Essential Information

EEG technicians or electroneurodiagnostic (END) technologists monitor brain and spinal activity by carrying out EEG tests on patients and reporting findings to physicians. Due to the specific technical nature of the job of an EEG technician, fully online training programs are not readily available. Hybrid programs are available and require a clinical lab component mandating hands-on training under supervision. Clinical coursework requires travel to hospitals or other clinical facilities.

Many hybrid courses are part of associate's degree programs in END technology or geared toward achieving certification. Voluntary national certification is available through the American Board of Registration of Electroencephalographic and Evoked Potential Technologists (ABRET). This organization also supplies stand alone online programs (ASET.org).

Online EEG Technician Training Courses.

Below are some of the EEG courses that are available online. Some courses have an on-campus lab component.

  • Medical Terminology Course: In this course, students build medical vocabulary and familiarity with the roots and prefixes found in medical language. Appropriate communication skills and technical descriptions in all major body systems are taught. This course typically uses DVDs or CDs for pronunciation assistance.
  • Anatomy and Physiology Course: Students review the human body structure and function in this course. Neuroanatomy and neurophysiology are of particular focus. Common neurological disorders and diseases such as strokes, tumors and seizures are examined. This course may include a lab component.
  • Neurodiagnostic Technology Course: This course outlines EEG technician job functions. Topics of study include EEG recording techniques through electrode placement, adjusting electrical signals and recording activity. Common errors are discussed. Another focus includes patient management and care.
  • Electronics and Instrumentation Course: Online learners are presented with electrical concepts including amplification, polarity and frequency. Analog and digital electroencephalogram usages are compared. Students also explore safety techniques.
  • Polysomnography Course: In this more advanced course, students study various sleep disorders, treatments and corresponding polysomnographic readings. They learn to recognize sleep stages and patterns. This course may involve a lab component in which students gain hands-on experience in simulated testing situations.
  • Instrumentation: Students examine the basics of EEG instrumentation. Topics covered include EEG instrument settings, dealing with electrical safety issues, maintaining and calibrating EEG instruments, formatting EEG data, storing data, and data retrieval.
