ASET Continuing Education Units (ASET-CEUs) are awarded to programs who apply to ASET for this designation and who maintain the highest quality of education for the profession. Attendees are then awarded ASET-CEUs for the number of hours in which they participate in a particular program. These ASET-CEUs can then be used to document continuing education for recertification or professional development within a hospital or healthcare setting. ASET-CEUs are recognized by ABRET, BRPT and BCIA for recertification.

ABRET accepts ASET CEUs for continuing education credit. The BRPT approved EEG 101-111 and continues to accept these ASET online courses for continuing education credits towards re-certification (RPSGT). BCIA has approved, EEG 101, 102, 105, 106A, 106B, 108, 109, 110, and 111 for Category A, Accredited continuing education.

EEG 112 Final Review and Practice Exam
This course is intended to help the learner prepare to take the credentialing exam (successful completion of this course does not guarantee the learner will pass the credentialing exam). Extensive study is required to prepare, and the learner should set aside several hours a week for six months to one year to adequately prepare for the exam. The questions (500 study questions with the answer sheet and 1500+ in a database for practice exams) and review material (20 handouts) included in this courses will help guide the learner in the appropriate areas of study, and the questions in this review fall under the general topic outline of subjects covered in the credentialing exam. Passing the credentialing exam requires the development of a knowledge base of EEG Technology as well as the development of critical thinking skills. A credentialed supervisor, tutor, or mentor can help greatly in the preparation of a technologist for oral exams, and such a person, or a ACNS certified electroencephalographer should be sought and their help enlisted if at all possible. IMPORTANT NOTE: Purchase of this course is for a limited period. The course begins a one year timer when the purchaser first logs on.
This course contains over 1500 practice exam questions and 3 phases of interactive practice exams, which allows the learner to simulate a timed 250-questions exam in preparation for taking the credentialing exam. Also included are study aids and guides to help study and prepare for the credentialing exam. From the time of the first log on, the participants will have 365 days of access to the questions. Study material is in the form of PDF downloads which can be printed or kept on a computer desktop for study. No credit is given since there is no final grade and no new material is introduced. This is a final review tool and practice exam.
