, medical terminology, pharmacology and basic patient care, as well as general education classes. Students learn EEG techniques through lectures and labs and then apply their skills in clinical experiences.

Advanced Technical Certificate in Electroneurodiagnostic Technology

Certificate programs in END technology often include the same advanced courses as associate's degree programs, but they tend to lack the general education courses. They also include clinical experiences.

There are two educational options for students who want to become electroencephalography techs. It is generally best for students to choose accredited schools that offer programs consistent with their schedules and educational interests.
