Credentialing Organizations

Professional credentials are becoming the norm as the required skill sets become more complex and demanding for neurodiagnostic technologists. In fact, credentials have been required by Medicare since 1998 for independent contractors (or independent diagnostic testing facilities) who bill Medicare for diagnostic procedures.
 

The following organizations administer and award the R. EEG T., R. EP T., CNIM, CLTM, RPSGT, CPSGT, and R.NCS.T. credentials to technologists. For specific requirements, including recertification, refer to the individual Websites for the most current updates
