"EEG" is an abbreviation for the term Electroencephalography which is the study of electrical activity within the brain. Electroencephalography is of Greek origin and literally means:
Electro = electric
Encephalo = brain
Graph = writing
However, it is commonly used to refer to the actual brainwave recording or a neurodiagnostic technology group or department. Example: "Call EEG to get an EEG on this patient."

About the Program
It has been our experience that this question means different things to different people and the answer requires more specificity as to the purpose of the question.
Most people ask because they want to ensure that they will be eligible to take the ABRET EEG Registration exam after they graduate. In this scenario, the response is yes. NTI’s Neurodiagnostic Technology program is an ABRET Recognized NDT program and is categorized as an EEG Pathway II route to become eligible to take the EEG Registration Exam.
Other people ask about accreditation because they are interested in applying for a federal student loan. As of this writing, the Institute has applied for federal accreditation and is working with the accrediting agency to become federally accredited. Federal student loans such as FAFSA are not currently available to our school; however, we do offer a payment plan to applicants who qualify. Please contact us at 407-601-7832 to learn more about our financial assistance plans.
